February 2015: Bolens Estate Keeperfeatured tractor bolens estate keeper
Here's the story:
I got a call from a neighbor saying his friend had a Bolens Articulating tractor for sale. As usual I always picture worst case scenario, all rusted out or one of the new "FS" series ones, anyway I never pass on an opportunity to look at a Bolens so I went down to check things out.
I got to his house and as I turned the corner around the garage my jaw just about dropped!
An all original 1965 EK7!!!!!!!!
Believe it or not this was actually going to be scrapped if the guy did not pull this from his neighbor's garage and bring it to his place ( I believe the gentleman who owned this passed away and the property needed to be cleared)
This has never seen a night outside in its entire life and is truly a survivor. There was even a maintenance tag on the shifter with the last oil change being performed in 1974 which could have been the last time this was ever used by the looks of it!
I am going to leave everything exactly as it is , There are still "nubs" on the 50 year old tires and factory belts all around! The mower deck still has paint underneath and on the blades. Its truly remarkable that the seat is in almost pristine shape as well and no mice have chewed on the material in 50 years, nothing has been touched up the best I can tell and even has its original battery hold down clamps and cloth coated wiring harness!!!
