    I wasn't sure if this could go here or if it should be in the Craigslist/eBay Finds forum? Anyways, at the risk of potentially losing out on these to someone else, I wanted to share this with the group to see what others thought about this. I found someone selling TWO Bolens Large Frame 1256...

    I have for sale a large frame Cozy cab that came off my old 1886. All glass is intact but if I recall correctly one window is cracked. The cab is complete with wiper and fan. This is a very nice cab! $500 Minnetonka, MN 55305

    If someone could take the time to upload the Owner's Manual for an early large frame 48" mower (18048 or 49), I would really appreciate it. The only large frame mower owners manual in the Manuals section is for a later 54" mower and the pictures have no detail and are not easily deciphered...

    Well, I just got back home after spending all day on my latest road trip. I must have the same luck as Old Buzzard though when it comes to road trips as it was raining like hell out for a good portion of the drive... :( I may have gotten a little wet, but I wasn't going to be deterred today...

    Okay, so I've started working on my Bolens HT23 Repower... planning to put a Ruggerini RD200 2 cylinder air-cooled diesel in it. This is the same size block as the Ruggerini RD180 used in the Ariens GT18, though the Ariens runs the drive shaft off the fan side of the engine (like a Cub Cadet...

    I'm going to be swapping out a Kohler K582 with a daylight block for a Ruggerini RD200 2 cylinder diesel in my Bolens HT23. Unfortunately, the Ruggerini has the SAE J6209 short taper stub shaft on the output end, and there's no factory adapter for it. However, I've found someone to make an...

    Well, I had an interesting thing happen to me Saturday, but a little background first... Three years ago I bought a Bolens HT23 with a Brantly FEL, homemade rear blade and tiller. I used the FEL for moving snow in the winter and sod and dirt in the summer... the shuttle pedal was so natural to...

    Hi all. I put a Johnson Workhorse loader on my HT20D. It doesn't have room to run a belt out to the side like you do on the gas powered large frames. Using the pictures from Bob's Lawn & Garden Tractors' post called "HT20D now has a backhoe and loader" (and with some helpful advice from...

    Just bought this; I bought two large frames last summer. And, after getting my HT 23 going, I needed parts for my HT 20. When I saw the ad on C/L I just about bought this site unseen! ( it was cheap!) Now, the problem is, this is too good to be a parts machine. Aside from that fine patina...

    How she looked when I found her. Sitting since 1980's.
  13. Bolens Tractor Forum
    I'm a bit confused, so can someone set me straight? With all the threads mentioning things like "large frame", where does the DuraTrac line fit? Or is that an " apple to oranges" thing?

    So, I agreed to a deal to buy a couple of HT 23's today. Both need engine work. But, I'm getting them cheap enough. And, I'm getting a bunch of extras as well. I'm new to Bolens. But I think the large frame may be the best out there for the money. I have a Jacobsen with a good running 20 horse...

    Hey guys ! Now that I have my Sundstrand Hydro repaired and working good, I feel it is time to bring the motor up-to-date !!! I found a nice little Kubota D662-e, triple diesel engine, that might be a good canditate to be dropped in there... Does any of you have advices on fitment or...
  17. Bolens Tractor Forum
    Hi all! I'm looking at a nice Bolens HT23 with Johnson 14 FEL, rear tiller and hydraulic plow. Tractor looks to be in great shape. Seller has the original front wheels / tires. He says the tractor runs and drives and operates very well. He says it does not have an electric PTO nor a 3 pt hitch...

    Hi folks, I recently acquired this Bolens 1455. As you can see, there's just a hint of rust to take care of :D, but I'll get to that eventually. It gets to live in my shop so it shouldn't get any worse. My main concern right now is that the hydrostatic drive pedal sticks. Wherever you...
