    Well.. the Bolens gods have finally blessed me. I posted an ad looking for one of these hydraulic lift pumps for my tube frame (g-14) and got a message from a guy stating that he had a pump and I could have it for free…. Yes.. FREE!! my favourite 4 letter F word. Turns out it ended up being a...

    Hey Guys, I have for sale 2 Bolens Tube Frame Sleeve hitches that I made. Made one for me and an extra one to sale but then the governor on my 1050 gave out so now both are for sale. Paint leaves much to be desired (Thought I was a master spray paint painter, thought wrong lol) but the pieces...

    My Bolens 1000 with a 10hp Briggs Engine, My father owned this tractor since I was probably 2 years old, bought it off his boss in the late 80s. This is what started it all! I learned everything on this thing. This tractor started the Bolens addiction I have haha

    Started cutting grass late yesterday afternoon as they were calling for rain overnight - it had been quite hot during the day or I would have started sooner. Got about 5 minutes of run time and noticed that a broken belt was showing sticking out the left side of the tractor. Stopped and...

    I promised to post this for someone but, I forgot who. When I bought a 1050 with 7 attachments several weeks ago, I found that it had a new in the envelope, spring assist kit. Someone(I plead old timers) asked...

    I don't know if this is ok, but I listed my Bolens 1256 in the classified section to sell. Refer to that ad for details or PM me. If this is not allowed, please delete. Don't want to break the rules. Barry

    It was a nice sunny day here in Ct., and I reserved today to work on my stuff instead of everyone else's. 54 degrees today. I dug out the sno caster from the garden trailer and brought it out to the driveway to install. I removed the mower deck and put the blower on. Still have to get 2 pins for...

    Hello All, It's been some time since I've checked in here as over the last couple years I've just been happily moving along yard project to project. I'm back on here poking around hoping to find some much needed guidance for a drive train issue. What do you think I should look at for this...

    I have just gotten a Bolens tube frame. Shows model # 1456, which I understand is better known as an H14. Correct? The Tecumsa motor says SBH 2958 (or 295B?) serial # 1141E. I think this is the original. I'd like to find a manual for this engine but that number doesn't get me any where...

    I was going to re center my steering wheel on my 1256 today, and broke the center emblem on it. Never did get the wheel off, so I will live with it crooked. I'm looking for one NOS or used if anyone knows of or has one they'd part with, please let me know. Send me a PM . Thanks, Barry

    I've looked around under the manuals section, but did not find any charts that say what attachments will fit what tube frames. So, I will ask the experts. I have the chance to get a mower deck and snow caster that is off a model 850. Can they be used on a 1256? Thanks

    So, I finally finished my Bolens snow plow rebuild. Using a phrase that my wife says is my unofficial motto, it took longer than I thought it would. This rebuild was necessary because I broke (tore) the mounting brackets when I hit a piece of sidewalk concrete that had been heaved up by a...

    I'm in the process of acquiring a Sweepster C-48. It looks like it may have originally been configured for a Wheel Horse. (will provide pics once it makes it way to my local Fastenal) I'd be grateful if any of you can provide some pictures and dimensions of how one of these units was...

    Bolens 1000, aka "Doc" had been working on putting an article together on the Bolens tube frame tractors for a while now. After a little poking and prodding by me he has it finished. :D I want to thank Brian for taking the time to put something together like this. It is definitely time...

    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?
