Spent a day on the road this weekend to buy a couple QT-16s and some attachments. Got the whole load for about 30% of going rate-- gas included!

This stuff has all been stored inside. The tires have all been replaced in the not too distant past. The red one even has a nearly new set of rims and turf tires to switch with the ag's for winter. Both tractors have good mower decks. He even threw in a fresh set of blades. I also got some wheel weights, tire chains, a 42" snowthrower, 48" dozer blade, and a very nice dump cart. Paul

That's quite a haul..you may want to keep a eye on kijiji for bargains across the river,, the CDN dollar being beat up as much as it is.

I check craigs daily, but have never seen a Bolens in Soo, Ontario.

Not on craigslist, but on Kijiji they show up every now and again - they're usually more expensive than going rate in the U.S. Though.

There a lot more selection south of the border

That GT was built in the first QT16 production run back in 1973. Looks like a factory job, but can't be. What's really weird is that my first 16 is also red and I bought it not too far away from this one. It has an Onan B43M and no ID plate.

Me too! Whoever did that took the time to make it look like it came that way from the dealer.
I wonder if it was painted for a customer that way - I worked at a John Deere dealership in the 70's that sold some lawn tractors to a government owned utility and part of the deal was they had to be painted to match the utility's colours before they would accept delivery.
