I'm not sure when I'll take the plunge but I got to have one of these Bolens H16. I'm not a color man I just like GT. I know a great deal about MF & Cubs but very little about Bolens. How many years was this GT made? Is there a time period to stay away from? Was the Bolens & Husky comparable to MF & MTD? Is the later engine in the late 70's better than the Tec? Are all these tube frames? I know this is a lot of questions but what better place to ask than the guys who own them. Any other info will be appreciated & thanks.
