Some of you may remember when I bought my Bolens 853 back in July. Well the guy I bought it from said he thought he a had the manuals for it and two weeks ago he found them and gave them to me along with a few other Bolens Manuals too. One even has a serial number for a G11 in it.

Good find! :thumbs: Don't know if these manuals are in the manuals section, anyway to scan and submit them? May help a fellow member out. The manual section is one of the greatest assets of this site.

That is a really nice package. :thumbs: Great to have something that documents your particular tractor.

I would sure to see you scan that one page that appears to be instructions to the dealer. That has to be interesting reading.

Also, I wonder what happened to the G11?

He has owned a local OPE shop since about 1973 or so. The 853 was originally sold from his shop a couple years before he bought the shop. 8 months wasn't a bad wait, it took him over a year to get the 853 to his shop from his house lol. He still has a ton on Bolens manual at his house that he is going to bring down for me when he gets time. I think like 3 or 4 big boxs and maybe close to a 1000 individual manuals or more he said.

I will have to ask him if he nows what happened to the G11. If I get a chance to go home beforethe semester ends I will bring some of the stuff back to school with me and scan and upload it.

Thats cool you got the original manual.

Thats much better than my luck , when I bought my db suburban at auction...

The original owners manual and bill of sale were in a box of manuals. I bought the

suburban , they were running two auction rings, and the box with the manuals sold

while I was bidding on the suburban! I could not find the buyer of the box.

To put it mildly, I was a bit irritated.
