I've said I might have to try a Bolens in past. I prefer looks of newer plastic hooded ones, Late 70's and 80's I'm thinking. Was snooping around epay and came accross a 1400 Eliminator for $350 at moment. Looks like nice shape too. Not having heard you guy's talk about Eliminator much, guessed maybe is a YT type rig? Still looks plenty heavy. THEN, another Elim, pops up an 1800 hydro, with foot control, which is what I would want. I really think they look nice and could go for one of those models. SO, what is it......YT or GT? I'm thinking mowing and maybe snow blade use and think they would be fine. The 1800 was more money, at $850 for moment. Are they worth that?
