A tip off from my mate Chris about a 600 for sale with a spare engine and another set of tyres got my pulse racing. The seller, fortunately for me, have misspelt the tractor hence why I got it for a very cheap price. I said a year ago that Bolens 600s are rare as hen's teeth in the UK which is why I bought one from the USA which is now docked at Southampton, U.K. which will be delivered sometime this week. It's strange that I bought two 600 in the UK within a few months of each other......

The seller of the U.K. one, bought it from a nursery in Honiton, Devon some 20 years ago with the intention of restoring it. It has sat in his barn in Berkshire since then. My good friend Chris got a friend, Mark, (he got more than one..) who lives a stone's throw from the seller and is happy to help me out with collecting it from the seller. Chris and I have agreed that he can have the spare B&S engine for his 600 project as he will at some collect it from Mark. At some point, Chris will deliver the 600 and my 850 down to Devon to collect his 600 that I collected for him a few months back.

It's great that the UK Bolens Boys are happy to help each other out and make this hobby more enjoyable with like minded individuals plus saving some hard earns dough too.

The US 600 will be delivered to me sometime this week so I will have two 600s in my collection by a quirk of fate.

Happy Days!

I got to admit Dave, I couldn't believe how little I paid for it. I think if Chris not bought the RAM the week before, he would have snapped it up. I would have never have seen it myself if Chris not tipped me off.

Yes Andrew if I had not have brought the RAM last week then I would have brought it. As as been said I will haul it over 200m to Devon when the time comes & when I have removed any usefull parts :D

You never know I will most prob have got it running by then. I seem to be fixing everybody elses machines ATM :shoot2:

Hopefully it will be recovered this week & stored until I can collect it
