i was wondering what the true end of the line for bolens is. the bolens produced today is a mere shell of its former self. what was the last bolens garden tractor and when did production end? also what was the biggest bolens garden tractor produced? did they have a tractor that competed with tractors like the john deere 400 series and the cub cadet SGT? why are their no bolens garden tractors produced today? is it fear of competing against their self(mtd), not that it matter. in my opinion nothing produced by mtd is worth a hoot.
