PostSubject: I've been gone for awhile now.    Wed Oct 26, 2016 10:56 pm

Hello Y'all, I used to be somewhat active on this forum awhile ago. I got rid of all of my tractors because I gew out of them and ended up getting into bigger and more expensive projects like my K5 blazer.



I actually recently purchased a Bolens Husky 800 for $100 and that is what brought me back to this forum. I have some room in the garage to work on it this winter so I plan on tearing it down repainting it and either leaving it stock or look into putting a bigger engine on it for a race mower setup. lol!

I'm not set on what I plan on doing with this mower, It currently RUNs but does not drive and I haven't had a chance to get out in the garage to take a look.

Be sure to make a build thread on that thing. Bolens frames are neat and super beef.

Will be making a build thread once I finish up my current project and get the bolens into the garage. Thats why I bought this tractor It's not your ordinary riding mower.
