He's riding his Bolens 1250 high wheel with ARK loader he just snagged at a local auction a couple of weeks ago in Galesburg Illinois for an unbeleivably low $650...

He asked me if he did ok paying what he did, Though I'm sure he knew he did good. I told him its likely worth 2 grand without doing a thing to it. Probably alot more advertized in the right circles. I told him if anyone offered less I'd personally tell them to get lost and quit wasting my time if I were him:D

He's been using a D-15 Diesel AC with a freeman box frame trip loader to move his Allis Garden tractor stuff around for years. The Bolens I told him, may be easier to use for all that. Give it a try for a while and see what ya think I said. If it works good for him he's going to sell the D-15 and another D-17 off to someone who has been after them for a while. I'm tickled he got this so reasonable, and hope it works well for him. He used to be one of those out of your house AC lawn & garden dealers back in the 60's. I thinmk he logged in here at the club under the name of B-10man once or twice on a public computer just to see what was going on here with all I had been telling him. Just thought I'd share....;)
