what ever you do dont buy a ********
Okay, I'll cross that line off my list.
Lame pointless response.
Noted.keep in mind that nothing in this price range can reasonably be expected to last 28 years like your previous machine! you would be lucky to get half that, more than likely less than 1/3.

I've got a question you can add to this list -But the older Bolens and their proud heritage is diminished by the new Bolens tractors sold at places like Lowes. Just as a joke I asked the sales guy at Lowes if:
1. "can mount a front end loader on on the 15.5HP model they had on the floor? he chuckled and said "No".
2. can I put a rear tiller on it? "no".
3. how about a larger mower deck "no"
4. does it have a real frame? "no"
5. does it have a cast iron transmission case?, "no"
he was getting frustrated so finally I asked him an easy one
6. does it come with a cup holder "yes.
i believe the "shift on the go" is similiar to what's on my honda - basically when you move the shift lever, it auto-mechanically dis-engages the clutch, then when you've selected your next gear, it releases the clutch - mine has a dampner (like a small shock absorber basically) that controls how fast the clutch re-engages - wish my last car had had something like that for my wife's sake.Okay, I'll cross that line off my list.
Speaking of Bolen, also saw a 13AM762F765 for $950. It's not a hydro, but boasts something called "shift on the go". What is that? A fancy way of saying "manual"?
