I've found a Bolens 1253 with a mower deck nearby. Not running - needs an ignition module. $200 but, I can't get the guy on the phone anymore. Found a MTD twelvehundred that has a mower and lift/draw bar for $250. Both look pretty rough but original. Which is the better tractor? Easier/cheaper to get parts for? Cuts grass, pulls a cart, plow, or lawn roller better.

Any thoughts on a Bolens 1468 or ST140?

Thanks,
Chuck

Go for the 1253 if at all possible. I have a list of Bolens parts suppliers that I can send you if you need it. I also have a lot of used parts myself. Don't t ouch the ST140, they are more or less lawn tractors with vertical engines. The 1468 is all right, I have never owned one, but I have heard that they are very solid. What is the max you can pay? I will keep an eye out and let you know if I see anything pop up in your area.

Even though I am a MTD guy I think the Bolens is the better choice.
