I purchased a Bolens 5017H recently and am in the process of restoring it. I am retired Robot Engineer, specialized in automotive painting robots. I am a cancer survivor (Thyroid) although it has left me disabled (damaged vertebrea), but I still push through the pain to work on my home and my cars and now the tractor. I refuse to stop moving for fear of stopping moving permanately. Looking forward to advise along the retoration process.

Welcome to MTF. Those are great tractors. I had one for a while ( sold it because I wasn't using it enough). There is a ton of knowledge on this forum, and the people here can help you with just about any issue you have during your resto.

Good luck and :wwp: of your tractor!

Nice pics. There is a feature that allows you to post them right here on the forum. Just go all the way to the bottom of the reply page to find it.
