Welcome to the forum. Would you happen to have a picture of that one? Somehow it does not sound familiar. Is this a newer model?

I just found 3 Service seminar manuals on GardenWay/Bolens/Troybilt dated 1993, 1995 and 1996. I need to see what is in them yet, but, I hope they may help.

I'll unload soon. :fing32:

Garden Way became the parent company of Bolens and Troybilt.

The manuals I found are dealer reference manuals that cover many specs, paint colors, tires, engines, belts sizes and mounting directions, etc. Some covers back to the 40's/50's Bolens up to it's current year print.
Includes Iseki, mowers, walk behinds, chipper/shredders, mulchers, etc. A wealth of info.

Who should I direct this to to add to the sticky section for everyone to use?

:dunno:

The manuals can be gotten at MTD manuals. The 13113 is 14hp peerless vst 205 hydro.

here is the link for the parts manual put 13113 for model number and serial number you have. If you do not know your serial number just put in 10001.

http://manuals.mtdproducts.com/mtd/Public.do


I would think the 14 hp might not be a vanguard because the model 13113 was the entry model of that year. the 13114 was 16 hp. the 13115 was 18hp. The 13115 was also the Eaton 751 hydro.

The IPL does not list the engine options, like in some years. I know on model with B&S engine has a label right on top, for easy identification. Which you can get the engine manual at this link... http://www.briggsandstratton.com/us/en/support/manuals/engine

Those manuals above a great references. the 13113's manual date is 10/97.

I will say the 13113 model years are similiar to my ltx 13104; which is a few years newer. Cannot figure out the model number sequence. But they are in the same model STYLE and the operating manual should be similiar.............so at least for now use the link above...........but put in model number 13104 and serial number 10001 and download the Operators Manual.


Krsworld.......you are correct........there is a wealth of information in those models for decades of bolens tractors.

this link is closer to your model.............its a Troy-Bilt 14 hydro with a date of 2/17/98.

Same similar style..........and it had a 14 hp Vanguagd Single with same model peerless hydro. The model specifications are in the last couple of pages.

Not sure you will get this message being a guest to the forum. Are you looking for info on a Bolens Ride-O-Matic? Or is that a Ride Master that has the bicycle chain steering that looks like a trotters buggy?

NOT with the 13104. WITH the 13a145f063 (the model in the manual link)

But similar to many models. The 13104 is similar as well. In body style, same hydro. Weird though is that the 13104 is 2 inches longer wheelbase. And a few attachments are NOT for the 13a145f063.
