Bolens HT20 Production Runs 1973 To 1978

Bolens in 1973 launched the HT20 series tractor with yet
another power boast. Now it is fitted with a 19.5 hp
cast iron Kohler K532 Series engine.

This machine was just about to do extraordinary things, with
the optional new Backhoe attachment to compliment the
already available front end loader, Bolens now
had a fully commercial powerhouse in
the consumer buying market.

This series consisted of the HT18, HT20, HT23, HT23D (diesel).
The last year for this Bolens large frame garden tractor
series (HT23) was 1987. These big garden tractors
could power just about anything. What more
could anyone ask for?

Sadly after 1987 Bolens started to decline in the quality
stand point. They were bought out by Troy-Bilt and
then by MTD in 2001. Luckily, there are still
a lot of these 'Older Bolens' garden
tractors out there to this day.

Many people are now starting to collect and restore
these wonderful and powerfull garden tractors.
