The GTX Tractors were manufactured from 1996 to 2001. In
most garden tractor forums the Bolens by Troy-Bilt
GTX models are known as the Cadillac of all
Garden Tractors ever made.

They had power steering and cruise control. In 1999 a new
GTX 20 purchase price with optional equipment
cost over $10,000.

A little GTX backround history
In 1988, Bolens was purchased by GardenWay and then in
1993 GardenWay purchased Troy-Bilt. The GTX 16,18,
20 hp series Tractors where made in the Bolens
plant in Port Washington, WI.

The company manufactured very durable, sturdy equipment
but eventually in 2001 GardenWay Inc., filed for
bankruptcy and is no longer in business.

On Sept. 1, 2001 MTD Products Inc. out of Cleveland, Ohio
purchased most of the remaining assets under The
Troy-Bilt and Bolens names from the
bankruptcy court.

MTD began in 1932 and is a family-owned, privite company
that still produces the Troy-Bilt and Bolens
products today.
