    Service manual gtx 16

    Does anyone know if there is a service manual for a 1996 Troy-bilt GTX 16? Not the owners manual but an actual service repair manual. What model Bolens would I look for if I needed to go that route...Bolens durotrac?
    Thanks. Trying to learn this machine...

    Yep Durotrac is the way to go .
    Think it is the same one 16Hp to 20Hp.
    The Bloens owners web forum has a download link for it if Google does not do it for you.

    Can anyone direct me to the Bolens Service manual? I've looked and looked and can't find it.

    Your Troy-Bilt is an MTD product ( along with many others) if you post more relevant info, (see example)
    ie. (Troy-Bilt Pony, or Bronco etc. ) try looking under the seat, for a label, engine info. should be on the engine itself .

    MTD used to have manuals on THEIR site, but recently let a third party take that segment over, still some guys may have the info. you're needing, or a link to where to get it.

    This tractor was made before MTD took over...they were made by Garden Way who I believe also built Bolens at the time, but I get your point for the search. I know all of the info about my tractor, I am just not sure where to find it. Although I think I just found it under the heading, "Product Guide". Thanks...

    Re: Service manual gtx 16

    You should find it here http://www.mytractorforum.com/305-bo...actor-manuals/.
    There are 3 pages of Bolens manuals.
    Otherwise sign up to My Tractor Forum and do a search there.
    The Durotrac was really a sub-compact tractor rather than a lawn mower.
    I service one and was sold on it the very first time I touched it.
    Down side is they run real transmissions and Eatons stopped servicing them decades ago so parts can be a problem.
    If that does not do it for you try searching with this "78590-Bolens_5100_Series_Duratrac_Tractors_Service_Repai r_Workshop_Manual_Model_5117h_Dgt1700_5118h_Gt1800 _5120h_Gt2000.pdf"
    That brought up a dozen or so likley prospects.
    Also GT Forum has a large Bolens manuals section http://gardentractortalk.com/forums/index.php?app=core&module=search&do=search&andor_t ype=&sid=e7dc400351ebd575cd0a44529ce1ed14&search_a pp_filters[downloads][searchInKey]=files&search_app_filters[downloads][files][sortKey]=date&search_term=bolens&search_app=downloads&st=5 0
