    Re: Bolens 915 parts help

    Neither serial or model numbers are readable. I have tried every trick I know but still can not read them. I know this to be either a 915-02 or -3 because -01 does not have that type arm.

  6. Re: Are there any other vintage BOLENS Lawn Keeper owners here?

    Hi HoosierSam, I picked up the 915. I believe it's a 915-01 but can't tell for sure. The model & serial # lettering on the decal is extremely light (faded). I plan to take the seat support off in...

    Re: what model engine?

    I've heard that too. The more I read about Jacobsen the more impressed I become; This Jacobsen was one of the reel mowers I've wanted for a while.
