 should I buy a Bolens

I am considering buying a G212 Bolens with only 200 hrs ; it feels and sounds new, and the price is rigth, but I am concerned that I won't be able to service it. Is it easy to find parts? Does anybody know if the same model has been sold under another brand, like White or Massey? Or should I stick to a manufacturer that is in business now?Thank you,Miguel

 should I buy a Bolens

Miquel,I own a Bolens G214 which is a 4 wheel drive,22 horse,3cylinder deisel that is made by Iseki in 1986.It's identical to the same vintage White Field Boss 21 which is supported,parts-wise, by AGCO. I wonder if the G212 is the 2 wheel drive version. Garden-Way (Troy Built) brought out Bolens several years ago and also supports it, at least 4 years ago. Garden Way insists you go through thier dealers for parts and generally was a pain in the butt to deal with. Four years ago a water pump was $235 new.
The motor is made by Izusu and is the easiest starting smoothest running deisel small motor I've ever owned. The G214 is a gear transmission,with a creeper range that gives me 4 reverses and 12 forward speeds. It's equipted with an american heavy- duty loader with a rounded back on the bucket that make it a great grader with backing up.It has a back hoe,canadian made, with heavy undercarriage rails that is a honey. It runs off a PTO hyraulic pump. In 1989 I brought it for $8400 with an underbelly mower,3 point hitch gear and a factory kit for a front live electric PTO that I never installed since I leave the loader on. It only had 275 hours on it when I brought it; now it has 1200 hrs.I wish it had power steering-the next size up did. If the G212 is the 2 wheel version without a loader it would be less critical
I'd sell the front PTO kit and I think the mid-mount is available and never used (I traded it on a rear horizontal mower and the dealer was going to try to modify it as a front mounted mower but never got around to it)

All things considered this has been a great tractor for me and I'm impressed with Iseki.
