All the Bolens mowers are, is rebadged MTD Yard Machines mowers. It's a shame that MTD had to ruin a good name like Bolens by putting it on their pieces of equipment. I would say that the uneducated buyer thinks they are buying a good machine when they see "Bolens" on the side.

Ditto, You'll see many Bolens being used by 'professionals' but they're really built to be a home owner machine.
