On the Bolens Estate Keeper, you sit up front for a clear unobstructed
view of where you're mowing. Result: you can accurately nose the
front-mounted mower attachment under shrubs and to within a fraction
of an inch of wall,, drives and trees to eliminate hand trimming.
With the snow caster attachtment, you follow winding wall, and
drives clear snow close to buildings and fences. Then, to take
full advantage of the upfront view, the Estate Keeper has Bolens
exclusive center pivot steering and a 21" turning radius for quickness
and maneuverability no
move toss together like a hinge with the tractor wheels forming
an arc or part of a circle.The more you turn, the smaller the
circle. With center-pivot steering you actually steer the attachment;
aim it where you want to go. Front
wheels, track rear wheels exactly-no shorts cutting on turns.
Center-pivot steering gives the Estate Keeper a tiny turning radius
(21") not possible with conventional steering. And because the
Estate Keeper flexes vertically as well as horizontally it follows
ground contours, smooth, even mowing-without a trace of scalping.
Powered attachments on a Bolens Estate Keeper are driven by a
drive shaft instead of a belt. Hitching up an attachment on most
other compact tractors means lining up the belt, then pulling
and straining to stretch it over a pulley or sheave. With the
Bolens Estate Keeper, hitching up a powered attachment is simply
a matter of sliding the attachment drive shaft onto the Bolens
Power-lock and securing the attachment to the tractor with a few
hitch pins.Changing attachments takes only a few minutes and no
tools are required.
