How Bolens Lawn & Garden Tractors Got Started

Founded in 1850, Bolens has grown to become the most respected name in outdoor power equipment. Milestones in the Bolens heritage include the introduction, in 1919, of the first power-driven garden tractor. Thousands of these early machines were sold to enthusiastic customers, and Bolens outdoor power equipment was on its way to becoming famous.

Immediately following World War II, Bolens was acquired by FMC Corportation, and specialization continued in production of outdoor equipment. A progressive engineering program was begun and new designs met growing new damns as Americans in increasing numbers discovered Bolens power equipment as a means of reducing the time and effort required for yard care. In 1947, Bolens introduced the first compact tractor. The first Bolens Husky tractor made its appearance in 1961 and set a new standard for all compact tractors. Bolens again startled the industry in 1963 with the introduction of the Estate Keeper-a unique and years-ahead concept in compact tractors. Each product bearing the Bolens trademark is back by this 116-year heritage ( documented in 1966 ) and by the extensive research and development facilities of FMC Corporation. Brooks Stevens, internationally known designer, is responsible for the external design of all Bolens products. Today, as in the past, the name Bolens stands for proven dependability, advanced design and the highest standard of quality.
