Been a while since I was on last. I just picked up this 1886 fixer upper. It appears to be a 1886-01.

Glad to see someone got that tractor. I saw it on craigslist a while ago.

The trick now is to find parts for it..lol. I would love to restore it. Beyond that I'm hoping to sell the sickle mower and get a deck for it.

I would trade you a deck for the sickle bar...

Here's a pic of my 1886-02. BTW I acquired the machine looking like this. It is shown with my famous Sammy Bucket. The first bucket was replaced with a smaller one as shown.
I have visions of building a front end bucket loader with the old bucket, but still trying to find the time.

I saw that 1886-01 on Craigslist. I called the guy, bet did not really pursue it. Good luck with it! I have a spare deck if you are interested. 54", will slide right on that. I already have a sickle mower for my 1886 so not really interested in that.

20180314_085828.jpg One of my 1886's Hard at work in the Maine winter. Love this tractor and especially the cab. This is not an original Bolens cab. It was reworked to fit this tractor. I also have a push blade and the mower deck.

I know this is an old post but I am a new Bolens 1886 owner
Congrats on 1886 ownership, Kevin, nice machine and thanks for the photos!
