At present,I have a model 14 Bolens that I mow with,that's the AJ Foyt signature edition tractor from 1987,I have a Husky 900 that I use for moving snow,I have a snowcaster and a blade for that,it also has a sleeve hitch that I have a David Bradley plow set up to work with.I'm also working at restoring a 1940s Bolens model 12A that has an early model 700 Clinton engine on it,I have a front mounted reel mower for it also but I still need a couple of pulleys to finish it.
I have a 1976 1255 / G12, demoted to parts tractor. passed along by my father in law, it worked well for my needs, plowing and snowblowing, but it was actually in a fire 20 years ago, so the tractor is not complete and quite jerry rigged. I had it repowered with a 13hp honda clone.
recently bought a complete 1970 1253, non running. did some kijiji selling of 2 mower decks and the non running tecumseh it came with, and ended up ahead financially in the deal. currently swapping good parts onto the 1253 like the front axle/ steering head, rear axle, 13hp engine, etc. wasn't rusty, tins were in good shape, and like I said, complete and original...axles are a little loose though!
previous owner must have been a massey fan, he painted it red with a brush!?! some people's children...
I have 3 and they ae in my signature and I have 3 snow blades ( 2 are bolens blades and 1 is a built for my bolens) 1 for each and 2 mower decks one for the 1476 and 1 for the g-10 and I am looking for a larger horse power with a fel to add to the collection or a fel for the 1476 and put a 2 stage valve on it
