well i went to a auction on saturday an bought a rough bolens 1000. it needs alot of work but its complete besides the pto, the engine turns over, the fiberglass fenders are in good shape, an it was goin to get bought buy a scraper so i had to save it. i only paid 35 bucks for it and i think they were only made 1 year. i always wanted one after my 63 600 got stolen from me. i will get some pics after i get it unloaded tomarrow. im goin to do a complete ground up restoration. i made a deal on a danuser cd1 posthole digger and its on a 1050 so im goin to use the parts from the 1050 on the 1000 and restore the posthole digger and the 1000 will be just for the digger because they are a pain to take on and off. when i get the digger i will post some pics. i forgot to grab the camers when i went to go look at it.:smile1:

Congrats on the posthole Digger and the 1000! :bounce:

Glad it was saved from the scrapper! What were the prices like on those other tubeframes that were lined up for auction?
Did you get the original seat with it too?



Looking forward to watching the restoration :D The 1000 is my favorite of the tubeframe's

I was at that auction also.Alot of them went for scrap.I think average price was $25 -$50 for majority of them.It was a shame to see those good parts machines go like that.

yea they all went for 25 to 50 for the most part. there was a 900 in ok shape that brought 80 but the guy that bought it is goin to save it. most of them were just junk. there was a 1250 with a dozer blade but i dont know what it went for. the 1000 i got has the same seat as a 1050 has but its on a hinge. is that what its supose to have? an i will have some pics of the tractor tomarrow. i met one of our members on here but forgot his name.

the posthole digger was not in the auction... it was a privte deal with tom. it wouldnt of brought as much at the auction as i had to pay witch was a ton. but i have never seen 1 for a tube frame anywhere so i figured it was a once in a life time chance so if i ever want to complete this collection i had to get it

The seat used on the 1000 was only used on that tractor.

Here's a picture
of what it should look like:

I think its actually a bit larger than the seat you would find on the 1050

My original seat is missing on my 1000 and that is one of the reasons why I'm holding off on the restoration, until I locate the original seat pan.
