WOW nice my friend has one similar to this so i send him with my business card and his friend calls me the next day he sayed that he had a whole bunch of stuff and he kep saying a coupple hundred dollars he had 5 or so tractors but only 2 were bolens so i asked what models he sayed 1256 and 1453 and he sayed there is a snow blower and a blade mower and a cultivator so i when to day to pick it all up well he had a 1256 and a broken spindled 1453 wicth the front axle is from the 1256 becuse its beigh not black and the one on the 1256 is black so back onto what he had 1256,1453,2 42 mowers ,38'' snow blower , 42 push blade, cast weights and a roto tiller .. not a cultivator its missing a drive shaft but its no big deal also he thru in a BRANDNEW set of belts i had $300 and i asked what he wanted and he said $200 but thats a smoking deal ... but i forgot one of the tires so after a hour total driving then 1/2 on the boat it was worth it here is some picks ENJOY
