It's a very rare (in the States at least) Bolens HDT1000 that was supposed to have been for export only.
I've only seen one other posted about and that was over on the MTF forum.
The interesting thing is that he found his in the Des Moines area as well.
Turns out that my tractor actually has a/the dealer tag on it.
Would anyone know if this dealer is still in business. If so, I might be able to get a little more history as to how it got sold here in the States.
Here's a pic of the tag:
