No that's a different tractor a st### something so I was told from the 80s. There is not a 1886 up there.

Adam the guy I got the 1886 from who is a member here said that a guy he knows who used to work at bolens I think in the 80s as a maintenance man use it to get to stuff on the top of the factory. Being a big flat roof I bet it was nice to have a ride to the other side.
The same guy now works for the company in the south bolens plant and had to go up to the roof to see if the tractor is still there and I guess it is.
