You are buying everything in pictures and then some.I could only list 8 pictures so there is some stuff not shown.All are early 70's Bolens 1886 Large Frame tractors with Kohler 18 HP twin engines.Hydrostatic.Full hydraulic lift with Aux Hydro ports front and rear.First 2 tractors in the first 2 pictures are runners/workers.The one with the tiller is my best and it truely runs works great.Has new AG tires on rear with bolens wheel weights and fairly new tires on front.Tiller works great.This tractor needs a battery.The other one runs good and supposedly was recently rebuilt.It has mis mached rear tires.1 is new,other is original and splitting.This tractor could also use a battery.Now the rest of the tractors are all non running but complet.When I say complete,I mean if it looks like it is missing,I should have it in the pile of parts shown,Minus a couple seats and exhausts.1 tractor has all new tires.Other 2 have decent tires that hold air.Next you will see there is a very nice Haban sickle mower.This is complete with guard.There are also 2 more tillers shown.1 has the extension kit.That is a total of 3 tillers and I have the drivshafts for all 3.Moving on,there is a total of 6 54" decks.2 are usable the way they sit,3 need various work like spindle bearing,idler bearing,etc.1 is just a shell in real nice shape.Going back to the first couple pictures you will see there is also a 54" 4 way hydraulic blade and a homade weight carrier.Last picture is the pile of parts I was talking about.Way too numerous to get into.Look at pictures.Lastly,not shown but included is a single stage snowblower,an engine block (not complete)atleast 3 sets of chains,3 sets of wheel weight (2 sets are Bolens Brand that look like the ones on the tractor in first picture).I am also include years of collecting manuals.I would say an easy 50-75 manuals,pamphlets etc.Its been fun playing with these old tractors but just a little easier for me useing the modern diesel compacts.Theres alot of stuff here.Your going to need more than just 1 pick-up and trailer thats for sure.I'm sure I am forgetting stuff but will add it as I find it/remember it.Also I will not seperate anything here.Its all or nothing so please don't even ask.

Yeah, he just listed that collection on eBay as well.

Too bad he won't separate. I'd like to get a Sickle-Mo for the large Frames.

I wouldn't let that stop you. Maybe OB would consider an assist if you could part with...say...a sickle mow for a large frame...? Just thinking out loud here...
