this is what makes me mad... i owned this tractor 8 or 9 years ago it was a nice tractor kept inside since new i got it from the original owner. the seat was mint the mower deck was solid. my dad an i did a minor restoration on it. so after my grandfather retired his 850 i got it so i wanted a john deere 110, so my dads friend had one an it was rough but i was a stupid kid so i traded him the 850, deck and a (TF)front blade for the 1971 J.D 110 and $125.oo, that i later found out he found in the trash . well here we are now 2 weeks ago an i ran into the guy an i said "hey you still got that bolens" he says "yea but i havent used it in a while its in my back yard if you want it come look at it" so i go an i got sick when i seen it. it looked like he got from me parked it there and never touched it again it was sunk 1inch in the ground, steering rusted tight even the button to unlock the lift arm just about rusted away. so he owed me $50.00 for some corn so he gave me the 850 back. so i went there today with the 1050 w/loader on it an got it.. it could probly be all freed up and running again but im going to use the hi/low mech for my grand fathers 850 im pitting the CD-1 on and save what i can of whats left. i just cant beleave some people would have a beautiful tractor an let it turn into this.... and junked a perfect 38in mower deck.
