I would call it Bruce. Why? Well you ever see a whimp named Bruce? Me neither. Besides it is upside down and Bruce Wayne is Batman.

From everything I can find it is just the 1900 (model1966).  No prefix, no suffix, no extra name, etc.

 

It's just another time when the Bolens "Department of Practical Jokes" got involved in naming one of their tractors.

 

It gets better too. The QT16 and QT17 both are called the model1666, but the -01 thru -05 are called the QT16, whilst the -06 thru 11 are the QT17. 

 

There was a 1900H but that was the model 5019H.

 

This is what I've gathered by looking through the Attachments Guide, a 1949-1994 Tractor Specs PDF that I have, and the 1987 Equipment Service Seminar manual.

 

 

It's a case where it SHOULD have been named the QT19, but just like the 1556 which SHOULD have been the H15,the DPJ decided otherwise. Then there is the G9 which is actually a 8Hp tractor in the nn55 series and SHOULD have been the G8 but for who knows what reason the G8 designation was used earlier for one of the small frames.

Well that was entertaining. Informative, and confusing! I just need to know what it is when ordering parts or Trying to see if a attachment will work. I do see on the Attachment cross sheet it's called the 1900

I would say 1900 or QT19 would be the proper name to give while ordering.

 

All the manuals describe it as the 1900 but most people call them QT19 (Atleast around here)
