I don't know what to tell you, what would I do with it-I really don't know for I would have to give it away.

If that is what you wanted then I am happy for you that you got it,

I'll be using it to move around attachments.  Getting any new stuff out of the bed of the truck...stuff like that.

 

Rasselin around a large frame square back tiller by yourself isn't exactly the easiest thing in the world.

Congrats on the attachment!

 

Looks like she's had a tough life by the looks of it. Was it stored outside?

 

Hood looks off a different model tractor judging by those decals...

Yeah, I think that they used it pretty much every day for 30 years or more, and it probably spent most of it's life outside.

 

I think that they re-painted it at some point and just tossed on what decals they had handy.  I know that those decals on the hood from a later model Bolens, as are the green and white ones on the fender.

 

I can also see some red over spray on the caps of the front hydraulic outlets.

<p>The first order of business will be putting new tires on all the way around, then getting the engine running, and then getting the tractor moving under it's own power.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>At this point I'm thinking of putting a pair or Deestone D408's on the rear. They are 8-ply and have a nice high load rating. Not sure about the fronts yet. The tires on it are REALLY small. They are 5.90 x 8's and that just seems way too small. But then, it's been like that for who knows how many years, so I guess they were 'good enough'.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>If I can find some wide rim 8" wheels, I'd like to put a pair of V61's on front. Barring that, I'll try to find the 10" fronts, and put a pair of 20-8-10 's on it like my other 1886 has.</p>



I'd be doing the opposite with the front tires, that is unless you need to have the high floatation type tires.
Skinner tires will make it steer easier empty, and more so when your carrying a load.
A friend of mine put 6 or 8 ply trailer tires on his HT 20 with loader and it steers so much easier then it did with the wide tires. I plan on doing that with my HT 23 with the loader on it sooner or later.

JMHO

Good luck with it, and what a great find.

I'll be using it on dirt/grass and it gets pretty soft in places, so I need the flotation.

 

I'm having second thoughts about my tire/wheel selection though.

 

I'm now thinking of staying with the stock axles, and trying to find a set of the 10" wheels like the ones on my 1886 with the FEL.

 

It has 20-8-10 tires and the extra 2" diameter would give me some much needed ground clearance.  I'm also thinking of going with 28" rear tires as well, if they will fit.  That would give me an extra 1" of ground clearance, and with that subframe under the tractor, even 1" will make a heck of a difference.

 

This rascal has power steering so going to the wider front is not a problem.
