I just got back from picking up my first Bolens ,
I picked it up from a couple who have had it since it was new the bummer is that she sold the mower deck years ago because she said it was to hard to put the deck on when grass cutting season came around so she used it only for casting snow ,
They told me that it had not run for a year or 2 , so when I got her home I drained all the gas out of the tank refilled with fresh gas put the jump starter on her shot some carb cleaner and she fired right up :) .
Everything seems to work great the pto and transmission etc.
Its going to need a new battery and it looks like the shoot handle needs to be longer it interferes with the deck handle when it is fully down .
I was reading some members posts about a hydro system for the lifting of the caster is this something that is still available for the 1050 ?
Would rubbing compound take off the surface rust ?
Is there anything that I am going to definitely going to need for her ?
Thanks and sorry about all the questions a bit excited , I wish it was not raining right now or I would be out there degreasing the entire tractor :)
Thanks in advance ,
