The 800 had Wisconsin engines.  The 7.25 horse S-7D in 1963 and then an 8.25 horse S-8D in 1964 and 65.

 

The 600 had a Briggs, but it was a 6 horse.

Haha...what'd I tell you...multiplication is starting...you have the bug.

7 hp B&S would be the 800. Here's a site for year/models: http://sonnys_bolens...dentifythis.htm

 

Just so you know not all the info on sonnys site is accurate.

The 800 Used Wisconsin Engines

I read it wrong so completely my bad. 7 hp would be the 800, but a Wisconsin, not the B&S. I should have read it more carefully...

How do those little tractors do anyway? I still have my eye on a 600 near by that I would like to make my sons first project.

They have pretty much the same capabilities as their predecessors in the 70's but the big difference is horsepower

With the 600/800/900 your working with 32'' Decks & Blowers instead of the 42'' on the later tubeframes

watch out man they will breed you out of space and time , you get more than two in the same shed and noone knows what happens when the lights go out but magically more seem to appear every so often :smilewink: or at least thats my experience . although i worry about the speedex's hybredizing being so close to my bolens' :D

Happy new year to all

I think alot of the fun with anything vintage is the hunt for the machine, parts and knowledge. To hear something fire that's 40 years old and neglected for 10 is pretty cool!
