I had some time today so I dug out my first 1050, changed it's flat tire and fired it up. Since I had it out and running I decided to get the other two 1050's and take a group picture. Each one has it's own look different from the next  one lol.

Each develop a personality of their own through the years, each has it's own quirk.

Nice line up.

I built the stack on the left 1050 and about two months later I bought the center 1050 and it already had a stack on it.

Nice group of 1050's. Missing the 4th one for the pic. :rocker2:

 

I just hope I can one day be like you and have a few Bolens lined up for a pic, too.  :smilewink:

I don't think a pile of parts would be too exciting lol. The 4th one is a restoration project that I need to get back to working on.

That guy looks like it could push a fair bit of snow. :thumbs:

It needs a stack too.

The Tubeframes handle quite well in the snow. I have pushed some heavy water laden snow without much difficulty.

The 1050 is pretty much the same mechanically  as your G14 just smaller HP, Different Engine and Different Color :D
