George and I mounted one of the snowblowers to the 1053 yesterday. This was after he figured out how to solve the drive shaft problem. After everything was done we decided to put the blower on the 800 and the plow on the 1053. With the hydraulics working on the 800 it did make more sense. So today with the tractors sitting side by side the change was super easy. It almost reminded of the video that Maynard posted about the Jiffy Crew. The tractors are ready, just waiting for snow.

You know that I'm computer challenged. I'll take pictures tomorrow but will have to wait for George to post them.

I did actually take the pictures yesterday but we spent some time in the garage last night because of some issues with the pickup. So they will finally be posted. Sorry for the wait.

Nice looking group of Bolens. I like the sign. We lost all 30 some inches of snow over the weekend. I wasn't sorry to see it go. We got about an inch today. Hope you get some soon.

George posted some pictures of the 1053 from the show at Fawn Grove. This was a labor of love on his part. Everything was taken apart,cleaned and then put back together. The one thing that we should have done is to have taken pictures from the very beginning,but at that time we were still learning. Will be posting some more pictures eventually.Thank you for your interest in this grand old machine.

My wife was sitting next to me on the couch watching TV as I caught up on this forum. She looked over at the computer as I was admiring your photos. She then put her hand on the keyboard and said "No. You are not buying another one. Just forget it."
Apparently she thinks I have a problem :smile1:
