If it runs and everything works, that is a good deal. Its an Iseki, I think. If you get it, you won't want to part with it. That is less than 1/2 of what they run around here. Good Luck, Rick
 
BTW its bigger than a JD GT.

That is not a Bolens, but I Think Iseki built both the Bolens & White (and Massey Fergusons) so they are probably very simular.  Maybe the same tractor with labeling different?  BTW you would be amazed at the work those little guys will do!

What your looking at is a White Field Boss. And if there are no serious flaws in the mechanicals like Boyscout said $1,000 is a real good price.  I would not mind having a smaller unit than my Ford 1500 around myself. And always thought the White Field Boss was a nice looking tractor.

Here are the spec's on that model. http://www.tractorda...ld-boss-16.html

 

Since White, Oliver, Minneapolis Moline, Massey Ferguson  & Simplicity ( and a host of other brands) were all taken over by Agco. I would suspect parts would be available through an Agco dealer.

And Here is what it should look like all shined up.

It's a really good deal if everything works.  All are correct that Iseki is the root company behind these.  They made Bolens compact diesels.  I've never seen one in the Field Boss labeling, but it's an Iseki.

 

It's a smaller compact tractor.  They are really well made.  Good luck and let us know if you look at it.

That seems almost too good to be true! Around here that would go for way more than that. With a loader and 4wd  the Bolens compacts are still going for 4000 and up depending on size and condition.

Masseys were built by Hinomoto, but I wouldn't be surprised if that company linked back to Iseki.  $1000 if in good running shape isn't bad at all!
