My name is Brad Zevenbergen - and I've got the Bolens itch! I picked up a Bolens 1053 this weekend with a snow caster, tiller, deck and a perfect condition cab! I purchased it from the original owners and this thing looks like new! The tiller was used ONE time! I'm sure I'll have questions along the way so I wanted to join the forum! Would love to add original hydraulic lift, headlights, a rear plow, and many other attachments along the way!

Here is a quick video of the 1053 blowing snow on Saturday.

Have a great day!

Just a quick thought after watching your video....
It sounds like you may need to adjust your carb setting. It is either running too rich or too lean. Once you get that set the engine will run a lot smoother

:wave: bazeven welcome to GTTalk! That's a great looking Bolens you found. I'll bet there's a few of the guys on here who are jealous of the cab (like me LOL)! Hope that you enjoy the forum and all that it has to offer!
