That 800 Is Awesome Looking. The original paint is in good shape for its age IMO...... What a nice addition to your Bolens Fleet :bounce:


BTW.. Thats a 1963 Model

I really like the decals on the hood of these tractors. I think im going to restore this round fender instead of the 600 or 900 we have. The hood is in rough shape, but I want to test my skills and see what I can do with it. Dont be looking for the finished project for a long time, the 1250 needs to be done first.

That's a very nice original piece! It looks great for it's age and seems to be very complete. It will need some TLC, but that's what we do here! Nice score!

Yes I have always liked those unique Decals on the 63' 800's..... Take measuremets before you take the decals off... Likely you will have to get these Custom made by someone. Currently no one has this kind for sale

I cant stop staring at the pics.... I got a soft spot for these "round hood" Models LOL

Nice little bolens. U never mentioned that you had a trailer and a hitch for your car, only a conversion van.

Adam's busy snowblowing the backyard, so I will answer this. :rolling:

After picking up tractors with the van and car trailer, he decided a smaller trailer and a hitch on his car would be more realistic. Plus the van is parked for winter, so if he didn't get a hitch on his car, he wouldn't be able to add so many tractors to his collection over winter! The horror! (:

This 800 was originally in a box van, so it explains some of its character and condition. Better than sitting outside for years.

Well, at least he learned how to save some hassle. Now I'd like to know what he needs to snowblow the backyard for. :?
