Congrats on the new Bolens :dancingbanana:


You better separate the 1050 and the GK... They may start a fight as to who's going to get to clear the snow!

thanks for all the replys. heres a few pics of the tractor, 72in mower deck an 48in 2 stage blower. the blower is almost as big as the whole bolens estate keeper thats parked next to it in my garage. im oiling the chains an checking everything over on the blower so i can use it if we get anymore snow, i cant wait to see it in action. the tractor had been sitting for a while an 1 of the intake valves was stuck so i changed the oil an put in some sea foam with fresh oil. i also poured some down in the spark plug holes so it will get on that stick valve an get in the rings. also got all the old gas out an put some fresh 93 octaine with some sea foam. fired it up as it warmed up the valve loosened up so then as it was running it poured the sea foam in the intake so that valve sould get nice an free. i always liked running my estate keeper for mowing my grass because it articulates. well the grounds keeper is just like it but 6 times bigger lol an its jus an amazing machine to operate. cant wait to paint it an get the new tires, weights an decals on it. also get the seat redone. im goin to put 26-12.00x12 back on it. got the rims just need to get the tires. Just a sugestion if you ever wanted to get one of these an you get the chance to buy one GET IT because you will kick urself if you dont. there just alsome. nothing comes close to this in garden tractors
:love:
