Hi, 

 I've been visiting this site for a long time, but I'm just now posting.

I recently bought a Bolens 1600H for $850 with a 48" mower, tiller, snow blower and soft cab, plus an extra pto clutch. I haven't seen a lot about this model, most people seem to like the large frame models.

Here it is with the tiller.

Welcome to GTTalk! I've seen a few of those for sale locally. They look like a nice sturdy tractor. Sounds like you got a nice deal with all those attachments.

Thanks! It's definitely sturdy. It was burning some oil when I first got it, but a local kid rebuilt the engine and did a good job so now it has the power to cut through to 3' of grass and weeds I have around back.

Those medium frame tractors are really well built. I own two of the 1669s models. They have the Vanguard Vee twin in them and are nice machines. Those tractors all have the eaton 12 hydrostatic which is solid as a rock. They put them into the 23HP HT23 tractors that can weigh over 2k so these 1600 tractors are well built. Have fun.
