Well, The 600 I have been waiting for is finally in my Garage :thumbs::rocker2:
I saw an ad on CL for a Bolens 600,800,1000 and then called yesterday to see If I could look at them. The guy wanted $350 for them. I think I did pretty well.
I also hit a possum on the way home with the trailer LOL

The 600 is complete and comes with 2 32'' Decks
The 800 is in pieces but complete (minus engine)
The 1000 is rough and will be for parts.
I also got some misc parts including an engine pulley and 2 more PTO assembly's

I will get better pics when its light out.


The 1000

The 800 (1963) This was taken appart for restoration but the guy had too many other projects going on and needed to sell. I probably will keep the 800 as is because its in great shape with all original paint.

Wonderful find Brian. The 600 looks great. I am looking forward to your future posts on your newest addition. I am having trouble finding just one tractor and you were able to round up a herd at a very good price. Good things do happen to good people.

With all this talk of possum I had to add this link. I heard it while running to North Carolina and had to listen real close to know that they were actually talking about running over a possum. Hope the link works. YouTube - 5 Pounds of Possum In My Headlights Tonight I really like the first clip because it is a group of folks at an old store just getting together for a little picking.
