have you gotten any 1050 model numbers with a "W" after the number? That was what my price book has for ones that were sold with white wall tires, I wonder if the ID tags really had them stamped like that.

The 1050 I purchased has white walls, I don't remember a "W" after it but I'll double check .

Brian:  Is that a Bolens factory price sheet, or was that the distributor's price sheet?

 

The distributor we purchased tube-frames from printed their own price sheets.

It was a dealer price sheet in Blue paper, it was actually Stull equipment in PA

At one time I had 4 G11 tractors.

 

I bought the 4th on the way to VA and traded it off for work on being done the HDT1000.

 

I didn't really look at the numbers, but I'm back down here and took at look at it today.

 

Here are the numbers on it :D

 

Model: 1055

 

SN:     0100475
