The serial number belongs to a 1962 model 600. I don't know if Bolens made a 650, I never heard of one.
AWESOME bone yard!!!!

That serial number plate doesn't look Bolens,I don't mean the number,I mean the plate itself. Brian should be able to tell you.

The plate is definitely not original. That is only the last couple of numbers of the serial, mainly used on variation changes I believe. I don't know enough about the Bolens but I am sure the doc or someone else will be able to tell you for sure.

It does look like a 600 though.

Its definitely a Bolens Husky 600
The Id Tag is not original, but the model# is correct 180-02 That means that it is a 1963 model

The Guy must have wanted it to be a 650 LOL

well if the price is right i will get both but that 900 is in good shape besides the surface rust, nothing is froze up or anything. are those old style wheel weights for the 900 or like a ride-a-matic

Those older style weights were used on the ride-a-matics and Tubeframes up until 1965 I believe. Then they began using the weights with "Bolens" printed in them in 1966 and up

So those weights would be correct on both the 600 and 900 your looking at.

Atleast you can find SOME stuff.The only tractors or implements I can find are 850-1050s G10-G14s,tube frame tillers and blowers.And a 600 and 900 that are to far gone to save.
Not a single large frame tractor or implement within 40 miles of me that I'm aware of,other than the 1250 that I lucked onto.
