Nice find! I can only tell you it is in the 1969 and 1970 brochures listed as a 'Deluxe Cab' , of fiberglass construction. In the interchange sheets I have, all the cabs are only listed as 'cab'. They offered at least 8 different model number in the sheets and some of them are soft cabs. Is there a model number in it somewhere? Some examples of the Bolens model numbers for the cabs are: 18705, 18706, 18707, 18523, 18702, 18708, 18008, and 18700. It is real weird that you found this hard shell cab as dad and I, just today, were just looking at the brochures and talking about that windsheild wiper on it. Opps, had to edit this post as I just looked in the downloads section and found the 'Cozy Cab' brochure. It says it fits the 950/1050/1250. It was based on the model# and the year of the tractor for proper fit. It only had a 90 day warrenty, so your outta luck there. Can you still list the model# for me if it has one? I am just day dreaming of finding one I can afford in my lifetime.

Yes they made the cozy cab's to fit the tubeframe's as well. The "950" in that Brochure is a misprint and I believe it should be "850"

I blew the pics up a bit.There's some sort of garden tractor chassis under the cab.
The cab looks to be off of a Square hood tube frame tractor.
I don't see how the large hydro pedal on a large frame would fit inside that cab,so I would guess it to be off of a Tube frame.

Another set of 12x12 6 lug rims? lol


After looking around for Pics of a tube frame Cab and not finding a pic cozy cab,I found a thread with some pics of a large frame cozy cab.
http://gardentractor...b-refresh-4459/

It looks like the same shape as the cab your going after.
Either way,if you get it at a fair price it would be very nice to have.

It appears to be a Model BB-110 Dump-Cart made by Brinly Hardy for the tube-frame Bolens tractors. .......It could be mounted without removing the mower.

I have a brochure/parts list for this cart, and will post it soon.

I thought the dump cart was the neatest look thing when I first seen a pic of one. Way cool. Please Bruce, post the brochure/parts list for this cart. I'd like to see it. And also, thx for the pic.

The Cozy Cab brochure I have shows that cab on a 1476 Large Frame. The words on the brochure proclaim that they had hard cabs for Bolens 1054, 1254, 1256, 1476, and 1886. So clearly they did have hard cabs for the tubers, as well as the Large Frames.
