Buddy picked this up at auction. Needs TLC but runs great. Couldn't find model number anywhere. I now look to higher authorities for advice. Thanks in advance.

Oh people!  Thats so easy.

 

Its one of those Bolens from government experiments in 1973 testing camouflage/invisible technology. 

 

Hope its 100% complete!  It can be so hard to tell if you left some of it behind at the auction site.  :wave:

 

Also!  Keep it tarped unless its actually being used.  Some of that technology hasn't been declassified and you wouldn't want the neighbors getting an eye full.  Espionage pays well and could tempt even the most patriotic neighbor.

I would guess G_XL or G_X1.  The blank can be filled in with engine horse power.  Lift lever on the right leads me to think X1.

 

Love the responses!  LMAO.  Paul

The ID tag should be under the seat on top of the fender pan.

I looked all over for the tag. It must have fallen off at some point. There is a lot of owner inflicted maintenance opportunities on this thing. I also have no idea on engine size but its a smallish looking Tecumseh gas engine

Horizontal shaft. Belt driven electric pto. Has 4 speeds an reverse. Interestingly 1st and 2nd gear are in the same shifting slot. There is a metal flap that you can use to prevent the shifter from going into 1st.

I had an 18HP single cylinder Tech  it was an XL series tractor and had that same shifter  slot. Yours does seem like it would be an XL series. There are some good manuals and service manuals in our manuals section on these tractors.
