bid on a couple bolens today...one with a front end loader which was a 1254 and the other was a 900 that had a seized engine but had a rototiller. The 1254 went for around 725. and the 900 went for 85. the 1254 was out of my price range but and i stopped bidding on the 900 once it went past 60...it just wasnt worth more to me. I did get the engines and transmissions though that are pictured right in front of the loader... They are 3 Wisconsins S7D S8D TRA10D, and an old clinton engine. $28. for all 4 engines lol....then I bought the 2 transmissions there...each was $30. Also got a bucket full of Bolens parts for $17. and in the bucket was a driveshaft with some extra parts, a double pulley pto, deck brackets, exhaust bracket....kind of like one that would be on the g14's, and also a couple front bearing grease covers for the front wheels....also picked up 4 push mowers to fix up and sell...they were $22. for all 4. Great Auction, but I will never go again if it rains because I got stuck in the mud once.....thanks to the amish boys that helped me out LOL!!! The truck was a mess....so I had to wash it at the car wash before I drove it home. At every stop light there was a pile of mud on the road from me sitting there LOL....none the less a couple cool machines up there and a few cool things I brought home....I will take some better pics later today...

The loader alone was worth what the tractor + loader sold for. It's great you were able to get some useful stuff at the auction, though, even if the loader tractor went too high.

WOW that 1254 went right.
That is the same Johnson loader I have on the 1655.

Pics of the Engines, the s7d is a 66, s8d is also a 66 and the tra10d is a 71. I need help with the year of the clinton...model D1102AoC serial 2550940 A. The blue is the s8d, the one with the gas tank is the tra, and the other is the s7d.

Hey! How come I keep missing out on these auctions? Where was this one held? I would sell one of my QT's to have that 1254 with the loader.
