Hello,

 

I am new to the Bolens side of tractors.  I purchased a bundle package for $350, which seemed pretty cheap I think.

 

1225 Tractor (complete)

1050 Tractor (complete)

tiller

Snow blower

2 42" decks

Front blade with hydraulics

Bolens cart/wagon

 

All in decent shape with surface rust at the worst.  Everything moves freely.  Tractors have been sitting in a shed for years with the originals owners intent to restore because of sentimental reasons but never did.

 

How rare is the 1225?  He said it was the first Bolens hydro

Hello, do you have any pictures of them?

 

Sounds like they are in decent shape, the 1225 is not rare but it was the first hydro Tubeframe

Good price in my mind, I paid 425 for a 1050 and a 850 in similar shape, with 2 mower deck and a worn out snowblower.

There are a bunch of manuals for those in our Manuals Section. You can download 3 for free per day so, better get started with the owners manuals and then the shop manual and engine manuals. Good Luck, Rick
