First time I've ever seen a 1886 listed before in my area.

 

This one needs some love.

Other than JustinR that's in Eastern WA, I'm not aware of any other Bolens collectors in my area.

Not all that bad a price considering the FEL and other attachments.

 

Not sure about the rear blade though :D :D :D

Is the mower deck pictured in the ad really a 60" deck?  .....It looks more like a 42" to me? :(

 

I thought the decks for the large-frames were 48" or 54", and had a heavy-duty gearbox, and a different front u-joint ???

The deck is not the 60" version. I don't recognize the tiller being for a LF, but I could be wrong on that.

 

I emailed him with about the deck as I've been looking for the smaller version but it doesn't sound like he's open to separating any of the attachments.

Its a tube frame deck.

The tiller is a much newer tiller that looks to have the old mount arms for early large frames added to it. 

 

 

IMO its priced to high for the shape its in.
