Just surfing CL this morning and ran across this item:

Pretty good price, but too far away for me.  Maybe interesting to a collector in Ohio.

Looks like possibly an 853

I'm kind of "Opinionated" I guess?   I KNOW......theirs "collectors" that like all the models of a brand.......then there are "Tinkerers" like Me then, that like many brands, BUT would like the better made ones and Real GT's and not lawn mowers. Sorry!  Not meaning to P any body off. :(

Well, it was just put out there for information is all.  And, it's "there's," as in "there is" (truncated version), not "theirs" which is a possessive.  

 

Not to be picky, but capitalization of the word "me" (or "she," for that matter) is conventionally reserved for the Deity, e.g. "God."

 

Just saying...

Agreed, it looks to be an 853. It's a Tube Frame which all have horizontal engines. Definitely not the biggest of the Tube Frames, but it's not a light weight lawn tractor by any means. Looks to be complete and price isn't terrible.

I thought if it had 5 bolt (or 3 bolt) 12" rear wheels it's a garden tractor...?

 

I'd look at that if I lived close and needed a plow tractor...

It is a garden tractor capable of powering all 30+ attachments Bolens offered :thumbs:

Not even close to a LT
