As some of you may know I have collection serial number for bolens tractors to get a better idea how the serial numbers worked and see how many of each modal was made.   I am very low in number for the 1886 and 1250.    I am hoping there is some members here willing to post there numbers..

 

Thanks!!!

1250 Bolens. 
I have a Bolens 1250 Husky. My serial # 7119. Don't know much about it.  It needs tires and the seat was gone. Some of the gauges are gone and the ignition switch is bad. Rusted too. Don't have a camera to take a picture. It really is a heavy duty tractor. I love it.

I know that if I was to take it apart and price it like some of the parts that you see on e-bay, that I could get a lot of money for it. Boy some of those prices are ridiculous but try to find them.

I wish I could, but the SN decal was burned off by the left cylinder heat on my 1886-02.  :(

I've got three 1250's and a 1455, the 1250's all have foil decals under the hood but the spaces where there looks like there should be numbers is blank except for a 0 in one box.
The 1455 has something on its plate but its worn off.

Is there any other tags on these?

 

I bought the first 1250 and 1455 about three years ago, I bought the last two over the weekend in the same town in NJ. They all have white wheels, all of these look pretty much all original. The 1250's have S12D motors, the 1455 has an S12D with an AC Delco ignition added.

Can you post some photos of the tags?   If you wet them sometimes you can read the numbers better.

The 2 you just got in NJ did they come from the estate sale that Sledgehammer here on the forum has been talking about
