I've been speaking to a gentleman that says he has a Bolens large frame 1476 with mower deck. The tractor does not run, and he believes it has valve issues. He has been telling me for about 8 months now that he is gonna get his son over and dig it out of his barn to sell it. I asked for pictures way back when he initially called, and the model number. He said he'd get me pictures and he wasn't sure on what model it even was. Well I called numerous times and his excuse was that his son is always way too busy to help him get the tractor out to take pictures, he also will not give me a ballpark price on it. He lives a few hours away, so i don't want to drive there if he thinks a non running 1476 is worth $1500 and I think its worth $200. So I gave up calling on a regular basis and I've been just touching base with him like 0nce a month over the last 8 months. Well I recently called him and he said the tractor was still in the barn and his son hasn't had time to help him. He started describing somethings about it and its condition and then mentioned the tractor had a 4 speed gear shift trans in it. I've never heard of such a thing on a large frame, and I thought all large frames were hydrostatic I told him, but he insists it is a 1476 and has a 4 speed, he even was describing the shift pattern to me also. So, am I wrong? Were there gear shift large frames? Or does this guy think he has a large frame and he has another bolens model? I don't know what to do at this point. He wont provide pictures, he says its really nice shape, but I've heard that 1000x, I don't want to waste half a day and a bunch of diesel driving down there with a trailer to find the wrong tractor buried in a barn, and or have a ridiculous price set by him on it by the time I help him get it out and unburied. So any info and advice at this point would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
