I try to no longer buy copy's of tractors that I already have.....  When you have over 85 bolens tractors you try to find stuff that you dont have to save room! 

I saw this little 59 pop up on craigslist and I knew I just had to buy it just for the attachments for my other Ride a matics so off we went to bring her home     Guy added a newer engine to her years ago but I got that taken off and the factory engine back in place for now.  I think I can sell the newer engine and get back most of what I payed for all of it.

Hey looks like you did well on the attachments. Nice job on getting a Kohler back onto that tractor. Those 8HP Briggs are nice engines. They go well on snowblowers too. Good luck with your sale to recoup some money.

Nice additions !

  Oh, Jerome, buying doubles to get attachments!! Better start planning another building really soon! (I am thinking you will be featured on "Hoarding: Buried Alive" in just a few more years.)

Nice '59, I have mine back together except for the hood and belt guard but haven't tried to start it yet, hopefully soon.
