Traded my MTD 995 for this Bolens 1000. The old Wisconsin runs flawless and everything works as it should. How'd I do?

I don't know much about the mtd you traded but a good running 1000 is always a good deal IMO. Did you get a seat with it?

Yeah, what is it about missing seats on these things???  Most even have the suspension/brackets missing and harder to find all that. What's the deal on those? Really good to put on other tractors or pieces of junk that don't hold up?  I can understand the seat and upholstery being bad, but not why the frames are always gone?

The seat is gone so people take the frame off and put another seat on people have done that for years.

So far all I've had to do is clean out the breather drain hole on the engine and the smoking is gone. Installed a new Champion D16, some MMO in the gas and crankcase then took it out and worked it hard pulling out some small trees and checked the plug. It's a perfect tan with no oil on it and the oil level hasn't gone down...yet.
