Bolens 1050. Not mine. Ran when parked. Owner passed away. Son would love to see it go to someone who will fix it up. Wants $100 as is with no attachments. Near Petoskey Michigan. PM me if interested.  Paul

If that lift cylinder were in better shape, I'd be all over that.  I live in the Detroit area, but spend every weekend in West Branch, so Petoskey is no big deal for me.  I've noticed your from the Soo.  I love it up there -- so much so that I came very close to going to LSSU just so I could live in the UP.

I went to LSSU and stayed up here!

 

Lift cylinder definitely looks rusty. The tractor is just over an hour and a half from me, so I haven't seen it in person. Aren't those cylinders the same as on medium frames and Q's? Pretty easy to get, if so. I assume the rest of the lift setup (pump, etc.) is the hard part to find. Tractor looks pretty nice.

Lift cylinder is different than the Q tractors,it is the same as the ones on the hydro tube frames if I remember right

Before and After shots..I picked up this tractor and after a little work, It's runs fine and the hydro works too!

It's a 850 not a 1050 tho. I also have a seat for it I just have to paint it 1st before I put it on.
