Well I've been searching for an original 900 for a while now with no luck! But during my search I have been offered several 800's. I shouldn't of bought them, but the prices have been right, and they needed to come to a good home with me. So today I snagged an 800 with mower deck and early reel mower attachment. My other reel is green, this one is gold, with the old style Bolens logo. It's a bit rusty from sitting in a barn for a very long time, but it should make a great restoration candidate someday. Enjoy the pics!

Very nice original 800 and the reel mower is a keeper with both guards still on it.
Been looking for a nice reel mower forma long time now, they sure don't come up very often.

I was just talking with Brian about this because we live close to each other. I have never seen a reel mower for sale locally. Then this year I was looking for a 600 and a guy emailed me stating he had one. Well the 600 so happened to have a light green reel mower with it. Then I was looking for a 900, and a guy emailed me with this 800, and it had a reel mower. So I really didn't need a 3rd 800, but I couldn't leave the reel mower behind!

Well I'd be happy to take one off your hands if you get too overwhelmed with your overabundance of reel mowers

I actually found one earlier this summer on the Facebook pages and got it shipped but it is just good for parts and definitely not worth what it cost me to get it here.

Sorry to hear that, If I stumble across anymore I'll be sure to keep you in mind.
