Into the mix I will submit my Bolens 1886-04, I purchased it York PA. in 2001, it came with the mowing deck,a sno-caster and a tiller. Purchased from the original owner and had all the manuals. All original but the seat which really wasn't in to bad of shape, a couple of small tears so i took it off to save it from getting worse.
It was my first real exposure to using a Large Frame, I mowed and casted snow with it for several seasons and it was the one that started my Large Frame affliction.

My intentions were to restore it but has the years have gone by I think i'll probably leave it as is. I found an NOS power steering unit for it and my plan is to install it ... someday. These pics are from the last season I really used it, I fire it up still once or twice a year, let it out for some yard exercise now and again. My HT 23's have taken over snow removal and for the foreseeable future it will remain that way.
It's still enjoyable to saddle the old boy, listen to the Eaton rear end rumble and growl, the throaty tone of the stout Kohler K twin as it winds up towards full throttle and the enjoyment of operating what was such a solid piece of machinery sent out of Port Washington all those years ago... yup grinnin.

Sweet Bolens!!

I love a nice original tractor! Love that Sears suburban and I can't say I've ever seen a Homelite like that before!

Looks like a good group of survivor tractors this month. I have a couple I would enter but still can't post pictures from the computer and I don't have a smart phone. Good luck to all that try. Let's see some more.                                                                                                                                          Roger

Not sure if our David Bradley walk behind qualifies as a Tractor? I believe it meets the other criteria. You have a good group of tractors to pick from now. It will not be a easy choice.

I will check back for the answer.

Regards,

 Chris
