Could any of you help correctly identify the model # and correct tractor for the deck?  Approximate year of manufacture?  I picked this up with a few other attachments in a barn find last year.  What is it worth?

I'm planning to list it once I figure out what it is and what it belongs too.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

That looks like a 54" and would fit a large frame Bolens, like the 1886

Definitely a 54" deck for the large frames (1886's, HT-series). It could be a either a 18070 or a 18110 deck. It looks like the lift adjustment handle and a couple of associated parts are missing. The 18110 handle is made from flat stock, whereas the 18070 handle is made from round stock.

 

The ink on those old ID tags often wears off, but sometimes you can make out the impressions made during the printing process if you use a magnifier and get the lighting just right. Hold a flashlight at various angles until you can see the impressions, if necessary.

It's a model 18070. If you lightly sand what remains of the ID tag the numbers should appear as there should be a slight impression in the decal.

To determine the value of the mower deck on the basis of the four pictures would be very difficult as the condition of the gear box, belt, idlers, blades, wheel bushings, rust on underside, etc. are unknown.  Since you say you picked it up with some other attachments I would assume you have never heard it in use to know if there are any bearing or gear noises.  To determine a value you might check with your local insurance company or car club as they may be able to suggest an appraisal service that can actually see it to give it an accurate value or another option might be to list it for sale with a value you feel comfortable with since you know how much you have invested in it (I assume when you purchased it along with the other attachments you assigned it a value at that time) and see if it sells.

I had a 54" deck at one time and they are so heavy that where the clevis attaches to  the deck they want to tear them selves loose. When they gets loose it is very difficult to keep the deck level.  Had I kept mine I was going to weld an angle brace to the deck then to it. Your deck is missing the height adjusting lever, So I would say that looking at it as is $75-100 would be all I would pay.
