I'm entering my 2 Bolens 1050 in their wedding attire. I was married August 5th to my best friend. Kim made the Bride and Groom for the tractors. Which we had sitting by the hall. They got lots of attention. Kim n I knew each other 35 years ago went our seperate ways reconnected 6 years ago we are now together. The Bolens with the blade my brotherlaw gave me 20 years ago. The other one I bought partially restored few years ago I got it runing Kim painted it.
Sorry, I tried to do this from my phone as technology can challenge me It didn't work.
We had a great day. The tractors and drivers brought a lot of chuckles and set a light hearted mood as everyone coming in saw them.
I'm very lucky man. Kim likes auctions, she likes things clean and painted including my garage and tractors, and she If I say I want to go look at a tractor after work she will hook up the trailer and gas up the truck so its ready for us to go when I get home. I had to marry her LOL

This tractor is a geared one and has the variable system. It's a great tractor, but has had its troubles over the years. Coil went bad in it once, lucky I had a spare one and it's been working good. It put it in parades and shows over the years. A picture with me and the load of hay, last picture is of my second and third cousins.
Thanks for lookin and readin,

I will also enter a second tractor to help w/ the count. This is a Massey 12 hydro with a Massey snowblower, and an original Massey vinyl cab with the doors. I also added a few items to trick it out. It has West Coast mirrors, a yellow flashing light, and a color back up camera.
The tractor, cab, and snowblower were bought along wiyh 2 other masseys, implements and a couple of loads of parts from a Widow. Her Husband had had these stored in a garage on the property. They had been well cared for, and she wanted the lot to go together. All the work that had been done on them appears to have been done at one of 2 garages. The package included manuals and slips showing the work at the shops. It is a nice tractor w/ a rare cab, that is stored in my garage. Thanks for looking.

If I may I'd like to nominate this great example of an International Harvester Cub Cadet lawn and garden tractor. It is a 1650. How you see it is how I found it. My son's wife's brother-in-law sold it to me when his wife got a new job in a new school district and they had to move. Her job required her to live in that district. Their new home does not have a yard big enough for it and he said he didn't need it anymore. He asked me if I would be interested in buying it. I did and now I am using it to mow my yard.
This is a great mower! It has a little trouble starting sometimes, but always starts and runs good, has no smoke when it runs, and it really does a great job mowing. Justin (previous owner) owned it for 6 years. He said he bought it from and older gentleman who said he bought it new. He had receipts for it, and always took good care of it. Justin changed the oil and sharpened the blades on it every year he owned it.
I found a tiller for it and I will put that to use on it next spring.
