I have acquired an old Bolens garden tractor but need to identify it in order to order parts. I found a sticker on the Hydraulic pump model=18709, serial #0200278. is that the pump ID or the tractor ID?

on the same sticker it has FMC Bolens, Wisconsin. Anywhere else to look

 

I have attached pictures also to see if that helps.

Others may see something I don't see, but I think that is a 1966-69   Bolens 850  (model 191-01 or 191-02) tractor.   ....The other possibility is a 1966-69 Bolens 1050 (model 192-01 or 192-02).

 

The front tires were typical of the 1050, but the transaxle appears to be a 3-speed, while the 1050 had a "six -speed".  ....More pics showing more details would help with identification.  ....If the numbers are still on the front of the Wisconsin, that will help id.

 

However, over the years, many components may have been interchanged on these models, so that may be a hybrid.

 

The numbers on the hydraulic pump are the numbers for the hydraulic lift kit, which was sold as an accessory.  ...It did not come from the factory already installed.

Enlarging the pic shows what appears the Hi/Lo shift rail, so that would be the "six-speed" transaxle, making it a 1050 as Brian said.
