My wife and I made the trip to pick up the Bolens 900 I bought the other day. The tractor also came with a sickle bar mower,tiller and sprayer. The tractor starts right up and doesn't smoke. The tiller was mounted on the tractor and turns when the pto is engaged. The sickle mower we just put in storage.
We did mount the sprayer on my 800 to see what if anything would happen. It actually does work. I do need to clean out the tank and the lines a little better because the nozzle would clog with tiny particles of dirt.
George will post some pics and hopefully a short video of the sprayer.Very happy with my latest addition.

congrats on the new bolens, i seen that on ebay it was a very nice tractor. any reason you put the sickle away? if you have any tall weeeds or small saplings you want to cut they kick but i love mine i have cut 1 1/2 inch saps with no problem. good luck with it if u had the money we would have been in a biding war but i bought some stuff in ohio so im spent for now

I don't think there will be anything wrong with the sickle. I have one already sitting in the garage and just didn't want to mount it on a tractor.We probably should have at least taken pictures of it. I'm glad you had already spent your money. I know the feeling. Sometimes there are too many things to try and buy and at other times you wonder why you can't find anything when you have that extra jingle in your pocket.

It is nice to see these units come up every now and then. People that have an attachment to them seem to know that they didn't keep it to get rich. Instead when it is time to sell they would rather it go to someone that will take care of it like they did.

Great buy for a great Bolens guy.

Nice find! Those sprayers are great. I have one that works really good, but I think I may modify it a little and put a bar boom on the back to make spraying the lawn a little easier.
