I have had this bolens in my lockup for a number of years, just got it out to put snow blade on it. Can anyone tell me what model it is. After some research I came up with G14 but do not know model number. It has split in front and is 60inches long and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to GTT!

From what I can tell, It looks to be a Bolens 853

Did you buy the tractor like that or did you replace the decals and paint it?
This is what its supposed to look like:

That's definitely not a 'factory' paint job. Not bad looking though.

It would help if you could tell us what engine is in it.

I Havent been up close to one of those brown seats in a while so I cant honestly remember if those were leather. I believe they were vinyl like the red seats were.

I'm about 99% sure its an 853

The tractor has the High/Low range belt switch lever and it has no locking differential
The only models that had that Hi/ low system were the 800,850,853,900 and the 853 was the only one without the locking differential

I believe that is what is referred to as "Encyclopedic Knowledge"

Yes, they were vinyl over a foam pad.

As best I can tell from that pic, it has a Tecumseh engine, not the original B&S 8hp.
