I'm not sure I want to post pics of it. LOL It is very rough. I saw it on Ebay a few years ago and it had some skinny wheels on it that I wanted, no one was bidding on it so I think I hit it for $25 or something like that. A few days later Ebay sent me a winning bidder memo. The funniest part of the whole deal is, the seller was a couple hours away but stated he traveled to a friends cottage near by from time to time and the tractor could be picked up at either place. So the poor fella had to drag it with him on is vacation for a mere $25.

yea lets see it. Bolens1000 and I live in western ny! SNOW AND SALT COUNTRY!! we've probably seen some pretty rough machines around here because of where we live. Besides for $25 we arent expecting to see much. $25 for a whole machine is great in any conditon. Take some pics!!!!
