Hi, I just got a free Bolens 1050 Husky garden tractor in mint condition with plow and mower deck. It has a heavy duty Wisconsin engine. It still has the pto shaft and belts for the deck and the option for a snowblower. My plan is to leave it stock so I can use it to plow and mow, but I will be getting some 25in bear claws for the back vs the 23in stock tires and rims. Over all, it's very well built and I plan to use it as a utility tractor. Very Happy  upnorthkid Very Happy  Let me know any history about this tractor. Thanks.

Sorry about lack of pics.. I no longer have a computer and my phone is being ornery. Upnorthkid: The Wisconsin engine is imo the best motors ever produced. I would not, however get bearclaws. If it was me, I would make dual adapters and run duals. Also, if you cut lugs on your tires you can get way better traction while keeping the stock feel. I now have 2 of these tractors, the 1050, and it's slightly smaller brother, the g10. I am planning on using the g10 for a utility tractor.

It would have cost me 500$ in ignition parts and a rebuild kit. The is 13 hp Briggs is way better. Always starts instantly, and is good on fuel. And thanks btw.. lol. Usaually in the pulls I beat 1997 Murray but at the last one I picked the wrong gear and he beat me by 2 feet. I actually think that these bolens' are the perfect pullers..
