Well heading out on a 3 1/2 hrs road trip to pick up an 800 with belly blade and a 1050 with blower, snowblade and deck. The guy is also throwing in some bolens books including maintenance guide! Should be worth drive. From talking to a few people the belly blade on 800 is a rare find if it is all there. The 1050 has chains on it too. Sounds like I will have to replace starter drive on 800 and 1050 needs ignition module so should be easy to get these to running. Will probably end up selling 800 as my storage space is limited (7 vintage and one modern sled. And wheeler) I'm excited to get 1050, it seems to be a popular model. Are they Hydro or gear drivin?

The 800 and 1050 are both gear drive tractors. Hopefully everything is there for the belly blade, it would be awesome to see one mounted on a tractor.

Good Luck!

Hope you have a nice trip!

The 800 and 1050 are Gear driven.

If its not homemade and a time period correct mid mount blade then it is a good find as you dont see them come up for sale too often.

Looking forward to seeing pictures!
