No attachments unfortunately, trying to source some pto parts for it, These are pretty scarce in NZ, I would have to import a attachment if I wanted one (I do :) )

To be honest no one even has this size tractor nor could you get a suitable sized implement - everything this size is mower only, have to go to at least 3 ton before you could get a implement

Mike, your 800 is superb in its orginal state. I think your Aussie neighbours a few hours away will have a few Bolens knocking around. I have to say people are absolutely right that your countryside look like England; uncanny! Cheers Andrew

Very nice looking tractor. The frame looks black. Is it black or brown? I thought they were brown.

Thanks folks - theres at least another two 800s I know about around the country but Bolens gear in general is pretty rare here, this probably came in with a family who moved here, Lawn tractors never really caught on in NZ, at least not this small. Starting to see the odd restored machine be imported however. The frame is a blue-gray color, more a gray, I think it would have been brown. Hood as far as I can tell has not been repainted.

Its fairly original - someone will know if im kidding myself saying that, it has had the starter motor off something added and an extra hitch on the back. Seat also.

All the modifcations have been done well though, all neatly fab'd to fit the original mounting holes/brackets.

Andrew, that Morris in the garage is my 1957 two door, only done 18k from new. Is actually a domestic model (ie made in England), most Minors out here were NZ built so its a little more interesting in that respect. I am the 3rd owner. Yep, if I had taken the photos 10m down the property, it could easily be rural UK, will take a pic and you will see

A bit of a bummer with this was when I got it, it had a large truck exhaust fitted which ruined the decals on the other side :(
