Wisconsin powered garden tractor

This is a Bolens Model 1476 with a 14hp S14-d Wisconsin single cylinder gas engine with a Eaton hydrostatic transmission, The tractor weighs 450kg minus the tiller, The tiller is powered by a drive shaft attached to a splined PTO shaft that also extends to the front for a snow blower attachment. Hydraulic lift is featured as well as float and depth adjustments. This model was made from 1970-1971 with not more than a few thousand units produced. I will be doing a frame off restoration next year, but in the meantime, I am restoring the wheels, hubs, tiller, three point and various accessories. The wife took the video (fugi digital camera) with me driving. If this post is in anyway inappropriate or off topic, please let me know, I don't want to offend anyone.

Welcome to the forum, I am sure you have not offended us, we are no doubt envious of having a Bolens tractor. Makes a change as a lot of us collect mowers from the 1870's! rather than the 1970's,and sometimes would prefer perhaps to sit on a tractor than push around our exceedingly heavy cast iron vintage mowers. Let us know how the restoration goes.
