My 1054 Bolens Husky, Sue

This is the story of how I got this tractor. It all started when some friends of mine had this tractor sitting underneath of a tree for about ten years(he said it was 3 but the tires were completly sunk into the ground(about 5 inches)). They were just going to trash it so I said don't throw it away that is one really strong a**ed garden tractor. So they gave me that cast iron hog called the 1054 Bolens Husky. Now getting it on to the trailer, that is a swell story,a swell story indeed. THIS THING DOESN'T, I REPEAT DOESN'T ROLL!!!! (It is just the way the transmition is set up.) My dad and I had to pickup the rear end, by hand mind you, and shove it up and onto the trailer. Now this thing weighs about 900 LBS!!!! But thank God that we had ramps on the trailer otherwise I would have had to go back to my house and get the tractor. Now back to my story. My dad and I had to push and shove and work our a**es off just to get the hog half way on the trailer!!!!!!!!! Now like I said before this thing is heavy. So we had to get our friends help to get up all the way onto the trailer. Now once we got it onto the trailer we hed to tie it down. That wasn't hard. That thing is like an anchor. After we tied it down we took it Back to my house in Onaga KS. When we got back to my house it was time to unload the hog and check it out. Of course mt dad couldn't do it the easy way. We had to drag that thing's fat a** off the trailer again!!!!!!!!! I asked my dad 'Why couldn't we just use the tractor?' He said that hard work is good for you!!!!!!! And I could have died right then and there. Getting the fat hog off wasn't as hard for some unknown reason. Once we got it off of the trailer and into the shed we drained all of the water out of the hog's 10 Hp WISCONSIN motor. Then we put some oil in the motor after the water had evaporated. All we had to do is ajust the points just a little bit and the motor took off and ran like a champ. Now the people that had the tractor before me never have worked on the motor and I havent eather and this motor doesn't burn or dirty oil. It is still like brand new!!!!!!!! And we also replaced the tires then we had a good Garden tractor. This thing will go 12 mph in 3rd high and like .05 mph in 1st low, it has alot of varation. Now I use it around the farm to spray weeds and other small jobs. I love this thing.
