It looks like a 1050 bolens. My dad has one that looks very simular. The throttle and choke are normally on the consol that looks like it is missing. His has a wisconsin engine in it. His is also a hydrostatic.

I thought it was a 1050 at first also, but they had a little different fender and I think they had a tube frame. My brother had a 1050 about 15 years ago and I am going off my memory that one and my memory could be wrong. The fenders look newer to me. Dan

Hi, I agree with Dan. I almost bought a new Bolens 10-50 around 1968 and it had the 2 pipe frame and a Wisconsin. This looks newer to me. I am NO expert on Bolens. After I bought my Wards Squire 10, I forgot all about Bolens. On thing I do remember about them, they used a very small diameter pulley on the starter generator to be able to crank the engine without a compression relief. I can't say for sure about the 10 hps, but when repowering from the larger Wisconsin engines, they operate at and are rated at 2800 rpm. instead of 3600 If you try to replace them with the new big block V twins etc, and turn the governors down to maintain correct equipment rpms you are looking for the possibility of heating failures, and much less than rated hp. I talked to both Kohler and Briggs applications engineering people on this issue when down to Louisville at the Outdoor Power Expo in October. Of course, a skid loader that is turned up from 2800 to 3600 should be very lively. Happy Holidays, what the heck, Merry Christmas also. Al Eden

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
