Me as King of the world on our new Bolens. I was the lawn mower driver and that 10 horse 38" cut was a big step up from the old Sears rear engine rider with 20 something inch cut. About 2-1/2 to 3 acres of mowing. I'd been doing it for a couple years by then. Now my parents would get turned in for child endangerment.

That was me...

Started with a 4 horse Huffy, moved up to a 7 horse Sears.

Kept the house and 2 acres mowed. Built a trailer for the push mower, gas, cooler, mowing half the neighborhood by the time I was 10.

I think the most expensive was $5, took half a day!

But I had spending money!

The 1050 was a Wisconsin TRA10D with manual transmission. Your 1220 was the same chassis, but with an S12D Wisconsin. We traded the 1050 in on a 1225 which is like your 1220, but with a hydrostatic trans. All 3 had the same cast iron rear end with manual diff lock.

Just made a deal with a guy today. Getting a Bolens 1225, not our old one, but similar. Said he'd be dropping it at the farm in the next week or so. "Ran when parked" , so we'll see. Project number 1,411 or so.

I graduated from a Lawn Boy push mower to a Farmall H with a John Deere #5 hay mower, at about 10 years of age.

Your parents didn't put a helmet on you? No steel toed boots or hearing protection or goggles or, or? Gosh, it's a miracle you are alive! LOL.

I started out pushing an old hand me down Toro push mower with a Briggs. My granddad bought it new in the early fifties. It had pneumatic balloon tires and didn't push all that hard for as much as it weighed. I could get the yard mowed in six hours if I walked steady. It didn't kill me, it made me stronger if anything.

Back in the days when those were new I looked forward to the new models about as much as farm tractors, pick ups and cars. Still have the 1050 which is the "stand in" for jobs I don't want to mistreat the J.D. hydrostatic with. I started out with an almost new 650.
