Pulling it's own weight and then some

The starter died on my 1886 out in the woods where I have been extracting fill. I got the old 1250 to pull the 1886 and the implement out of the woods on this trailer. It was ugly, ruts, logs you name it but the 1250 pulled it all with no problem.

Got to hand it to the old 1250, it's a tough little tractor.:trink40:

Reason why 2 are better than 1!


Thanks for sharing.

They are incredible tractors. I pulled my H16 up into the driveway from the back yard last night with the 1886. There was almost no difference in power even pulling 600+ lbs uphill. That is an awesome pic.

Awesome picture of the tractors. That 1250 is a nice tractor.
Part of me wants to say the 1250 was the best of the large frames. The combination of the bulletproof Wisconsin 12 and the Eaton 12 makes this thing a real workhorse. I prefer plowing with my 1250 over all the the other large frames.
Nice hauling with the 1250.:fing32: I'm starting to appreciate just how reliable these Bolens are. That is the difference between a tool an a toy.

In my short experience, I think the 12hp might be easier on the eaton 12 transmission than an 18 hp or higher re-power. I just like the way those 12 and 10 hp seem to have much more effective torque than the new 23 hp twins at "name your big box". Gearing down and a heavy gauge frame helps, too.:)
yes I,ll take the old wis over the junk they make today.
