Is the front axle mounting the same as a 1250?


No The 1250 is a Largeframe tractor and used a totally different mounting style

Doc, I'm pretty sure you overpaid. I'm certain several people here would help you out by buying them for what you have in them.

Nice looking weights! What do you have them on?

you dog :thumbs: only doc would get them for free :dancingbanana: They look great.


To make the deal even better I got the rear weights for free also :bounce:



A friend of mine sold his 1256 years ago and these weights were just sitting in the mud and he figured He would give them to me since I had some Bolens for them to go on.
I have yet to install the front weights on any of my Bolens yet, but the rears are on my 1050

Here is a pic of the mounting for my pto unit. If you use this type of mounting you will not have to do anything to the hood on your tractor. The front weight box will just move along with the front axle.

Mount that group 29 out front, it will give you PLENTY of weight ahead the axle to offset your plow. I have a Group 29 deep cycle and I threw it on the scale one day and found out it weighs 100 pounds!
It isn't always about how much weight you have, as much as WHERE you place it. Good luck.

One of our members, GT Man, has started marketing a "goodie" that could work as well. He calls it the Gard-N-Haul.

It functions as a front bumper, and then converts to a carrier.

I have one of his Hang-N-Hauls which attach to a sleeve hitch, and it works quite well.
