I have 2 Bolens 1250 tractors. One runs the other not yet. The running one has a strange attachment on the front. It appears to be for backing trailers.

The other 1250 has a bracket under the transaxle. This tractor came with several homemade attachments.

Any thoughts on what they are? Thanks, Rick

Rick, the brackets along the transaxle might have been used as a rude hitch of sorts.  My Farmall tractor uses something similar to push a snowblade, a home made combination.

:ditto: but if your not good with backing up trailers or have a short trailer or even a long one with a shorth hitch that front hitch makes is a lot easier
