Will the 1250 have enough power to pull the model 10 on this page?

They recommend 20 horsepower garden tractor but we all know the 1250 is not your average garden tractor......thoughts?

I would say yes.

Pulling a 1 bottom plow would be more stress on the machine that a potato digger which will be going through loose soil from hilling them.

 

That's an interesting design, I've been thinking of getting something like this as digging 3 bushels by hand is not fun :D

Only problem you might have is traction.What are you running for tires?

  Only comment I have is wow!!!!  :biting_nails: That is super expensive for a very simply designed rear attachment.  I would try building it.

I have the standard garden tractor / turf tires from the factory. I have double wheel weights and also the tires are filled with rim guard.

I'm thinking if you have enough traction to pull the 1 bottom plow you'll be fine with this attachment

You should have no issues at all then. This is what I use for digging potatoes.

I'd think you will be ok. When that Wisconsin is running at the proper RPM it should have no trouble. And I think you'll be fine with traction.
