This will be my 2nd one, I have a H14 that works real nice, I hope to restore the 1225 and my G14 in the spring. My H14 will be my daily driver. I wish I had a garage like yours:worshippy1:


Lol....yeah and I should have a bigger one LOL

Not a bad deal at all... be careful though, those tubeframes tend to multiply very quickly. Just ask my wife, it all started with my 1254, now I have 12 tractors in various conditions which make a very good perimeter fence.

Here are some pics of the bolens 1225, It needs a little TLC but I think I could bring her back. It ran when I picked it up and the lift worked as well but when we went to put it on the trailer the lift stopped working. It seems to have air in the system and I don't know how to bleed it. I can't do much with it right now as it is -15c. I just removed the battery because it was quite a birds nest in there and I don't need to buy a wire harness as well as a bunch of other things. I guess It wasn't a bad deal I paid $150 for the outboard that I traded him for.

Looks like the 1225 has the potential to be a great Tractor :bounce:

Wow Al,
What a deal, and you drove it on the trailer. I'd say you hit a home run. The attachments alone are worth a lot more than you for the tractor. Great Job !!
