I do have a question about moving the tractor. There is no pin to release the drive of rear end and I don't know how to move it without starting it?

You got to be careful manually moving the hydrostatic tranny's.

As long as you go slow your ok

Doc,

If the driveshaft is siezed up, and you push the hydro tractor, can that do damage to the hydro? Does the driveshaft have to spin as the tractor moves?

The driveshaft does not need to move when pushing the tractor.Just push it slow so the pump does not load up.

My 1256 doesn't have a valve,I don't think any tube frame came with one.

Maynard is correct there is no free wheeling valve on any of the tubeframe tractors.

The parking brake handle is under the left front side of the fender. When you are sitting on the seat, it is just under your thigh. You can also pull the double idler away from the belts to keep the drive shaft from turning/loading the pump. That should do the trick.

That won't stop the pump from turning as it is being driven by the rear wheels at that point.It will however stop the extra drag of the engine on it and may push a tad easier,but push/pull it slow.

Awol, great job on striking a deal on a new Bolens. She looks to be in great shape and the snow caster is in really good shape too. Sucks that you had the weather you did to go get it but I am sure you feel it was worth it in the end :D

I hate trying to move the hydro tractors that don't have a release. Just go slow with it. You can feel them start to load up the pump if you are going to fast.
