When you have a Bolens 1250 that won't start and you need it closer to the garage?

You break out the 1886 Forklift and move it :D :D :D

That 1250 should be mortified now!
Did you warn it you were going to post pictures on the Internet?

I'll bet it will never misbehave again!
That's if you can coax it out of the corner of the shed!

Could have moved the garage closer to the tractor the same way :rolling:  but the way you did it was probably easier.

 

  Are the duals loaded on the 1250?

Neat photos!

 

I'll bet you find a lot of uses for the forklift too. :)

 

Do you ever run any other attachments or use it primarily as a forklift?

The duals are not loaded.

 

There really isn't any way to run any attachments with the forklift.

 

I have moved my trailer with it as it does have the ball on the weight box, but other than that, it's a dedicated forklift.

 

The other day when I was over at the original owner's store, they told me that as far as they know it's the only one that was ever made, and that there is no relief valve on the forklift hydraulics.

Neat setup but your sure asking a lot out of that poor little tractor.  I would put the forks on the loader on my IH 400 and have a tractor built fore the task at hand.  Nice photos just the same.

And you even trained the forklift to do it without you driving.

On a side note and not meant to derail, but how do you like the performance of R4's over regular AG's?

The only reason R4s are on that tractor is that it had a set on it when I bought it.  I bought a 2nd set when I added the Dual Wheel Kit.  If it wasn't for that I'd have anything but R4s on it.

 

Fortunately I only use it with the Sickle-Mo and that doesn't need a lot of traction. R4s are marginally better for traction than turfs, but nowhere close to AGs.

 

R4s would be my last choice for a tread on any tractor.

A forklift is for sure a good thing to have around for moving dead tractors.
