Not mine. Should go quick at this price!

If that were "Lockport IL" I'd be on my way to go get it already.... have no idea where Lockport NY is (except that NY is too far away and I don't know anyone in the area)
I just tripped on a Cub Cadet 1250 that I had running already on starter fluid, bought cheaper than most "parts" K301s bring, by themselves. Hoping that concentrating on that for a while, will bring down the price of Ariens stuff around here... it seems I have been finding Cub attachments cheap and plentiful in this area (tractors don't seem to be though) and have been "threatening" to convert over if I don't start finding reasonably priced Ariens stuff...... now watch Cub stuff balloon in price now that I have that machine.... I ran into this when I had the basketcase S 16 several years ago, after I got rid of it, stuff started becoming available. now I get a GT19 and stuff dries up again.

If it were by me, it would be in my barn already as well.
I had a CC 1200 (gear drive version of your 1250). It was a nice machine. If that has the rubber motor mounts, make sure you double check them. They are a common wear point on those. That was my only complaint on it. I've seen those motor mounts wear out and the oil pan wear a hole in itself rubbing on the frame.
CC parts/attachments are easier to find around here as well. I've been pretty lucky with my Ariens finds. I'm picking up another tractor (GT16) w/deck this weekend to add to the herd. The fact that I occasionally drive between Dayton and Cleveland has helped.

well at least you get a few Ariens pop up around your area.... occasionally I see the HT and YT's, I do see a ton of their push mowers and snow blowers (walk behind kind)
A buddy has both a 1200 and a 1250, I went thru both about 6-7 years ago and had them in top shape; he lets em sit out all year and they are dead again (I dont get why, up til a couple years ago he always had them inside when not actually being used)
