If it was just a loader your 147 would be OK, but for a backhoe the 1250 would be a much better choice.

If you don't need another connecting rod Could you do an In-frame rebuild? Since the Wisconsin has a removable jug I don't see why you can't just pull the jug and put a set of rings in it.

Loader only on the 1250 a backhoe is to much for it.

A loader and backhoe would be fine on a 1250. They are as rugged as they come, and easy to repower too! Mine has a Briggs 18 twin in it!20160330_152604.jpg
I have ran backhoes on larger farm tractors and I have ran the one on the back of my HT20. The HT20 has 7.5 more HP and is over 100 pounds heavier then a 1250 and the backhoe is very hard on the HT20. Cost of building a backhoe for a 1250 vs what you can do with it, I would be looking at buying a used scut with a back hoe already on it.
