No, it's not a new child or grandchild, it's a Bolens 1256! I bought a 1256 tractor I've been eyeing since last summer. He finally came down in price, as he needed some $$. It is a 1256 02, ser 106657, Wisconsin engine TRA 12D, spec 336913, 55940028. Runs good, no smoke, starts right up in the dead of cold! I know it is a 71 or 72, as it has the Husky dog on the front. You experts can tell me. Needs a new seat, missing 2 panels down low and a tail light assy or lens. Also a genuine light switch.
It came with a plow, snow caster , chains, no weights, extra parts and mower deck shafts and 3 decks. I will get the snow blower and 2 more decks once the snow melts some. There will be some more small stuff, once he finds it all. He drove it up to me as it was just down the street. I did do some work on it last summer and said I want it if he ever sells. It will be my work tractor as I have all those Ride A Matics to restore first. Take a look and tell me what you think. You experts can tell me what year it is also. I paid $475, I think it was a fair price for what I got. Everything here in Conn. is on the higher side.
