Was the 1476 lighter than a normal large frame?

Tractordata.com has it listed at only 860 pounds, while the other large frames are 100+ pounds heavier. Does anyone know for sure if that's a mistake or if they really were lighter? I'm looking for something heavy but cheap to put a FEL on.

That does seem light for a large frame, but I'm not sure if it is right or wrong. The difference in weight you are asking about between the 1476 and the rest of the large frame lineup is probably just from a different and bigger engine that the other LF use. The 1476 is a single cylinder engine and the 1886-HT23 run the kohler twin cylinder engine.. I'm sure there is a few other differences that may add weight to the higher HP large frames, but I'm not that well versed in them. I think the tractor itself will be fine to handle a FEL because the smaller 1250 could run a FEL.  Hopefully I'm helping out, but I'm sure the LF guys will chime in to help you answer your question better

That's just the tractor without the deck right?

for what's it worth, I have a 1477 with a S14D single cylinder wisconsin with a Johnson front end loader and it seems "fine" - I did add about 150 cement weight at the back but the machine seems to handle the FEL without any problems

Correct, 975 as shipped no attachments on board. If you search our manuals section you can find the owner manual. If you can't find it send me a PM with your email address and I can send you the manuals on it.

My friend had a 1476 that has a Briggs 18 hp twin with a Johnson 10 midget loader on it. It also has two 1962 Ford Econoline weight plates on the back.  It is very strong and can lift a lot.

Bit of a tangent.  Is the seat /fender pan the same on the 1476 and the 1886?

It is a functional equivalent.
The 1476 has a deck height indicator that the 1886 does not.
I believe that may have made a slight difference.
