I've redone my 1257 a long while back and use it only for plowing the driveway. I have a sickle bar I restored and have installed once but don't plan on using it due to how rare they are.
I know there's a ton of attachments for these awesome red beauties. I love my 1257 and never want it to bust or break on me. My questions are how much can a tractor like mine take? As in rear end pulling or pushing, weight, like how much pushing and pulling can a rear end and frame do til making a "boo-boo"? Just curious is all... not that I'll ever put a 50 year old tractor to a test I put too much money and time into it. Just a driveway plow.
