IT HAS THE 12HP KOHLER ON IT, DECK, SNOW BLADE, LIFT ATTACHMENT ON THE BACK AND RUNS BEAUTIFULLY!!!! WHERE CAN I GET PARTS OR WHAT OTHER MODELS PARTS ARE COMPATIBLE WITH MINE? ALL HELP IS APPRECIATED

They didn't acually only make it ohe year it's just the way the numbers are 12=12hp 5=geardriven and 7 is the last digit of the year produced. I have a 1276 which is the same as yours only hydro and a 66 year model. So there are a lot of tractors that are the same body style just different numbers such as a 1057,1077,1277, even the raider is pretty much the same hope this helps.

that does help quite a bit! THANK YOU!!!!!! So where are some good places to get parts? I'm having to machine my pulley that runs my deck belts because some jackrod put the wrong bearings in it and they spun so i have to bore it out and machine a bushing to press into the pulley and then press the bearings into the bushing. It'll work great but geez.
