Drive shaft delivers power directly from powertake-off (P.T.O.) to attachment--front, rear and center-mounted. Switching powered attachments requires only a short time. Slide universal joint over end of splined power-take-off shaft, align holes in joint and shaft, and secure with special cotter pin.

SEAT ADJUSTMENT (4 positions available)

The 1250 tractor features adjustable seat spring suspension. Leaf springs can be added or removed from the seat as desired by the operator. If additional leaf springs are desired, order them through your Bolens dealer.

Slide attachment drive and P.T.O. drive shaft universal joint together; install pins into hitch points. The P.T.O. (power-take-off) drive shaft is located under the front of the tractor frame and is connected to the engine by three drive belts. This assembly has a drive shaft which is splined at both ends so that front, center and rear power attachments can be coupled directly to it. Universal joints on the attachments are equipped with needle-bearings allowing you to raise or lower attachments (with hydraulic lift lever) while the tractor is under full power.

Your HUSKY Tractor has the fastest attachment switch system in the industry. No belts to install. . . no special tools needed.


Always remove universal joint from powertake-off shaft when attachments are removed from tractor. If the joint is not removed and the power-take-off is engaged, damage will result from whipping action of the free joint.
