It cuts fantastic and easy blowing grass off since deck cover covers belt & pulleys.

Beautiful work, congratulations on that A+ restore. Wish I could find one anywhere near that condition.
Gary I am in awe of how terrific that 1250 looks. I know you have a lot of hours as well as heart and soul in it, but please know I am looking for one just like it. So please don't be offended, I promise I am smiling here, I am a buyer if you should ever consider parting with it knowing it's going to a good home. Thanks for sharing the pictures, as you have a pristine piece! Steve
Gary - you sure did a nice job on your 1250. I am wondering if you have the side panels for the engine enclosure, or plan to add them. The tractor is really designed to have them in place.
From Down Under it looks brand new and is an inspiration for me to get stuck back into my 1000. Congratulations on an amazing job Gary.
