Managed to get my hand on a 1256, purchased off an auction site. It came with mower deck, front blade, rotavator and rear wheel weights. It was a bit of a long journey, 450 mile round trip, but well worth it as i'm not aware of another one in the UK yet. Am i right in thinking that these have a high and low range like the HT23?

Sorry to inform you, but the 1256 does not have a hi/lo range. like the HT23.

However, it does have the controlled differential which the HT23 lacks.

Bolens giveth, Bolens taketh away :D :D :D

Thank you all for your comments after unloading the tractor tonight the lever does engage and disengage the hydro, much easier for pushing! Wouldn't mind a 1556 now will have to keep my eyes peeled

Nice find Dave. I was sorely tempted but the distance killed it for me. Look forward to seeing more photos of this one.

I think the lever in the last picture that you may think is High/Low is just to engage and disengage the hydro trans to roll the tractor. Or at least that is what mine does. LOL!
Actually that is the Parking Brake.
