Surprised to see that this brand of sub compact is not discussed more. Have a 1250 FEL and the bottom line...it stacks up as good as any blue, green or orange model out there. Would like to see some more discussion around this steller tractor.

I also have a 1250. I am really happy with mine. I have friends with just about every brand and I wouldn't trade mine for any of them. I have put just over 1000 hr on it.

Bought mine used, 96 with 421Hrs FEL $12K. Machine and FEL are in great shape. Don't think I overpaid. Machine operates fantastic. I have several orange, green and blue dealers in the area, and two MF dealers. Have not had any issues with the machine. Have a 16spd shuttle trans, weighted rear tires. She is a working machine!

I have a 1997 MF 1250 with a 4-in-1 on the front and Woods backhoe on the rear. It didn't come with a 3pt hitch...any idea where I can get one for less than $500. Local dealer want nearly $1000. This tractor has been worth every penny so far.

I have a vague recollection of hearing about what I'd call generic 3ph's that mount on things that ordinarily don't have hitches--ATV's and skid-steers possible. Something like that might be a possibility, $1000 seems like a pretty good price if the tractor needs a complete new 3ph--lift-cover, control valve, arms linkage etc.

I'd expect that less than $1000 means finding a used one, and most salvage yards don't have a lot of compact tractors. I think tractor salvage yards have a parts locator network, similar to auto yards, and a hitch might be located. Slim chance I'd guess, but who knows?

Another guess is that a 3ph may not be compatible with the backhoe, which I'd assume is a sub-frame mount.

Have you tried to locate the original owner. The tractor did come with all of the parts. I'm sure that they were removed when the backhoe was installed. I could do quite a bit of research for $1000.
If that fails, see if you can get the parts as a kit from MF whole goods.
