As you know, the HD-12 is a very rare machine. Basically it is a D4-10, but with the JB's hydrostatic system under it, and of course the 12 1/2HP Wisconsin S12D engine, plus the larger rims & tires.
Do you have any attachments...such as mower deck, snow blade, etc?

My dad bought it from a gentleman from diamond mo. he was going to restore it but did not have the time. i have already restored a 1950 John deere b and was currently working on a 1939 "b" and he thought i would have more time to restore it. i really like the tractor.

Love to see many more close-up pics of this HD-12. Mainly the controls area & the dash. I notice the carb & exhaust is on opposite sides of engine than the TR-10D & TRA-10D. Get a pic of the pto end of engine too if you would.

Reason I asked there was 1 listed on Kijiji in Ont. Canada a week or so ago, it didn't last long $200. looked something like the 1 in your pictures, I should have gone after that right away.

They were built in Galesburg, Kansas, just a short distance from the bottom SW corner of Missouri. I've been there & seen the tiny Shaw Museum. I went there to pick up 2 NOS hydro units & differentials. The guy still has more last time I spoke with him! I bought the 2 complete NOS hydro units & diffs for $150.

I've only seen one HD-12 on ebay. It didn't sell either, but was too far a drive for me. That was a few years ago.

Welcome to GTT! That attachment would be a cultivator. As to years, Bush Hog tossed all the manufacture dates in the trash many years ago. Too bad they didn't think ahead. Unless you come across someone with original purchase papers to get an idea on the serial #'s, the only way to dial in pretty close is the manufacture date of the engine. Boy, you have a good bunch of attachments! Are they all Bush Hog brand? PLEASE post those pics!
