My boss of all people saw a cub cadet on the side of the road while making a delivery. So he stops in and says hello. The story of my fathers bush hog comes up, except by accident he said bRush hog. The man selling the cub cadet who had other tractors said he didnt have any brush hogs, but DID have a BUSH hog.

Well long story short, I have another D4-10 now :) Photos Attached

The engine is seized, he said it's been sitting for 6 months, but ran when it was parked. The seat looks to be the original. It also came with the front chrome hub cabs. Thankfully I have a spare D4-7 that has most of the missing parts to get it complete again. I LOVE the thin tires on the front too!

Can I have your boss talk to my boss about the importance of such things?

Great looking Hog, congrats!

Great deal on getting another Bush Hog! Now, I hope that you and your boss get along OK, because you may be his new best friend when HIS tractor addiction gets started! Congrats on the deal and thanks for the pics!

Thanks for all the well wishes guys! Yep my D4-7 is my parts tractor, so those parts will go on this one.

What would you guys say is the best product to free the engine up? I've heard PB blaster, WD 40, regular oil, etc. But what are your opinions?

My boss enjoys golf cars, which is what I do. So as long as I continue to fix them and make him happy, everythings great! :)

But he is having as much enjoyment due to the fact that he had found it as I am owning it.

Why such thin tires in the front? Were those factory?

A little diesel or kerosine, mixed with transmission fluid (1/2 & 1/2) works really good.
