They have surprised me with extra's before, so I would not be surprised if there's stuff not in the pics, but I'm also not counting on it.


Try to get an employee name badge. That'd be one for the top drawer.

Road construction south Nashville on I65 and bridge work on I65 where interstate crosses Tennessee river at Decatur Alabama. Be safe on your trip and hope it goes well.

That's very nice of them to offer you the parts at a good price and a tour to boot. Enjoy your trip and I am look forward to the photos of the assembly line and the parts. Since it's pretty much complete, you could call it a special edition portable Bush Hog tractor. Some assembly required!

Looks like a great deal Daniel. Did you get any rain after we left.We drove through some on the way home. 2hr. and 40min. with a short pit stop. We just had a quick shower here, it didn't last ten min.


Ended up with a light shower, road got wet, but not under overhanging trees. Best chances tomorrow though! :thumbs:

I think that distinction belongs to Bob Simmons, but thank you Scott! I sure wish Bob did computers....I'd love him to be a GTT member!

I think what you're talking about is the cast front hubs painted yellow. never seen any Bush Hog front wheel weights, and no mention of them in any paperwork I've ever seen.
