Those are great finds. I never had even seen or heard of a bush hog till I joined here.

Alright, got them!

LOVE THEM! The character they have is amazing. Not only that but I also got a lead on a JB series for $100, going to pick that up next weekend, along with another D series.

I think I've found the honey hole of bush hogs.

When taking some photos, is there anything special you all want to see on the D4-12?

What is the address of this "honey-hole"? :smilewink: Too far for me anyway, but glad you're saving them! JBI or JBII?
Nothing special with the 12 pics, just more!

I think he said it was a II series. I took a quick peek at it. How can I tell? Does it just say I or II on the hood? Then he said something about having a 6 lug pattern one. He has 4 of them.

He's getting the snowblower attachment for me, and the hitch. I'll upload some photos soon.

6 lug is a JBI with 14hp Briggs. The JBII is 5 lug and 12hp Briggs. Wow, you did find a honey hole! The JBII also has smaller wheels/tires than the JBI. Fronts on the II are 16x6.50x8, rears 23x1.50x12, while the bigger JBI has 18x8.50x8 fronts, and 26x12x12 rears.

Just a FYI.... Looked at my D4-10's today. I had 1 with the foot pedals with the waffle pattern. The rest of them had flat metal pads. Must be an earlier model, since all my T-63's have the waffle type pads as well.

I think all my D4-10's have the waffles. My V4-6 does not.

I was looking at the plow and it's fully functional. I did find a tag on it, tough to read due to its age, but I believe it's a sears & roebuck model.

When I got these, the story is he has the D4-12 for a long time now, the D4-10 his friend with him works for the local scrap yard and saved that for him for parts. Nice friend!

Both engines turn over by hand and both have the clutches attached. The wiring is a total nightmare, but nothing I haven't tackled before.

The ID plate is a later version, so I lean toward it being a 1970 or so model. 69 at least. The 12 is the best of course, so maybe you'll need to use the 10 as a parts tractor.

Great find! PTO clutches are a plus! Will be pretty cool to own the 12. Did I see right, 3 digit serial numbe?

Correct, D4-12 # 162 :)

That D4-10 is going to be a parts tractor for my D4-7 and other 10. The 7 I need the engine for, since it's a TRA-10D engine, I need to check the crankshaft for the OD on the hole for the clutch, etc to see what will fit, etc.

The D4-12 is missing the PTO or possibly it was removed. Notice the lever missing? And the plate covering the back? I will see what it needs for wiring and see what I can do to get her to crank over at least. They will need oil changes and I will check the rear gear oil today after work, get that all swapped out.

Couple of great starting points there. They both look like they could be saved, barring internal tranny issues on one.

The plow is a Sears. I think it's for the Custom series by the hitch. There will be 2 holes (about 5/8") in the bottom angle for the frame. That was for an additional support rod needed on the custom series Sears.

:thumbs: gotta love the look of the BH's :thumbs:
