Hello, Daniel invited me to join your group. I am the new owner of a JBII w/ Loader. I've posted a bunch of pictures to my Photobucket account, so feel free to have a look and let me know what you think. This tractor has seen better days, but according to Daniel, it's a pretty rare find. Cheers!

Looks not too bad, I checked out your pictures and I see you got the 2 side boxes there also.
One things for sure any Bush Hog garden tractor around here is rare especially with a loader on it. :thumbs:

Welcome to GTT. Hastings eh. Heck we're almost neighbours. Parry Sound.
You've come to the right place. Quite a few avid Bush Hog collectors here, and
a whole bunch of really nice people.
Enjoy the site, and keep us updated on your treasure. I almost pulled the trigger
on that one, but decided to focus on my current long list of projects.
Will

The right side box houses the battery, so more often than not, that box is eaten from battery acid. A plastic battery tray would go a long way preventing that, and I figure they came with one surely, but got tossed or broken over the years.

Hi, I just bought this Bush Hog from my buddy, John, he suggested I join this forum. I'd never seen one of these before but it seems well built. I'm looking at doing a restoration, so I'm thinking this is going to be a long process. I'll be looking for any input I can get. I've already looked at the manual, it looks very complete. I also have a Case 444 that I did a repower on with a V-twin B & S Vanguard. I look forward to your responses, thanks in advance.
