I need any bush hog owner who is willing to submit to me their gt's information. Below is what I am asking for.....you can provide contact information or not...that is your choice.....PM me with the information.

 

 

Info needed:

 

MODEL NUMBER 

SERIAL NUMBER

SERIAL PLATE TYPE -  GALESBURG KS OR SELMA, ALA LISTED ON PLATE??

MOTOR TYPE

MOTOR SERIAL NUMBER

CONTACT INFO - AT YOUR DESCRETION

 

ANY OTHER PERTINENT INFO THAT MAY HELP WITH DATING.

 

I will post at some point a list for all to see what has been collected.

 

thanks,

 

Scott Culbreth

Over the weekend, hopefully I'll get the time.  I will attach pertinent pics with each set of numbers.  Like with the JB series, those with hood cutouts for the air filter....early models.

Anyone out there with a T-63, I would love to get your serial number and motor serial number. This was the first GT model made by/for Bush Hog and my earliest price list is 1965....but I am pretty sure it was 63 when the first started selling them.......the more T-63 info I can get ....the better chance we can get closer to finding the earliest time frame in which they were sold.

 

Thanks,

Sorry Scott, I've not had/taken the time to get my info gathered.  My T-63 engine dates it to be a 65 model, I do know that much.

Never seen one. You are sure it is not a "1"?

I'm going to pick up a D4-7 soon, and I was told it's an I, although I believe it's a one.

It wouldn't surprise me that they substituted a letter "Ifor a 1, simply because they lost/damaged the number 1 stamp, or misplaced it.  I am certain it means a number 1.

Brian, I figure you have the very 1st D4-12 to have been made.  I've never seen anything of that era that started with a simple "1".   That is simply awesome to have a first ever built tractor of a series.

Hopefully we can get enough serial numbers to prove it was the first......the few d4-12 I have seen all had serial number in the 100's. Interesting since it was built in the late 60's and all the other previous models had 4 digit serial numbers. Even if it was the second and 100 was the first.....a very good chance it is the earliest surviving model. The D4-12 is a pretty rare model. Nice one to have in a Bush Hog collection, and one that so far has alluded me.

IDK if this is any help at all, but I found a Serial Number at the Show over the weekend.

 

No one was there any time I went past, yesterday, gone today when I got there.

 

Saw this:

 

PICT0019.JPG PICT0020.JPG PICT0021.JPG PICT0022.JPG

It reads:

D4-7                  747I

 

Now I have no doubt it was a "1", but I'm telling ya, I looked like an "I"

 

Anyways, it seems another one has gone to the great beyond.  Sorry to report her demise.
