As most of you know, KennyP. picked up 2 of the 3 BH D4-10 I have bought up by him. Here is some info on them now along with photos.

 

The Ugly,

Serial # 8495 has been cut up and had a Kohler K-241 fitted into the frame. It has no front PTO or engagement handle. It does have rear PTO and engagement handle, also it appears to have good AG's on it. Someone has fit another brand blade to it I think.

Congrats on the score Brian! Hopefully some day I can join the club!

 

I just think the BH's have some of the best lines. I would have to say if a GT was picked as a work of art it would have to be a BH.

Burl, Your post the other day made me get these picked up. I bought these back in January in your area, just haven't had time to get them picked up. When I saw your post, I had to call the guy and make sure he hadn't sold them out from under me. I was a little nervous til I to talked to them and hear they were still there. :D

The thing about rescuing a good GT we go backwards from the Ugly, to the Bad & then to the Good. Nice projects!

I didn't realize you were that close or I would have called you when I picked them up!

Good to see you got them. I kept looking at the muffler guard and thought it was different from any I had seen, but then I saw in another picture it is on backwards...still having the muffler guard and grill emblem are bonuses! Now you just got to do a "Burl" and restore it in time for Daniels plow day! :-) You got two weeks to get it done! ( I wish I could get one done that fast!)

Burl, At least within a day in not the same day. Did you look these 2 over very well by chance?

I love the character 9397 has. The right amount of rust, wear on the paint and all around character. If it were mine, I'd leave her just the way she is.

Peter, I may just do that, I don't like to restore them a trailer queen tractors. I want to play with them also.
