Met a great guy yesterday, who I had the great fortune of contacting me about his bush hog D4-10 and implements his father had passed down to him many years ago. He was interested in selling and asked if I knew of anyone interested in buying them. I immediately responded yes, I would be interested. Pictures were sent so a value could be determined and a fair offer was made and accepted. I will share the history of it later. Here are a few pictures- one implement is in side the cab- it is one I did not have and only heard of a few that have one.

The three pieces were originally all together as a display in a local hardware store. They never sold so the owner took them home to use. The gentleman s father was a friend of the owner and at some point he bought all three pieces.his father died many years ago and he inherited it. I love these kind of finds where I know where it came from and where it has been! To me these finds are special. Still traveling so get pictures tomorrow.

Titus the tractor is not as pretty as the D4-7 you picked up so don't want anyone to expect too much out of it, but.......it has a hydraulic lift on it that the owner designed and its a pretty clean design. No front PTO since the pulley off the crank runs the pump. Gotta get back on the road Incorrect paint color- wrong seats-but I like the thought of that hydraulic lift picking up those implements

Scott, many thanks again for transporting the plows back and forth between Brian and myself.

 

Guys, Scott's got a nice tractor and some nice implements too out of his deal, I think you will all be happy (and drooling)  when he has a chance to post some pics.

 

Scott, while any day would have worked to drop that plow off, I'm glad you took time to stop today so I could see your haul in person.  Thanks also for sharing some of the plow day stuff with me too.  Look forward to seeing you another day.

 

Howard
