Pictures from my trip- long 3 days! Glad to be back home!

From what I know, we only know of 4-5 of the T-42A rotary mowers and 3-4 of the ST-32 tillers. If someone has either let me know- would like to figure out how many of these were made as well.

Note the green color on the tines of the tiller- my aerator's tines are the same green color so these tines are original.

Cultivator is not bush hog but well built.

Scott- Rotory mower is super straight! Must have been used very little or in smooth grass only landscape.Just unbelivable.See BH has front grill,did it have logo too?

No logo/emblem but I got an extra- missing headlights too, but I got them as well. But I am running low on lights. Went out with 3sets and came back with none. Got to see what's left, I may only have 1 light set left I can sell.

I got o check my manuals tonight, but looks like both implements are complete. That would be good news since any thing missing would be hard to replace.

Once I find the time, I'll post up close pics of my tiller components (apart for restoration at the moment), and you'll be amazed at the differences between my earlier ST-32 tiller & yours.  They are completely different except for the gearbox, and the 2 drive chain assembly drop boxes.

Yea, nice meeting you Scott. Glad you made it home back safely.

I never realised how well built the Bush hog's are, really nice old tractors.

My buddy's uncle has 2 off them, trying to find out exactly what. He thinks they are both 7 hp

Thanks Marty! Nice to meet you as well! Would love to find out what you uncle has and especially get the serial number info, etc.....who knows he may have the first one built!! 7hp would be a T-63 or D4-7 if gear driven.....but could be a V series as well.

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


Howard I glad it worked out that we could meet to pick up and deliver the plow, but most importantly, I am glad I got to meet you and spend one time talking tractors etc. ( thanks for the breakfast and for helping me get the tiller out of the truck box and on to the trailer!)

Scott, First off it was GREAT to see you again. Wow what a nice Hog and Attachments you got in that deal. :thumbs:  I know I had room on my trailer for all of it, but you never left sight of your trailer for me to get it all on my trailer!! :D

 

Thanks so Much for hauling the plows back and forth for Howard and I, I truly appreciated it. :wave:

I only was in.....NC-WVA-KY-IN........never mind I went to look at a new idea garden center in Lexington, then went to Indiana (only about 30 miles north of Louisville) to pick up the bush hog stuff, then down to see Bob Simmons to talk Bush Hogs, then back to Etown to spend the night.....I rolled in about 11:30 that night and it was raining most of that evening......(trailers, darkness, and back roads with no shoulders are not fun I might add) Good but long trip! Hanging out with Bob for a couple of hours was a treat- wish I could have spent the day!!
