One of the guys on chat last night asked me about seeing a Bush Hog D4-10 garden tractor with an FEL. It was posted on another forum & outfit was in Rhode Island, but the guy didn't share anything but the pics, as he's trying to buy it. It is a Monkey Wards loader and not an original Bush Hog loader. Still would be a great one to have regardless. I'll let you know if he buys it & post more info if available.

That looks like a direct fit Dan! Maybe Bush Hog built some units for Monkey Ward?

No, I think they had their own loader, but someone did a good job fitting this one. I found a pic of this same tractor on my yahoo Bush Hog site. The guy's name is Erik. This pic is 3yrs old, so looks like he's not used it in some time, going by the pics above.

Well, after some researching, or really asking someone with a lot of original Bush Hog sales brochures, I found out that Bush Hog did NOT make their own loader, as they used the "Ark" loader company to be used on the Bush Hog line.

Daniel, does the Bushhog use it's own hydro sys to run FEL, or is it driven by pto to pump?

Thanks, George

Dedicated hydraulic pump. Other than the HD12, HW12, and the JB, the rest are straight trans. Even on the hydro models, the FEL was powered independently.

The FEL on my JBI is run from front PTO & is built by ARK.

I wonder how the " Front mounted boom " pictured in the brochure attached ? Did the bucket come off ?

Yes, the bucket has to come off & attaches at same points as bucket. I don't know of a single boom in existence.
