That was an awesome find Dan. Sounds like you're filling the Bush Hog stable up pretty good this year! Congrats!


Hey Dan, Maybe you could call it the "Hog pen"...

WOW Daniel, another nice find. Your newest one sure looks in nice original condition! A good clean and polish and I bet she looks pretty nice. Good for you. I quess the national Bush Hog museum will definatley be located in Kentucky! When do we all come down and help you break ground for the museum? We could bring all our tractors and loaders and have the ground work done in no time!

Nice find, Dan! You'll have it running and looking good in no time! Although different in several aspects (but equally strong/ugly/beautiful!!!)...... YOU NEED A SPEEDEX, once your credit card recovers!

Yep Mike, this one is in awfully nice condition. NO new paint for this one at all! As to the museum....it'll have to be my shop added-on shed for now, but who knows later! :rofl2:

I believe S7-D is correct. All my available info doesn't state engine model number, but does state it is rated at 7 1/4HP.

Several years and one ex-wife ago, I had some HORRENDOUS credit card balances. As bad as that was, going through the divorce it came in handy when we were divvying up debt, it kept her from getting so much of my 401k balance. Since then, I committed myself to NEVER build up credit card debt unless it was a legitimate emergency. Luckily, haven't had any of those for over 10 years. AND, although I consider myself "frugal", my newest/best half is CHEAP! We use a credit card to get 5% off on gasoline (Shell), and keep another card that gives a percentage back for purchases made. As we use the card(s), we send a payment to the card company. That way, we NEVER have a card balance, and they don't make a dime off of me! Other than that, we try to stay very strong and resist the urge to purchase certain "gotta-have" items, and I haven't purchased a new vehicle in lots of years. My newest (used purchase) vehicle is 1999! Part of me hopes it dies soon so I can get a pickup, but my better judgement is thankful that it continues to get me where I need to go, reliably! It's a good feeling to know that IF it dies, there's cash on hand to get another vehicle (used, of course!). I wish I had learned that lesson WAY earlier in life.
