You know, I never even head of Bush Hog before forums.  Don't think I've seen only a couple either. Now on this site there are lots of them, and from all over country!   So, what's the big secrets all the time when one comes up???   They look tough, but Ugly to me. (And I think Speedex are nice,ha!).  Must be nobody wanted them and they folded, but NOW everyone wants them and are Hoarding them!  To Each his own, I guess! 

 

I had not heard of them until joining this site, then when I saw Daniels at plow day and those swing out boxes, man they look cool.

Grumpy for me, Will's MF with the sickle mower got me interested in GT's. Then when I saw Daniels restored D4-10 I had to have one. To me it was the best looking GT I had ever seen. The reason for being secretive is they tend to be that rare, especially certain models and implements. Till the tractor or implement is paid for and on my trailer I keep the info close. Never can tell when a seller may change their mind. I have a goal to collect pretty much all of the models Bush Hog made and all the implements they made. I am about done with the finding, sure something will come up that is better than one I already have and I may want to upgrade. But I am out of room and money.
I am not sure why they closed. I think these Bush Hogs were fairly expensive for the time. A new JB like Daniels would list for $1500 retail in 1969. You could almost buy a new car for that type of money. Maybe they were too high for the market.
Call me crazy, but nothing more exciting than finding one of these hard to find implements or GT's!

I am heading out the door to finalize the deal. Here is a picture to one piece of the puzzle. Good guess guys, yes it's a dump cart. I only know of 4 and I will own 2 of the 4. My first one does not have the rear gate.

She is not perfect, missing a few pieces. But a nice original JB-1
Really nice people I bought it from. Pretty much been in with 2 family members. Motor was rebuilt by a machine shop and probably has little hours on it. Tires are new. Will not be able to work on it till next weekend. Have a lot going on at work right now.

Scott, Welcome to the JB famiy, that one is in great shape and it even has the seat cushions on it still. Were you able to drive it on the trailer? Is the blade a Brinly or BH?

 

Congratulations Buddy!! :thumbs:

I first thought they were changed by the owner but I have a picture of an early HD that has these exact rims on them. I think they bought the Carr and jb together and the larger diameter wheels were put on to better match it up to the JB

Did not drive it on. Has been sitting a while and I did not have time.
I think it is a homemade blade. There is a disc on the back of the trailer. I do believe the aframe 3pt hitch on the disc is an original bush hog piece. Thanks! Glad to be member!

Good for you brother! Those looks great. You need to take a group photo of them all together now :) I'm very happy that you found your JB1 finally!
