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!
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
