If all goes as planned I'll be bringing home my new to me Bush Hog JBII with 3 point hitch Tomorrow :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:

 

I bought it a couple weeks ago from member Titus (Pete) but the weather has made getting it home difficult! It needs some serious TLC and elbow grease, but it will be worth it! :D

 

I have been trying to make a plan as to what I am going to do with it. I will work on getting the engine running but... seeing what Daniel (olcowhand) has done with the Diesel conversions has got me thinking about going that route also! :rocker:

 

 My 1st BH 3.jpg   Here is a picture for now, The tools boxes are off and in Pete's shed. I will take more pics tomorrow.

Seems like hog fever is spreading through the GTTalk staff lounge. I think Daniel may be the carrier. You guys are saving enough of these tractors to make sure they are around for a long time. Congrats Chris.

What a day LOL. I told Titus (Pete) I felt like a Yo Yo today! :hitting_self_roller:

 

Anyway, I am home now and figured I would load a few pics. I still had a lot to do (grocery shopping even) so I just dropped the trailer of at my Dads and will go back during the week.

The last pic is of the 2 AC's that Brian (Texas Deere and Horse) gave me when he made his trip around the Globe this Winter. :D

 

As you see she needs a lot of work, but... it will be worth it!!!!

 

Ok... off to dream about Bush Hogs :rolling: Or make my wish list lol.
