Nice looking Bush Hog. Thanks for sharing. Would love to know the serial number. There are things on this tractor that suggest it must be a really early D4-10 (because it has a lot of the early D4-7 attributes)....the spindle with the steering arm is on the right side of the tractor instead of the left. The missing spacers/fillers between the fender and the floorboards. The transaxle shifter looks more like one from a early D4-7 or T-63. Same as the PTO shifter with the knob instead of a flat piece. The white and red emblem is also an early indicator (if it is original to this tractor since most I have seen were on a D4-7)  No matter what the story is ....always good to see one that's been restored and being shown.

Scott, I think it is a D4-7 with the wrong decals. Everything about it says D4-7. IMO

Agreed....if its not a D4-7 I will be surprised....in a good way! Be neat if BH did just put a 10hp in them to start out the D4-10 series.

In my earlier thread of bush hog company images, in the first post there are pics of an early d4-10 with a tiller. It is the same as this tractor. Same knobs, decals, steering arm, etc so this appears to me to be a very nice early d4-10. I too would like to know the serial number.

Yep. Same weekend every year. Mostly full size tractors and some steam.
