Those Hein Werner hydraulic pumps were used on just about every brand it seems!
Were those optional or standard for these tractors?


Neither. This was made by the original owner. But he did s nice job. What other tractors used this pump?

I'm glad to see more D4-12s coming onto the radar. What haven't you seen on a D4-10? Did you mean D4-12? And most importantly of all, what are the serial numbers?

This D4-12 has a factory bent front axle. I have never seen a bent axle on any of the other D series tractors.
This ones serial number is 226. The range of serial numbers I have collected so far are from 101 to 283.

Good looking tractor and nice find with the grill guard. Maybe the bent front axle was for larger belly mount attachments, mower deck ???

That is what I was thinking to- would make more room for a larger deck.

I notice yours doesn't have the 2nd high/low shift lever under the seat like mine and Peter's has, strange to say the least.

I think where your high low shifter was located is now part of the hydraulic lift. I hope to do some work on it today, will look closer then.

No spark so I am betting the solid state is not any good and that is why it has been sitting in a shed the past 20 years. But the D4-10 I bought with the wheel weights, this summer, has good spark, so I will take the solid state ignition off of it.
Had a flat rear tire and swapped it out for a good one I already had. Went back to put the rim back on and it would not fit.......then noticed the hub had been welded at some point. Lucky for me, I had a nos hub with studs on the shelf so it was a quick fix.
