I just got home from a long road trip to pick up a JBII with a loader. The seller also threw in a set of wheel weights, chains and a extra set of rear wheels.

So glad to know you have it home Todd! For the rest of you guys, I've known about this possible buy for a few days. Always good to have another Bush Hog owner among us!

Looks nice Todd. Good heavy loader on there.

BTW, those are sears 3 point arms and lifters. You may want to replace the lifters, that bend in them will straighten out with heavy use... Also, the turnbuckle on the right arm really isn't rated for much more than the implement... Just be careful what you pick up.

Congrats, I bet you already are dreaming of uses for it...

Yea, I think they are sears. That whole mess on the rear is coming off. I will build some cat 0 three point arms for it.

The loader will get some fixin as well. It's coming off soon, to be fitted on my MF1855

Hey, Todd how much for the Sears stuff you are taking off? I could use it to finish out a 3 point. Send me a PM!

Cool tractor/loader. Waiting for pics of the rest of the goodies.

Congrats Todd.

I take you'll be restoring the Hog eventually, after all the rigging is off?

Yea, That's the idea, restore it back to original, or close. The seller said he knows a guy down the road that has another JBII that is taken apart and sitting out. He said he would talk to the guy and see if he wants to sell it as a part machine. If so, I might be taking another drive up there in the future.....?

I will get some more pics for you guys this morning.

Sure, I don't need the sears stuff. You wouldn't happen to have some wide rear rims kickin around. I want to put 26x12's on it. Maybe we could work a trade?

Todd, if you can only find 6 bolt wide rims, the hubs off a Massey 1655/1855 will fit the axle taper & only require grinding a raised lip off the backside of the hubs. That's what I had to put on my diesel JB & also my TJD powered JB, as it's hubs were shot. The diesel JB came with hubs welded to the axles, and welded crooked to boot. I replaced the entire hydro, but had no hubs. If you don't get that parts JB, I will get you exact dimensions & plenty of pics for you to build your 3pt arms.

Great, Thanks Daniel.

Do you have a pic of that the lift is supposed to look like?
