I am curious to find out what all model garden tractors that Bush Hog made over the years? I know you don't see the Bush Hogs too often and while it would be cool to have one of each I can only imagine how long it would take to do that.

Lets see....T-63, V3-6, V4-6, V4-7, D4-10, D4-12, HD-12, HW-12, JBI, and JBII

I have a T-63, two D4-10, three JBI's, and a V4-6. Then a parts D4-10. Also I have two snow blades for D4-10's, and two for JBI's, and the D4-10 snowblower courtesy of member Ducky!
Yep, I'll get more when I can, but I'd only try for models I don't have unless the price was too good to pass up on a duplicate model. I have NEVER laid eyes on an HW-12 or even heard of anyone that has one.

I know there is also a D4-7 which I have and that is the only reason I know LOL. So Bush Hog made a V4-7 and a D4-7 garden tractor?

I know what else I want to ask. What all implements did they have that would run off of the rear pto that is on some of the models like the D4-10?

The T-63, and all the D series have the auto style direct drive clutch, coupled to 2 speed with hi/lo for 4 forward, 2 reverse speeds. The V3 has variable sheave with 3 speed forward, single reverse. The V4 was variable sheave with 4 forward speeds/single reverse. The HD is hydro just like the JB series, but on the D style chassis. The HW evidently was pretty much the same as the HD, but I have no true info other than specs, and the specs are the same as the HD.
T-63 came with Wisconsin, the V series were Tecumseh, the D came with both Tecumseh & Wisconsin, and the JB's were all Briggs cast iron.

There was a T-42A (trailing rotary bush hog) with 42" cut.

And the St-32 tiller, which I have, but needs gearbox repair. Sadly, that is not a Bush Hog cultivator in the pic. That is Sears. The tiller uses twin chain drives to the tine shaft, and the gearbox main output shaft is broken. When I get around to it, I'll machine a new one.

Wow, I would love to have the rear rotary bush hog. I have a feeling it would take quite a few years to find one of them.

I've only seen the factory restored one I posted the pic of. I do however have a S4242 3-point lift bush hog for using on the JB's. I think the HD & HW also had optional rear pto, so they would be able to use this rotary cutter also. I had to put new bearings & seals in this one's gearbox, and re-machine the shaft where the seal ran as it was pitted badly. I machined it down to fit the next size seal.

I paid $1200 for this JBI, with the tiller, Sears cultivator, and the S4242 3pt rotary cutter.

The tractor wouldn't run day of pickup, but took only an hour to fire her up. She runs like new...NO smoke at all. I was very happy with the purchase, mainly because of the 3pt mower!

Very cool Daniel. Thanks for posting it.

I am guessing Bush Hog didn't have much for literature did they? I am sure they did to some extent but not near what some of the other companies did?

I also have 2 decks for the D4-10, and a deck for a JB, but it's in rough shape. No rust through, but gearbox stuck as well as the spindles. I may never get around to fixing it, but I hope to.

Were they sold as a small tractor for commercial use such as for golf courses and landscaping companies or were they in the residential market as well? I don't think they had a presence in this part of Canada. I've never seen one in person or for sale here.
