Hi
Welcome to GTT.
I'm not up on those hogs, but from what I hear, those HD12's are kinda hard to find.
I'm sure someone will be along soon to answer your questions.

Sure would be great if you could post some pictures. We like pictures.

Enjoy GTT

I've only seen this model with the S12-D Wisconsin engine. The only literature I've seen also just states Wisconsin, but Bush Hog sometimes did take liberties with what was available. Pics would confirm what engine yours has. The books call for type A, but you can simply use Dexron III automatic trans fluid, 4 qt capacity. I have 3 Bush Hog JBI's with the same hydro/diff setup.
Welcome to GTT and to our Bush Hog community! Anxiously await your pics! You have a hard to find Bush Hog model there! Wherebouts do you live?

There IS one other GTT member who owns an HD-12, but he's not gotten it home yet, and he hasn't told announced his purchase just yet. I'd be shouting from a rooftop if I bought one!!

You even polished ______'s tractor? If I remember right, you already repaired some wiring on ______'s tractor!
Sorry we're crashing in on your post Chris, but your HD has got us fired up again on ______'s HD-12. :D

If it's hydrostatic, then it's an HD-12. It's the only hydrostatic model with identical tin to the D4-10 (possible exception is an HW-12, which I have never even seen a pic of). Your pic won't enlarge when clicked on, so hard to get a good look.
I have the three JBI tractors, a V4-6, two D4-10's, and a T-63. Here is my D4-10 I just finished restoring a couple months back.

I think that's a really small picture.
Lookin forward to more.

Oh yeah, sorry about hijackin your thread, but when it comes to HD12's, there's just a bit of pent up interest.
