I was doing a search, on the net for HD12, and all these browers windows came popping up on my screen, and
they where all from adult sites. I did manage to capture this one image.:D

Chris, does yours look like this?

Chris,
Congrats on being a new owner of a Bush Hog. They are really great machines and on the rare side and prices on them are still affordable for the most part. Parts are not easy to find though.

Yes, Chris, I'm waiting with Dan as well.:smile1:
That picture I posted, was actually looking out my back door. So, you can see why I too would really
like to see some shots of your HD12.
Oh yeah, it was brought to my attention, that, that Massey is aggresive. Well, what happens in the field, I guess,
is what mother nature intended to happen.:D

I can't make much out with the small pics, but does look to be an HD12. Does it have the ID plate on the back side of the dash tower, next to the tunnel cover on the right? I can't make out the engine well enough to ID it. But the front rims are not original as they would be larger. The rear PTO assembly has been removed. What you have left is just the optional drive shaft stub that used to power the PTO gearbox assembly that bolted to the rear chassis. The 3pt lift is home brew, not Bush Hog. The headlights are also not original. All this really hurts the resell value, but still a great little tractor.

Yes, it is the OE hydro & diff...if empty 4qts Dexron III. Not sure if it was ever equipped with a dipstick for the diff, but easy to know your level, as you just take the plug out of the elbow on the right side of the diff case & fill till level to top of the elbow. I would still love to see some larger pics from all around her. Where do you live in case you ever decide to sell it.
