The shifter slots doesn't look like the picture you posted.
The bottom one is wider than the top but equal on both sides of neutral, if I remember right.
Need to get this tractor home.


Ha Casey! :D As Doug remembers, this makes it a V3 model for sure. The ID tag will verify.

One more gear is not a lot of throw, and I see just enough throw for that forth gear! I am anxious to know what that ID says myself, one of us will be rong, and I sure as heck hope it isn't me LOL.

I remember the tire size if that helps
Fronts were 16x6.50/8
Rears were 1 at 23x8.50/12, the other 23x10.50/12

Looks as though maybe the rims have all been swapped out, or at least painted. OE were all yellow. Sizes would be 4.80x4/8 or 16x6.50/8 (optional), and rear were 23x8.50/8. Common lug patterns, so could be swapped from brand to brand.

It's all in jest, of course. We're all that way about something. I suppose that's why we're all here, huh?

At the angles, it's hard to truly tell. The difference is a lot from 3 to 4 speed. Pic taken of fuzzy pdf off the monitor screen.

Daniel, you need the PrintKey 2000 v5.10. That will let you take screen shots so they aren't so fuzzy. And put a towel over the keyboard to sop up the drool.

The fuzzy is the actual pdf Bush Hog Corporation sent me. The pics on pdf are very fuzzy & some you really can't make much at all out on. But better fuzzy than none at all!

Went to look at this thing today, never seen one before, this is the 2nd Bush Hog tractor I've seen in 1 week.
Don't know much about these tractors at all and I don't know whats suppose to be on this one or not.
It has a Tecumseh HH80 engine, I think a 3 speed plus reverse transmission, 4 position Variable handle some kind of PTO hand clutch off the crank, a rear lift bracket looks like a sleeve hitch without the tube for the pin, and 4 brand new tires with nibs on them.
Tractor has no attachments for it but came with a plow blade that was modified to fit the tractor.
The young lad I bought it off of was using it for tractor pulls.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]25472[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]25473[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]25474[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]25475[/ATTACH]

So I ask
What is this?
What features or attachments did it have?
When was it made?



THAT is 1 cool machine Doug, way to go.. Nice find !!!

I think Doug & I have a deal already made on this Bush Hog! But it'll still be there for a while to see anyway.

Picked it up today and it turns out to be a VE4-7 according to the ID plate
Some pictures.

I tried the shifter again, pic shows gear shift in neutral, if I pull back toward the seat, then to the right there's 2 gears there, really hard to tell as the shifter is really sloppy.

I guess in yrs gone by somebody put in a 8hp Tecumseh and repainted the hood to match.

I don't think my Masseys have seen a Bush Hog before and don't know what to make of it.

Yes a deal has been made for the Bush Hog, it needs to go to a collector and olcowhand's the one.
