Some of you may remember a few weeks ago I posted about a Bush Hog on Ebay in N. Tx. I was able to make the deal on it, for a lot less then his BIN price. Finally got to go pick it up last Monday and look it over a little this week. To my surprise, I think this is one of the best original D4-10s I have ever seen. I only got to spot clean a couple places to see how it will clean up.

As I first saw it.

The hood has a few scratches, but is very shinny, you can see the reflection on it.

both rear and one of the front tires have stayed up for a week so for and they are the original tires, the 4th one is going to need possible a tube.

Looks to be in super shape. I have to ask though, what size diesel are you putting in it? :smilewink:
Chris, This one will stay with it's original WIS. 10HP engine. But stay tuned as I do have something else in the line up for a Diesel re-power.

Very nice find Brian! :thumbs: It looks like it will clean up really well. Do you have a correct engine for it, or are you going to have to find one?

Hey Matt, I've missed you around here. Hope all is well with you down south. I have part of a TR-10D that was in it and threw a rod, the owner parked it maybe years ago and never got around to fixing it. I also have a TRA-10D out of a little later D4-10 that I might stick in it. I really want to put the correct engine in it.

Also I wondered about the rear end. Why are there only 2 gears in both high and low range?
Mike. Bush Hog designed it that way, why I have no idea. It has 1st, 2nd and reverse on one shaft and also has another shaft that is the high and low gears. I does give you 2 speeds in reverse also.

That looks good, Brian! I take it you are going to leave it as a survivor?

Brian, ALL the knobs are original on that dash. In fact, I don't think there is a non OE part on the whole machine other than the metal bolted to the frame! That's gonna clean up to be beauty of an original! Heck, it even still has the rubber welting on the dash tower top that the hood rests on!

That looks fantastic as a survivor! No question about the proper color. Great save!

Very nice, Brian. Every year a machine like that gets rarer and rarer. Glad to see that there will be at least one looking like it did!
