I have recently been emailing back and forth with a customer service rep at Bush Hog hoping to find more leads on parts. She mentioned her son collects Bush Hog garden tractors and that her husband was going to pick up an HD-12 with a loader her son just purchased. She said they lived in central AL. I'd say there's a good chance it is the same one. That definitely would have been a neat tractor to have! Even when you miss out on a deal, it's still nice to know what happens with it.
