Got a Loader and a Bush Hog for the 140

Postby BigMatt » Sat Nov 26, 2011 2:39 pm

I went to KY last Saturday and traded for the Fast Hitch and the FH Bush Hog. Then I went to Columbus, OH for the 1000 Loader. The loader guy also had the missing piece to my fast hitch and a few extra headlights.

I was able to put on the fast hitch throughout the week, but I had to wait until yesterday to put on the loader.

Word to the wise - get a second guy to help you put on the loader. It always seemed like I needed to be in two places at the same time.

Any way, here are the pics. I am going to keep this one in working clothes for a while.

Very nice! Is the bush hog a IH model or modified for the fast hitch?

The bush hog is Bush Hog brand. It looks like it was modified a long time ago.

Always had a place in my heart for 140's. That is surely a nice one. You will like the loader. You are right, that loader is a beast.

Great tractor, enjoy it!

FWIW I think Hardee still makes a 4' bush hog with fast hitch point.

I will be looking for a bush hog to replace this one after a while. It works ok, but is has a few problems and isn't the prettiest one out there.

I have a 160, with three point hitch. I am thinking a 148 would be perfect for a 140.
