Sickle Bar Mower SMS-425

Recommended Posts

@Shynon thank you for the measurements, I think once I can get or make the c bracket, it'll be mostly ready to put on.

The piece that I am missing, is that welded to the ends the bar?  It looks like it is on the other pictures.

If I were you I would pm TIM and get the u bracket he has and grind the weld off and weld a new 3/4" rod on

you need the engagement pedal for the drive belt also

I believe it's the same pedal for all the early sixties tractors power take off should be able to get one on e-bay or the wheel horse show

Karl:   Like Brian (Buckrancher) says the  Sickle Mower you have may be a 50 inch long one with the 1 inch wider plates set up up front for the 953/1054 and GT 14 tractors.   A unique setup for them.    I have seen people use this on the narrower frame tractors and they use a board or metal plate inside or outside the wider frame to  compensate for the narrow frame and wider sickle plates setup.

 

Also  if you look at the  SMS-50 Sickle Bar Mower Manual -there is a better description of the unique  rear plate/frame setup on this  particular model Wheel Horse Sickle Bar Mower.  !


See drawing on Page 3.   The C/U shaped  piece should  still be sufficient to hold on properly for use.

So idiot me never measured, I was given some documents which all mentioned SMS-425.  The Sickle is in fact 50" long!  The inside diameter of the box which mounts to the frame is 6⅝" which is the same as I measured on my 312-8. Are the 953's and GT14's 7⅝"?  The length of the ¾" rod is 22¼" which matches the rod length posted by Shyon, which makes it seem to me that the rear mounting bracket  "fell" off.

 

This is certainly a learning experience for me.

Looks Like you got plenty of help, good luck (my pic, just for fun) Had to play with input pulley size to get proper speed at rocker box.
