  Stripped it down this morning and did a bit of painting.

  Put it all back together tonight and found the blade was sticking. Paint had found its way on to the slide. Removed the blade, cleaned it up, replaced and left it running for 15 minutes with a light application of thin oil.

  Maybe try it on some grass tomorrow all being well. It cuts paper. :D

 All set and ready to go. Unfortunately it'll have to wait. Weather has improved so it's back to silaging at my mates farm.

 Finally got round to trying out the sickle bar this afternoon. To say I'm pleased with it is a bit of an understatement. Tried it on the overgrown bridleway past my home. Thick, heavy, long wet grass. Did two passes. One down and one up. 1st gear low box and lowish revs. Result below.

Yes indeeeedyy. And sickle bars make our tractors look "mean" going down the street while people stare, not that I look for trouble or anything lol.

We do still have the 50 inch Wheel Horse Sickle Bar Mower made for the 953/1054 and GT 14 tractors Steve!

 

Here are pics of that tractor and sickle mower.

Lane,

Well, I'm glad my memory hasn't totally gone to hell......yet.

But, I'd like to clarify something.......

What you have are WH sickle bars (of actual unknown manufacture), correct?

 

DJ told me Haban is the Cadillac of WH sickle bar mowers.

I know of two at the moment, I could possibly secure.

Both 414s.....which as I understand, were specifically for the GT 14.

 

I don't currently have a free GT 14 to mount one to, but I'd like to see these jewels preserved, and serviceable.

 

Sickle bar mowers are very specific to certain chores and applications which other implements don't quite fit the role.

Its a plastic guard, as I understand things.

Communicate with Lane about availability.

Yes, I have the plastic guards.  They are $15.00 plus $12.00 shipping 

 

Both of my 701 tractos with sickle bars have the guard
