Sickle bar mower

Recommended Posts

The rear pto tractors should be able to use this. I will try one when i get the larger frame tractor. http://www.befco.com/products/hayequipment/sicklebar.html Sickle bar mowers 15-75HP (11-56KW) 540 rpm Befco's double action sickle bar mowers come complete with an adjustable top link that ensures a sharp clean cut. The double action sickle bar allows for a maximum working speed of up to 10 mph. Simple but tough construction along with a heavy duty P.T.O., weight compensation spring, transport blade protection and a safety release which protects the unit from obstructions in the field, all provide for a unit that will give years of trouble free service. The hydraulic lift for easy transport and storage is standard on all Befco sickle bar mowers. With the capability of mowing 90° up 70° down (45° down on BSB-005) along with the low horsepower requirements make the Befco sickle bars capable of handling jobs that are not recommended for conventional disc mowers.

If you mean the Powermax/720-style tractors, don't they have 1000 RPM PTO's in them instead of the normal 540 RPM ones?

I read the sunstars had a the pto engine output shaft speed of 3450 the pto was (is) electrically clutched. But peerless had a reducer for it. I dunno about the 620 or the 4041. But i saw a 4041 up close and it didn't look any different than a standard pto.
