Simplicity Sickle Bar

Recommended Posts

I was to an auction yesturday and bought what appears to be a Simplicity sickle bar attachment. It seem to be complete but I'm still not 100% sure it's Simplicity. There are no markings on it however it has the original paint and it's darn close to Simplicity orange and the drive pully seems to line up closely to the pully on my landlord. I have no idea how it attaches to the tractor. Does anyone have a manual or close up picture of one so I can be sure it's for my tractor?

Simplicity and AC sickle bar mowers were made by Haban Mfg. of Kenosha, Wisconsin. Haban also made these mowers for John Deere and perhaps other brands. Haban makes Deere's snowblowers as well.

So it is possible that your mower was made for another make tractor. One sure way to tell is to look at the front mounting holes. If they line up to your Simplicity then it will problably work. I have a sickle bar for my B-112 AC. My mower will not fit on the newer models, such as my 712 due to the footrests. I do not know if Simplicity offerd the Haban mowers on the newer models. I do not have any books. I could take some pictures and post them on this site if you still need help. Let me know. Les

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
