Sickle bar!

Recommended Posts

kind of. Simple welding can repair anything....I have found that out by ripping apart other folks stuff. I heard someone here call it "farmer genious". If you or anyone are interested, I have about a 36" section of broken bar that I have been holding on to (for no particular reason) that you could cut to size and weld to that bar.

BTW, is it for an FDT or an RBT?
This one is for a FDT. The sickle bars that fit a RBT have a planetary gearbox on them because the pulley speed of the cone clutch PTO is faster than the bottom pulley speed on the PTO of a FDT. There was one on eBay a while back that someone had adapted with an extension to the hanger and a jackshaft that reduced the RPM from the BGB PTO. The price for one of these can vary allot. I guess it just depends how close the seller is to a buyer who wants to pay allot. I live in North East Ohio and got one off eBay in April for $146.50. Everything was in great shape, no broken blades or teeth, it looks barely used. After I got it, I was looking it over and doing some research and I learned the difference between the PTO speeds. All I had was 7010, 7014s, 7016, and a 7119 for tractors. The bar I just got a GREAT deal on was useless to me. So I managed to get a 2110 (off eBay) in May for $167.51. That project is almost done but has a few more things before it is complete.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
