Simplicity Tractor Model for 46" Sickle Bar Mower

Recommended Posts

grayp

I have a Simplicity 46" Sickle bar mower #990785.

The What fits? page says it fits the 3410 to 3416 and the 7010 to 7016.

Will this sickle fit other large frame RBT? As long as it has a cone clutch?

Thanks

I attempted to mount my 7000 series sickle onto my 912. I found a rear attaching point for the support chain would have to be fabricated. I do not want to drill through the tractor frame so that makes it more complicated. I also think changes may be required for the cable pulley bracket.

Ray, I never made the suggestion that the frame isn't strong enough for another hole. I just personally don't want to make permanent modifications to the tractor. No big deal.

I added a length of angle iron bolted to the running boards to provide a mounting point for the chain. Only visible change was the two bolt heads on the running boards. If you use truss head bolts, it isn't really noticeable.

You also need to drill a couple of holes in the frame to mount the cable lift bracket.

Carl, that makes sense as I think the sickle bar was retired when the 7100/900 tractors were released.

Good to know as I've toyed with the idea of mounting mine up to the Deutz 916.
