Do you have the cable guide pulley that attaches to the tractor frame?  You will also need to fab up some sort of rear attaching point for the support chain and drill a hole to mount the pulley guide. Josh and CarlH have used these sickles on the 900/7100 tractors so yes it can be done.

First...I'm diggin the artificial turf!  That's a great idea.  My folks put that down under/around the playset they put up for their grandkids in the backyard.  


I will look for more pictures of my 900 series machines with sickle.  I have a writeup somewhere.  Here's the pulley setup.  The type for RBT's won't work on a 900...the orientation of the pulley is all wrong for the available space to mount on a 900.  You need a homebrew or an FDT pulley mount.

Got a pic of how close the skid plate is to the ground?  That bracket is an add on so it might not be needed but lets see the skid clearance first.

      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
