Sickle bar

Recommended Posts

plastikosmd

Does anybody have any diagrams in regards to how the bar attractions to the tractor. I am converting from hydraulic lift a manual lift sickle. Obviously, The two front attachment points via pins are obvious. How does the mower attach the mid tractor, just a chain?

 

thank u

And here is a pic of the home made hanger bracket on my B-10, it is a little out of adjustment.  The chain length is so that it just brushes the ground or is just off the ground, at least that how mine is set-up.

Thx guys

 

so just chain it up to barely brush

 

I removed the cable lift mechanism and switched it to a manual lift. My goal is to use the Suckle bar and the front brush cutter. I will have to customize the hitch underneath so that both attachments whole attached to the tractor at the same time

 

Let me know if anybody needs the entire cable with mechanism as pictured in carl’s Diagram

I am not sure you  need to customize front attachment mounts.  Try longer pins and offsetting one of them to the outside of the axle mounting points.  Seem to remember someone running a snow blower and a center grader blade in the same set-up.

I found this.

Bolded looks like the right one.

 

I can try to verify when I get home with the belt on my B series.

But I also found this in the B Series Repair Manual, looks like belt length varied somewhat.

 

Which model tractor is this going on, and it it the original mid pto to that model?

Yep!

I am surprised how fast the sickle runs even at 1/4 throttle and small pully 

I feel it could run slower

Had one on my 720 run at slow speed shook the whole tractor pretty good higher rpm smoothed out considerably.  Just my $.02

the larger pulley will have a higher belt speed

Sorry, Greg, I think you have this one backwards.  If the 'driver' pulley is larger than the 'driven' pulley the output speed will be higher but torque power will be lower.  If you want less speed but more torque, put the smaller pulley on the 'driving' end.  With the sickle bar we aren't going for higher torque (we're not, after all, cutting down trees), we just want to slow it down so it doesn't shake itself to death.

      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 
      Paul
