Sickle Sheath

Recommended Posts

Dutch
We (should) all know sickle mowers are dangerous to use, but at least we're sitting on the tractor seat and paying attention. My sickle mower seemed to be the most dangerous when in the shop. I'm NOT paying attention and walk into those sharp rock guards. Was worried about other people in the shop, and my eyes. So I made a simple sheath by cutting a 3/4" section from a 48" length of 1 1/2" PVC pipe. A bungee cord makes for easy on / off.

I have the metal one that came with mine, but it's the only part of the whole sicklebar that has any rust on it. I like yours better, and it won't rust.....Now, when are you going to build a pvc front grill for your tractor :)....Art

Art, I don't have to make a PVC grill............. the original grill & headlights are in the garage waiting to be reinstalled after the tractor is painted. The tractor will be painted IF I can ever stop using it for a few days (maybe this winter?).

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
