    Dueling Sicklebars


    Check out Les Kreifels' pair of VERY desirable sicklebars . . .

    Simplicity 7016 and AC B-112 each with sickle bar mowers.   I believe that the one with the handle to be made in 1961 or 1962.   The one on the B-112 I believe to be made in 1968 or 1969.

    These mowers where made by Haban Corp. of Racine, Wisconsin.   Haban supplied these mowers for   several different makes of garden tractors.   Haban spent their last years making tow behind rotary mowers, pull behind tillers, and snowblowers and other equipment for John Deere.   They just recently went out of business.   No one I have heard of has been able to locate sections(1.5") or guards for these mowers.   The sections for the "Jari" and "Troy Bilt" sickle bars mowers can be made to fit, but the sickle bar must be re-drilled to accommodate the different rivet position.   The rivets are also of a special size.   If anyone in the club can provide any more information on these mowers, or any sources for parts, please let us know.
