I bought a Haban 405A last summer. It wasn't exactly what I wanted, but I thought it would suffice. It is set up for hydraulic lift and my 900 doesn't have hydraulic lift. I just bought yesterday a 405 with the manual handle lift, so, I'm putting the 405A up for sale. Anyone interested PM me. I'm asking $500.00 to get my money back, but am willing to negotiate.

The symptoms have been treated but the disease marches merrily on. To top things off I bought a G10 yesterday too. Oh please dear God, help me! :confuse:

Do you have pics of that mower that you can post?

If it hasn't been modified by a PO, and it's setup for hydro lift, then it's NOT a 405A. The 405 and 405A both had manual lift as delivered from the factory

To have hydro lift, it would be either a 405 with the hydro lift add on, or a 415 for the large frames.

The lift kit for the 405 used chains, pulleys, other hardware, and attached to the implement lift on the side of the tractor.. The 415 used a series of levers/bell cranks, and attached to the lift points under the tractor..

I have a 405A and I REALLY wish that it WAS setup for hydro lift. :D

That sir, is a 415, which should sell fairly quickly, as they aren't a common as the 405 and 405A. If I were you, I'd delete that listing, and then re-list it as a "415 for Bolens Large Frames".

For your 900, the 'correct' mower would be the 405, which was the earlier model and was belt driven.

However, I'm betting that the 405A, which is PTO driven would probably work as well.

A 405A will look like this, except that it won't have the extra piece bolted onto the front hanger.

I have the manuals for both the 405 and 405A if you need them.

There IS no help...you are doomed!

A year and 1/2 ago I inherited an old 800 with a tiller, and Brinly Dump Attachment...since then, well...look at my sig.

The 405A will work quite nicely on that G10. I have the 414/405A mounted on mine. In either case...I would advise you use a wheel weight on the left rear tire when you have the Sickle-Mo mounted.

If you have a 405A, the one that is PTO driven, there isn't a "Hydro Lift Kit" for it as far as I know.

The only one I'm aware of is the one for the 405 belt driven mower.

In any event, the mower that C130A has is actually a 415, which is for the Large Frames, and not a 405A as he originally posted.

That said, I "think" I may have come up with a way to add "Hydro Lift" to the 405A. It involves some pulleys and some wire cable. I have the parts now, but need warm weather to start putting it together, as I don't have a heated work area.

Was looking through some Bolens papers and found this info

Model 40502 sickle model: with attachment kit 160 pounds $232.00

Model 40504 sickle model: with lift kit (40503) to attach mower to tractor lift system 175Pounds $248.00

So it appears there were some variations in the 405 series

Do you guys have manuals? If not I can upload one from 1965/1966
