Gents, I'm a "Bolens guy" who knows almost nothing when it comes to Wheel Horse tractors, and need a little help.

I have a Haban 414 Sickle-Mo that, according to the data base I have, is for the following tractors:
Charger-10 & 12, Raider-10 & 12, Electro-12, and GT-14.

Would any of the following tractors have the same mounting points as the above?
753 , B-80 , Raider 9 and C-111.

The 414 Sickle-Mo hangs on the front axle, and uses a 90 deg. gear box that mounts under the frame of the tractor to change the belt drive to splined PTO drive.

I assume that this is an aftermarket attachment that was said to fit the above models.

I'm not intimately familiar with any of the models above, but I went through the interchange list that I have and of the 4 models listed, only the Raider 9 had a factory sickle bar available for it and the model number was different than the model number for the sickle bar that fit the others that you listed. That said, it doesn't mean that it wouldn't be the same unit with some minor changes and a "new" model number designation. I wish I could offer more help than that, but I'm sure that someone will be along with more info soon.

This wouldn"t have been a "Factory" attachment.

Haban made Sickle bar mowers for most of the GTs at the time: Bolens, Deere, IH, Sears, Case, etc

I figured as much, but the interchange list suggests which models Wheel Horse felt would run a sickle bar satisfactorily. I believe that if it would mount up, the C-111 would be plenty of engine for it too, I just think that they'd stopped making that particular attachment by the time the C-111 was released.

all those tractors listed are pre 73 tach-a-matic tractors. so your sicle should fit most wh between 68 & 73, dont know about the gt 14 though. jay

It would fit the B-80, the Raider 9 and the C111 with no modification as far as mounting points are concerned. It definitely would not fit a GT14. Both the B80 and the C111 would more than likely require modifications for the belt drive. The B80 would be grossly underpowered for that particular sickle. W/H did make a sickle that would fit the B80 but would still require drive belt modifications. This short framed sickle was designed to run with the smaller drive pulleys used in the mid 60's (855,856 & 857) You Haban was designed to run off of the larger bell style pto pulley and also required use of the 68-70 attach-a-matic system. Later years use a Tach-o-matic system with the mule drive mounting out front. This is why the C111 would also require drive belt modification.

Just came across this 414 Haban sickle and the cover illustrates the unit installed on a GT-14

Do not suggest downloading the manual yet as the file is zipped and huge.
