Haban 405 Sickle-Mo today.

Not a bad looking mower at all, but was missing some parts :(

Here's a pic of it. There should be a curved tube/arm with a pulley on it that mounts into the short tube that in on the right since in this pic.

It's called the "Sickle Carrier Assembly". If that wasn't missing it would have been on the truck, as the seller only wants $200.00 for it.

Seller also has a NICE deck, round-back tiller, and a small frame front blade blade.

The lady that has it listed is going to talk to her brother who MAY have the parts.

If he does I'll buy iit. If not, I may be able to get as a "parts mower" for @ $100.00.

It's also missing the rear hanger and the Outer Guide Rod, but that's not a deal breaker.

That 405 is belt driven and is for the early tube frames like the 600, 800, and 900.

If you have one of the later tube frames you will need the PTO driven 405A

Nothing like a good excuse to go and buy a round top.....I've had my eye on one for awhile
