I found a listing for a Bolens tractor with attachments about 20min from me. I was only interested in the Haban 405A sickle he had, and made an offer. He got back to me the next day and said the offer was good and would wait to see if he could sell the package. The next day he got back to me and said he had multiple offers on the sickle :mad2: and would sell to the highest bidder.Ended up selling the package for an unknown amount. It was listed for $800.00, the tractor was re-powered.They don't show up very often in my neck of the woods and will keep looking :mecry:

That's too bad. That sickle looks in real good shape.

He told me that it was $300.00 and would have to deliver it to Brockville. I was going to pick it up for $275.00 I guess he was trying to get as much as he could.No problem i'm very patient and will get one some day,LOL

I have a 405A for a large frame that is set up for hydraulic lift. There is no lift cylinder but the rest of the mower is there. If you are interested, drop me a message. Lets talk medicine.

C130A...If it's for a large frame, it's a 415 or 415A.

There is no hydraulic cylinder on the mower. It uses the tractors hydraulic lift

Here's a PDF of the 415A manual. It will show you how it mounts.

"Ole Buzz", your right! You and I had this discussion before, didn't we?! It is a 415A and you identified it once already, but hey, I was at FL290 yesterday unpressurized, breathing 100% O2 for 2+ hours so my brain is a little mushy.

Well...NOT being on O2 woulda been worse :D

I don't have to worry too much about that here in NE Ohio, I don't think I'll ever see more than about 6 -7000 in the Blanik L23 and Grob' G103 that I'll be flying this summer.

I wouldn't mind having a 415A, now that I have a large frame. But it has a FEL on it which would be a PITA to take off and put back on, and even worse...my "Tractor Fund" is too low :mecry:
