If you have room to raise it maybe 2" it would be a good idea to do so. If not, it will still work as long as you keep that low clearance in mind when you are using it.
Here's what a 405A looks like mounted on a G10 and a 1256 Bolens.

things to look at.
That sure is some pretty serious lighting you've got going there. Are you not running into
drained battery problems, if you go out for an all night sickle mow?
About the front mount, yeah, it does look a bit low, but if it works for you, and you're not
bottoming out, then I guess it isn't.
Enjoy the mower.

ya the lights look cinda funny but they are really bright. i think they were rated for 200watts and run at 20amps each! Do you think the sickle bar mount in the front is two close to the ground?
Nice looking mowing machine.
Does your charging system put out that kind of current?

... The only real problem i have noted is that when i lift the cutting bar up the whole tractor leans to one side. i think the tractor is bending because of the weight. Do any of you think i could put some sort of counter weight system to fix that problem?
You will most definately want to put a wheel weight on the left rear.
I did that with the G10. With the 1256, a PO widened stance of the tractor so it doesn't need it. The rears are also fluid filled which helps lower the center of gravity.
Without that weight, mowing on a slope could end up being 'quite exciting'.
