Somehow it looks too small to run a sickle mower like that. The Ski Doo behind it looks like one of the wide track utility machines they made in the 60's.

I would be curious to know how it handles with the sickle hanging off the side like that.  I just sold my Beaver and they are a very narrow machine, so I'd love to know how the sickle affects the performance of the tractor, particularly if it makes it really tippy.

Hard to say how tipsy it would be with it up. What do you suppose the bar is, 4 ft? That's a nice loking original machine.

Id be all over this if I was not over 1000 miles away. It would cost me more then $925 is gas just to pick it up. Last time I saw one for sale it was even further.

 

Anybody want to transport this for me? (for free)...

Probably similar to my Bolens G10 with the Haban Sickle-Mo.  I used a wheel weight on the left rear wheel to help counter balance it.. That made it a lot better.

seems like it would tip over when lowering or raising the sickle bar mower
