   If trowel is going to say no and give it away it is going my way :smilewink:, I will even throw in a quart of fresh syrup :angel:.    You lucky dog, I have been looking for one of those I could afford for awhile now.   Nice find.

Nice going. Your patience has been rewarded. What engine? Does it run? Will it be running by tomorrow? Good Luck, Rick

Thanks guys,

Looks like a parts sickle, the bracket that holds the idler pulleys is broke off, easy fix with a grinder and welder, missing swathboard, bracket and the lifting handle, no real issues there.

 

Ironic, stated a few months ago i would never use one so i let the two on CL pass by,...looks like i have to use one now :thumbs:

 

Can not find the ID tag, the carry frame is black with a Simplicity decal on the side, the sickle itself looks like it has been repainted, no decals of any kind and the sickle bar looks to be forwards a bit, inspection shown no damage, broken bolts, cracks or twisting of any kind.

 

At the rate the snow is melting now the grass will be growing fast, 55 degrees today, woo hoo :dancingbanana:

I know it looks unusual with out the snow thrower attached but that's the same tractor, Squire 9, lol, it was just the sickle i got today.

I wish i was given a whole tractor, i would cry.

 

Tommorow i may not be able to tinker with it, spent just about all day today working.

Nice find. I have a thing for sickles. I think they are just so fun to use.

Just be careful, and don't push it to hard.

Thanks, i won't, have the manual and is reading up on it, im more use to the 7 foot head belly and three point hitch so this little 46 incher makes me chuckle, the belly mount being my favorite.

 

What is your favorite sickle ?
