When My daughter and her husband moved to their home a few years ago we found this mower setting in the tall grass.  The SIL wants me to try to get it working again for him.  So far we know that it is a trailer type mower that was pretty crudely modified to hang of the back of something without a three point lift.  We want to convert it again to a three point mount for the back of his New HollandTC29.  Started tearing it down today and with the help of some PB Blaster all the nuts and bolts so far have apart just fine.  The only number I found on the mower appear to be part numbers.

 

Only issues I can see so far are the end of the pitman arm that fastens to the cutter bar is missing but should be available, the lower “gearbox” is frozen up so I filled it up with paint thinner/tranny fluid hoping it will loosen it up (box is heavy duty and parts should be available) and a spare cutter bar will need to be found.

I found the one in the last photo today on the local Craigslist for $900 and emailed the seller to see if he or she knows the model number.

 

Just wondering if anyone know the approximate year and the model number

 

Thanks.

I think the mower started out as a International Harvester Model 32 trailer mower.  I would like to start a thread about converting it but do not think this is the proper site for doing so since it is not a garden tractor related item.  Perhaps the other tractor site would be better.

 

Anyway we will be out camping this weekend.
