It is hanging out in the shop I work. We are a used machinery dealer so taking things apart and fixing them is par for the course.
When my dad had it he had the mower and a snow blower but not the sickle. He had a buddy (different from the one he gave it to) up the road who had a SS12 also. They also shared a few other attachments between them.
I checked the oil, cleaned the carb, slapped on a battery, cleaned out the gas tank, replaced the fuel lines, and put some gas in the tank. Wah-La! Fired right up! The transmission works in all gears. Brakes not so much. One wheel hub cracked. One oil seal on the axle is weepy. The engine has been replaced with a Tecumseh OH140.
Going to need a bit of work yet.
I plan to keep it. The sickle was the only attachment that was with it.
It wasn't too hard to find. Facebook helped with that. (I dislike fb though)
