Found this pic and thought I'd share as this ad was made by Wisconsin motors to promote their engine used in the Grounds Keeper tractors

Anyone else have Wisconsin literature with Bolens in it? The only other time I seen it was for the Husky 800 with S7D

Well there is nothing in my GK book about a sickle mower.   I like to see this set up if there was one.

It could very well be a typo especially since the ad was not done by Bolens. We have seen this with the allied attachments before where they list a cozy cab fitting a non existent Bolens 950

Like Jerome said, there is nothing in the Bolens literature on the GK that says anything about a sickle bar mower. I do have somethingon an alllied manufacturer that was selling ganged reel mowerrs for the GK.
