Rigged this up today. Noel

Budget sickle bar mower. Turns on and off when lowered or raised.

Works good. !!

That has got to be the best idea I've seen yet, HA! I had to improvise today to get some old 7.50-16 tires off the rims. It was tough breaking the beads on these things.

An old fashion bumper jack with the foot welded on works well too. Good Luck, rick

I've done the bumper jack routine years ago, but I don't own a bumper jack anymore. It really does work well and I should look around for another.

If it had been attached with duct tape, I would know where Red Green was hiding. Remember, we are all in this together. Good Luck, Rick

I wonder how that would work at my sons house , he has briers (sticker bushes ) along a stream and treeline . As they grow you keep mowing further into the grass . Pretty sure they would puncture a tire if you just tried with the tractor but this might work better then hand clipper and a push mower like we have being doing .
