I posted in "Prayers for Texas Deere & Horse" thread how Brian is coming by during his family visit trip. He's bringing me something too.  We did some trading, and I'm getting a GT sickle mower.  Wheel Horse brand, but  Bush Hog sickle mowers are all but impossible to be had.  So my "plans" are to adapt it to the belly of my Bush Hog HD-12.  Maybe this will help put a spark back into my GT stuff once time & energy allow.  Will likely be a good while before I can devote any time to it, but I'll finally have a sickle mower for a GT.  I could have had one a long time ago for just $100, but being it would fit my BIL's Allis 416 I used to own, I thought it best to let him buy it, as it was a bolt on fit for his tractor.  Been kicking my own butt ever since for thinking of others!  :rolling:

  Well, it was the right thing to do, and being I will have one finally, it's all good.  Pics when it arrives.

I'll be :watch_over_fence:  A sickle mower is on my wish list to mow the ditch across the back of my property.

Lets hope so!  There will be some head scratching for sure getting it adapted, but where there's a will, there's a way!
