Would anybody happen to have a pic of a sickle bar mower on a b112?
Mostly interested in how they lift and what the lift looks like. Thank you in advance

I don't have a pic but, there is probably a manual for it in our Manuals Section. Look under AC and Simplicity. Good Luck, Rick

Thanks New Canadian. So is that a cable used to lift the sickle arm itself? And you can use it set at different angles for hills and stuff?

Here's what I'm looking at picking up. More concerned with the sickle bar and what the lift part is called and if you can buy just that part.001.JPG 002.JPG 004.JPG 005.JPG 003.JPG

And the deck has wooden rollers. Pretty sure that wasn't factory. If anything else looks out of place please point it out. I know the seat is wrong and something looks odd about the hitch too

Two of the tractors pictured have the rear chain support attached incorrectly...you do not want it attached to your lift rockshaft arm, or the rear of your mower will lift and lower, when it should remain level to avoid belt wear.

 

Note the chain to the bracket bolted to the frame:

Its mounted wrong in the one I posted? Also are these manual or hydraulic lift?

These tractors could be equipped with an optional hydraulic lift kit but the tractor you're looking at specifically, does not have hydraulic lift. Its missing the rear chain bracket as Josh points out but that's an easy part to make. The headlights aren't original.  The rear hitch looks like the factory front/rear ball hitch accessory with the side tabs cut off.

In addition to my previous comments, I also noticed the knifebar may be broken or out of place as you can see the knifehead and first few sickles in the circled part of the picture. Normally these would not be visible.

Yeah I see that...like the bottom should be twisted back to cover those? I see on the tractor on the side it has a pulley and cable to the sickle. Is that what lifts it then? How do you tell if its hydraulic lift or not?

Now I see its missing the tube part at the center of the top and the formed part at the bottom. Thanks for the link. That looks like a handy hitch. Kinda cool that it can go on the front or rear.

So these tractors have front, mid, & rear pto's? Are they electric then? Sorry for all the questions. I love the looks of these old AC's but never had one, just have had the newer ones.

And it looks like the chain bracket is there but just in the wrong location as talntedmrgreen pointed out. I think that's what he was referring to
