I tried cutting some alfalfa with weeds today with the Parker-Grate sickle-bar on my 1948 B1-7RS ROTOTILLER.

It really runs smooth and does a nice job. I like the fact that the cutter bar is off to the side instead of out in front of you. I picked up an old National Sickle mower last year and tried it out on the property. It's hilly here with banks and ditches, so it was a bit tough to operate. I had some fun with it, though. I've been using the Allis B1 with the sickle to take down the tall stuff lately. Thanks for posting the video!

It looks like it did a good job on those weeds. Like classic mentioned it nice to have it off setted . If cutting tall weeds, or crops with the DB I found even with the Tall Grass Bar it still ended up knocking down the uncut ,then had to stop and remove it . Thanks for the video

Looks like you did very good job. Maybe you could do it for fulltime business.

I don't think so.  It is not the easiest to run.   A lot of force to turn right.  The instructions suggest removing the drive pin from the left wheel so that the right whee is the only drive wheel.

In the 2 or 3 years that these tillers were made at least 3 different versions of the rear sickle bar were made and two versions of the front mounted unit.

I really like that National  Sickle bar.  I have seen one like that before, maybe it was yours.  Looks like it would work well.
