And older gentleman just dropped this off and asked me to take a look at it for him.  Just wanted to share it with everyone, as I love the sickle bar mower attachment on it.  He has 32 more tractors of various makes and models at home, and invited me to come look at them one day.  I see a short road trip in my future soon.

First bar mower I have seen with a center shoe.  Would love to find one for one of my Bolens.

All of the 46" Simplicity sickles had the center shoe. The 700 Series and other RBT's used a "planetary" drive unit to reduce the speed from the mid-pto. These are one of the most scarce attachments for those tractors.
