hi all; i was offered the chance to buy a wheelhorse sickle bar mower, he wants enough for it ($500) and hes 3hrs away, he says its for 7 inch frame and has the pto pedal attached to the sickle frame itself, thinks it may have been of a gt 14 but cant remember, does anyone have any idea what else this will fit and is it even a wheel horse which he says it is, thanks for your advice and opinions, john

What brand is it? Haban? If it's haban it should have a tag on it with the model number. Fwiw I got $700 out of the one I had for a Cub.

No idea, BUT, GT14 stuff was always a little diff than most Horse items for other models. I had one and had to hunt for JUST that model attachments, a little harder to find.

If it's a Haban it should be the Model 414 which was for the  GT14, Electro12, Charger 10-12, and Raider 10-12 tractors and look like this.

It should also have a PTO unit that hangs on the frame of the tractor that looks like this.

The 414 can be used on a Bolens tube frame with just a minor modification.
