Byron, who I got my Allis 720 from also had a 416 and a sickle mower for sale. I could have bought the sickle for just $150 in working order, but I would have had to alter it to fit any of my tractors. Once I told Fred about it, he lit up like a Christmas tree! LOL
So I passed on it for him to get the package. The 416 looks rough, but has a low hour short block in it & runs like brand new. Needs carb needle/float adjusted and points cleaned up good, but still runs nice. He got it all for a steal IMHO.
Every time I see the sickle again, I kick myself for not getting it! But Fred has a full size sickle machine I may use to build one for one of my tractors!

Nice haul there, too bad on the sickle, but it will get good use soon enough I'm sure.

Those sickle bar mowers will give you and the tractor the shakes..... but some here like to be shook. Makes your little tractor look like the big boys. Also put one on you tractor and helps you win tractor of the month :smile1:

HeHe, true story. And if you do it right, it won't cost you 150. What's 1/2 a
sheet of plywood, and a bit of jigsaw time worth.:D:D


Dan that's a Haban right? MG will be happy with it. It's amazing what you can
chop down with those things. Slow and easy is the key. I pour a bit of thin oil on the
blade/keepers to cut down on the friction/wear.

Looks good. Someday I will find one in that $ bracket. Saw one today for a Sears and could make myself pay the $400 he wanted.

Meangreen, we expect all-angles video of it in operation. Congrats.

That sickle bar is huge! Not necessarily the blade, but the gearbox and drive shaft look big! That looks like a great deal! Glad that it's gone to a good home. (I'm sure that you can "borrow" the Allis if you need to do some mowing!)

Going to get the sickle mounted on the 416 today. All I will need for some videos is the "clutch to mower" belt, that's the only thing I didn't get with the outfit. Cleaned to carb and adjusted the float yesterday and she mowed great with the deck. Bearings in the deck are even good.

Been up to Fred's trying to fit this to his Allis. Doesn't slip right on, but it will soon. Looks like it was set up for an older model like a B-10 Allis, but just one mod & she'll be ready. I'm sure Fred will be chiming in on this soon.

Thinking of the same to use on the Allis 720. Fred has an old full size Ford sickle mower he said he'll never use.
