That is a real nice looking tractor. I like those rear tires,what are they?


Here is a link for what I ordered, but mine are 25" tall, sent by mistake.
2 new 23x10.50-12 All Trail Lawn Garden Tractor Tires | eBay

Nice tires nice tractor there's something about a tractor big or small with the metal pan seat, I like it.


And the pan seats are cheaper!

I looked around for those yesterday and found some for $158. Don't remember where and history gets wiped clean when I close FF. Let us know how well they do this winter.

I got new knife sections yesterday and got them installed today. I didn't take any pictures, but I can tell you they look just like the old ones, only SHARP. It's hard to get a picture of sharp. I had some trouble locating the sections. Everyone carries 3" sections, but the 2" is kinda tough. I got them from Jari. I figured I'd share the info for anyone else that might be looking for sections. Jari is pricey, but they have stuff in stock and ship FAST. For 25 sections, 50 rivets and shipping was around $170. Again, pricey, but they had them in stock and only took 2 days from the time I ordered them until I had them in hand. Here's the link in case anyone is interested.---> Jari USA, Home of the Jari Sickle Mower

If it's not a big deal, I wouldn't mind seeing a pic of those sections. What are the dimensions? hole centers? Part # at Jari?
Thanks

Gibby, Thanks for the link to the Jari site. I didn't even know they were still in business. I have two older Jari walk behinds, one with a sickle mower and one with a snow blower.

Very easy. I put the edge of the cutter bar on a big piece of steel I have with knife sections pointing down. Smack the back of the knife section with a hammer and it shears the old rivets right off. Only thing you have to watch for when putting the new sections on is that they are tight to the cutter bar before peening the rivets.
Here's an artists rendition, well, a rendition anyways.

The sections are 2" wide, 2 7/8" long, and the rivet holes are 1 3/8" center to center.
Item code for serrated knife sections- 102530 $5.95 each
Item code for rivets 3/16" x 1/2"- 900177 $.27 each
Here's a pic, excuse the grass.

Thanks for all that good info.
Those are identical to what my sickle uses. I had it out for a field test Monday afternoon. It did a good job, but
I think I'll replace those sections before next season.
I like using this sears sickle better than the Haban. Not as noisey. Only big advantage to the haban, is the
hydraulic lift control.

:good_job:$170.oo sounds high but considering you just can't walk into any store and find them at any price it kind of puts into perspective. Will be getting some before they stop building them.
Thanks for doing the leg work for the rest of us who need to get the mower going again.

I wasn't very excited about the price either, but they were one of 2 places I found them at roughly the same price. There is a local guy who deals in used full sized tractors and attachments who could get them for $150, but his supplier wasn't certain about the dimension of the rivet holes.

Oh, there was a third place, a manufacturer in China, but the minimum order from them is 10,000 pieces.

While looking for info on these, I found another place with availability on the knives. Again, please verify they are the right ones for you before ordering.
