    Default 5 ' Sickle Bar Itentification - Help

    Good Morning,
    I purchased this 5' sickle bar for $250.00 but have no idea what brand it is. The plate on the belly of it is a home made add on, but the rest seems pretty much original. It works great, just looking for a brand name in case I need to get parts.

    Thank you in advance,
    Scott

    I have one just like it. We trim with a baby tractor with it. Guards are unique narrow design.

    does the mower use a pittman arm or belt to drive the sickle?

    It has a short belt arrangement which goes down to a lower pulley to propel the Pitman Arm.

    Thanks for the start on the ID. If you have a model number, that would be great. The US distributor for G&S told me it is not one of theirs, so I am hopeful it is an International. Thanks very much!
