    Default Kuhn Sickle Bar Mower?

    I have been watching for a local sickle bar mower. A Kuhn FA 367/372 just popped up on the local craigslist for what I think might be a reasonable price. Anyone have any info/experience they could share about this model?

    Kuhn make good machinery, however, I have never seen one. I would be sure, I could get parts support locally. Ken Sweet

    Parts support by Kuhn for these machines is poor. I was able to fill two parts orders this season from new customers looking for what should be common parts: knife sections, guards, etc. But there wasn't a lot of stock in Kuhn warehouses at all. Kuhn parts technical folks were very helpful in telling me exactly how many of this, that, or the other thing they had, and I ordered several part numbers in those quantities.

    Personally, I like Kuhn machines, but absolutely would not buy a sickle bar made by Kuhn.
    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.

    I just found out from the seller that this is not a belt drive, so it can't be operated unless horizontal. I pretty much want it solely to operate along the hillsides by my driveway so this won't work for me.
