    Default Gaspardo / Frontier sickle bar mower

    I just bought a used SB1107 Frontier double acting sickle mower made by Gaspardo. Unlike my other Gaspardo mower, this one has knife guards that are bolted on rather than riveted. A nice feature that saves time if a knife guard needs to be replaced, as the knife guard bar needn't be removed, just bolt on a new guard.
    Unless I am mistaken though, this means that the knife guard bar cannot be slid out the way a riveted one can. Not so nice a feature, as it means that all of the hold-downs must be removed in order to remove the knife guard bar.

    If anyone out there has a Gaspardo / Frontier with the bolted knife guards, I'd like to hear from you. The users manual is not helpful on this point.
    Thanks in advance.
