    Default Sickle Bar for Super C

    I'm looking to find a Sickle mower for my '52 Farmall Super C with 3 pt hitch.
    Most of the mowers I find say that you need 30hp min.

    Does anyone have a recommendation ?

    Tommy-
    The ideal mower for your Super C with a three point hitch is the IH 1300 balanced head mower. And, you don't need hydraulics to lift the bar, the bar is mechanically raised as the 3 point lifts the mower.

    I know for certain this mower doesn't need 30 hp because I run a 1300 on my little 19hp JD750.
    The 19 hp is plenty of power, however, the JD 750 is a little light and when the bar clogs it pulls the front of the tractor sideways, rather convenient actually, I dubbed it the clog indicator.
    Clearing 100 acres I have cut some extremely rough stuff and on some moderately steep hills. The Farmall C or Super C would be an excellent platform for the 1300 mower, much more stability and traction than the little 750 with turf tires..

    Soon as the weather clears I am side mounting the same IH balanced head mower on an old $400 buck 1950 Farmall C. See image below for a side mount installation:
    The mower will be permanently mounted and that's all the tractor will be used for.

    I have run a couple different 7 footer's on my Super C's cutting hay with no problem. Although they are Fast Hitch mowers, 7', is 7'.

    Thanks guys.

    The IH 1300 is exactly what I've been looking at. Good to know that the Super C can power it.

    I love that side mounted bar.

    Good Afternoon Tommy,
    I have the old rear mount 16A mower for my 42 A and would really like to have a side mount like he one pictured and mount it on my 49 Super A. The side mount is the way to go IMO...

    Good Luck with it !

    My Dad had a 200 Farmall with the fast hitch. He mowed an awful lot of hay with a 7' sickle bar mower on that 2 point fast hitch! Have fun with that old iron!

    I have a rear mounted sickle bar mower that can mow dtches. I had it hooked up to my Super A but it would work on a 100 and probably on a C. I am sellit if you are interested.

    A friend is looking for a 110 side mount. I've done some looking and have pretty much decided that the 110 is to hard to find parts for. The search may have to include the 1300.
