Sickle Bar Features


Features/Specifications

  • Double action sickle bar


  • Available in working widths of 6 ft., 7 ft. and 8 ft.


  • Adjustable 3 point hitch, fits either category 1 or 2 three point hitches


  • Safety release


  • Compensation spring


  • High cutting speeds with low profile design allows cutter bar to hug the ground for a smooth, close cut

  • Transport blade protection, solid rod hooks to frame and to sickle bar blade for transport over long distances or rough terrain, otherwise you can just position it into up position for most transportation


  • Extra blade and chain with hook


  • Hydraulic lift system powered by your tractor's hydraulic system, the one-way hydraulic cylinder lifts the blade up from -55 degrees to +90 degrees (transport and vertical cutting position) and comes with a hydraulic hose that includes a flow valve. The sickle bar drops down by gravity, but the speed of the drop can be regulated by opening and closing the return valve on the hose which allows the hydraulic fluid to return to the reservoir faster or slower. Open the return valve all the way and the sickle bar drops very fast, after the control valve is set, you can control the up and down of the sickle bar from your tractor seat.


  • Heavy duty shielded PTO shaft (1 3/8 inches ASAE, cat. 4)


  • Designed to tackle rough and tough hay fields, ideal for set-aside or conservation acreage, or ditchbank mowing.


  • The photo below shows point A (distance from the right three point hitch connection point over to the joint of the sickle bar cutter), and point B (distance from the left three point hitch connection point over to the joint of the sickle bar cutter). To determine which width of mower will work for your application and tractor, measure from the right lower three point hitch arm on your tractor to the outside of your right wheel. This will deterimine how far to the right on your tractor the point of the attachment of the blade is positioned and will let you know how far each of the blades listed below will extend past the right rear wheel of your tractor.
