The SICKLE BAR WEIGHT KIT adds 33 pounds and is installed on the Sickle Bar Mower transmission.
The ADJUSTABLE SKIDS can be adjusted to a 3″ cutting height.
When climbing steep slopes or traversing severely uneven terrain, both versions of the Sickle Bar can benefit from additional weight on the sickle bar transmission to prevent the mower from being “back-heavy,” or heavier on the engine side of the tractor. The SICKLE BAR WEIGHT KIT helps keep the implement on the ground and eliminates the need for the operator to lift upward on the handlebars. The kit can be installed on both grease-able and oil bath sickle bar transmissions. In some cases the kits can be stacked for two total weight kits totaling 66 pounds.
Both versions of the Sickle Bar Mower also have ADJUSTABLE SKIDS, which can be adjusted up to a 3” cutting height. The skids are installed on threaded bolt holes on the top of the bar assembly, and are adjusted by tightening its dish-shaped shoes in the desired position. Please note that these skids can be installed only on the Laser version of the Sickle Bar and Duplex mowers.
