I don't know how the sickle attaches to a deere but how hard would it be to adapt it over to a gravely?
If you need pictures or anything I can help with that.
I've been thinking of doing odd jobs for extra cash, how do you go about pricing something like that? We're far enough apart so I won't hurt you.
It is quite a bit different from how it attaches to a Gravely. I 1st got the sickle from a friend. With hte intention of putting it on the 8123. When I picked it up he said to me, " I don't remember if it fits a cub or a 110/112. But if it fits the 110/112 I'll hook you up." He had 8 110's and a few 112's in his barn.
So I got home, measured, scratched my head, measured, planned etc. Pretty much had it figured out. Build a few brackets and modify a pulley to run off of the snow blower driveshaft.
Then when it started pouring out, I ran the numbers and my Haban fits a 110/112. To make a long story shorter, he tuned up the 110 which has low hours on the rebuilt K241. He changed the oil. He charged the battery. He started and test drove the 110. Then called me up. He GAVE it to me as well as GIVING me the Haban.
So my choices were potentially butcher the Haban up, or put it on what it belonged on. To me that made more sense.
As far as getting jobs..... for me it is easy. I have slowly been building up a caretaking business as my wife is a self employed gardener. So the jobs just kinda appear for me. As I have several property's I take care of.
Next week the 110 and the C12 with my 1950's sickle bar go to a pond to start a massive clean up.
My biggest complaint about the 110 is the lack of Gravely traction. But until a good affordable Haban comes along for my 8123 when I am not strapped for cash..... this setup will work.
Like I said above. The 110 is a good GT. It just isn't a Gravely. I am sure we all understand what I mean.
