I have A MF1450 and am looking for a mid mount sickle bar mower to hang under it. Any make is fine. I'll make it fit/work.

I'm in central Ontario, Canada.

If that haban takes the smaller obsolete blades STAY away from it. guards blades etc can add up in a big hurry.
You'd be better of adapting a large sickle that takes currently available blades, ledgers and guards. If you do buy and discover how hard it is to rebuild it affordabley drop me a PM I have parts.

Thanks for the input.
PA is too far of a drive.

Taking a more current, larger unit and adapting it had crossed my mind.
That sounds like a next winter project.

Poncho, I'd be interested in seeing some pics of your conversion.
Are any posted already?

Poncho, well done on the project. I like seeing and doing that sort of thing.
Make it work, cause anything is possible.
So, yep that's what I'm gonna do. Find a fairly new unit and adapt it as need be. I'll spend the summer collecting, and work on it next winter.
