I have always wanted a sickle bar mower, but would prefer a PTO version. (no mods to tractor)
But every one I have ever seen is too big, too expensive, or too far.
A sickle mower would make trimming my road frontages easy- it would cut down on the fire danger from those tossed cigs.
Bill, keep you eye open for one of these (or similar) used. Then the price is reasonable and you can pull it with Lil Foot. I see them on Marketplace for $600 or so. Some are made by Swisher in Sedalia, Mo.
