My family got this 6ft cutter on the cheap for me but I have no clue the manufacturer or weight. I'm trying to figure this out to see if its worth them driving it across a couple states to give to me or better to sell. I have a kubota L3400 but this cutter is not CAT I, i believe its CAT II.

If any of you know the brand it would be a life saver, its not new but I don't know how old. I also don't know what the chain with the V shaped metal bar in the middle of the lower link pins is for so if anyone knows that would be great as well.

My wag would be Woods. It looks like a very
well built mower. HEAVYduty.

Look on TractorHouse for a similar one if
you don't any responses.

I don't remember ever seeing a cutter exactly similar to your cutter.Yes from observing draft pin diameter(1-1/8'') it appears cutter has Cat ll hitch. V shaped rod attached with chains is a cutting height adjuster which requires a centerlink with a rooster comb on it's top edge to set lower height limit.

I can see why you think it could be a Woods. On first glance it reminds me of a B106 model Woods but the gearbox Mount is definitely not a Woods that I’ve ever seen. It looks like a well built cutter. If it is a Woods it will be stamped on various parts.

My first thought when I saw it was an old FMC/Sidewinder. They were heavy made and painted that color. They are out of business now, but another group has bought the tooling and still makes them under another name. They also still provide parts. You may want to send them a photo and ask if it is a FMC/Sidewinder.

Don't know for sure who made it, but it's identical to an old Allis mower a neighbor used to have. Some were made by Danuser and some by Allis. Either way you might have luck at an AGCO dealer. The bent metal brackets to stabilize the gearbox and the angle reinforcement along the edges of the deck are the same.

Does this warning help identify the make?

I have no clue on being able in helping you Identify the model. I will suggest that if any one does move it any further down the road that the straps be rearranged so they do not rub on sharp edges. The straps will not last long the way their rubbing in places. No need to have such nice efforts on your behalf end badly.
