All,
Why didn't the front side mount sickle mowers last or make it? Correct me on the model,,110? International still has a great bearing head set up. Was there a flaw in the front side mount mowers? Also was weight a issue or did they make 9 foot mowers in that variety? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.--adam

We had a new one of those on a M and a new conditioner in the back. That was one farm job I liked, worked super, fun to use. Was a bitc? to mount though.

Don't know what to tell you. There was a 110 side mount, don't have one of those. Also a 115 side mount. I have one of them mounted on a SMTA. I used it a lot to mow hay before I picked up an old 990 mower conditioner. Mowing with the 115 is a very pleasant experience. Mower is quiet, you do not have to turn around. 990 is loud but it goes thru heavier hay and makes a nice windrow. I do not take the 115 off the tractor. These things are heavy and a PITA to mount. I just leave it there and if the 990 breaks down I am up and going again quick with the 115. FYI you do not want that mower on the down side of a slope when you turn. My tires are loaded and it still felt like she wanted to go over the one time I did it.

The model 22 was enough of a pain to mount on a super A, I definitely wouldn't want to have to mount and dismount the larger ones very often.
It is so much easier just to back up to something and slide 3 pins in, than it is to fight mounting a front mounted mower for around an hour. I got pretty quick at mounting the model 22 on my super A , but it still wasn't anything I looked forward to.

I have to second BarnyardEngineering's reply. The 115 was a bit easier to mount. The 110, once mounted stayed on the tractor. Also, in my experience, Single action hydraulics also put a pretty good beating on those machines, and the operator, depending on the length of the swath board.

Because they were not quick or easy to mount and unmount. Because they were heavy and often broke the bell housings. Because mower conditioners came along and made sickle bar mowers obsolete.
