Bought one new 1977. If you have small rocks in field you will learn to duck the reel runs pretty fast and it will launch rocks at ya. Look at gearbox mounting plate for cracks. Cut a lot of hay with it very little trouble.

I know what you mean about the rocks flying ron. I hit a box turtle a couple of years ago and he took quite a ride!

Besides looking for cracks on the gearbox mounting bracket if it's had much welding done on the bracket run don't walk away. Also check to be sure sickle drive arm is tight on wobblebox. I'd prefer the machine after SN 285001 because it will only have one lift cylinder. The earlier units with 2 lift cylinders(master & slave) have been known to raise platform uneven.

The comment about the drive arm on the wobble box cannot be overemphasized. It must be tight and when the manual says torque to 150 ft-lbs, it means just that. Failure to comply results in the bar breaking on the drive end and it doesn't take long, even with a new bar.

BTDT more than once.
