Reviewed the two Operators Manual 350 And 450 Mowers OME58660 Issue I5 and OME58660 Issue L5.

Also reviewed the Operators Manual 350 And 450 Mowers (Serial No. 800001- ) OM-E79838 Issue C9 that replaces OM-E58660 I5.

Each manual had a different way of attaching the 350 mower to the tractor.

Came across a saying last week "I may not have the best of everything, but I do the best with everything I have."

With that in mind, take a look at the photos below of how our 350 mower is attached to the tractor.

It may not be properly attached, but it works for us.

Take a look at the photos below of my "attempt" to change "Nelson" our 7ft mower from a narrow to a wide setting.

Was unable to get the pivot pin out of the frame; re-assembled the mower and attached it to "Old John" Nancy's 48A.

Hope this helps.

James, thanks very much for the photos, they really help. One question on the triangluar piece that you pin to the drawbar. What is the purpose of slot? The bolt does not appear to be free to slide - is the slot just a way to adjust the length of the chain? My mower did not come with any of the hardware to attach to the drawbar. My operator's manual is #82271, for mowers 800001- (my mower is 8509xx), and it shows an eye-bolt in the drawbar pointing up. Which should I have, the triangle or the eye bolt?

The operators manual recommends that there should be between 8 to 10 inches between the frame and the ground with the cutter bar in operating position.

The slot in the drawbar clevis is designed for a pin with a cotter key to secure the chain; the chain should be free to slide in the slot.

Since the drawbar on our tractor is upside down, a nut, lock washer, and bolt were used to secure the chain in the upside down drawbar clevis after the frame height was set.

Reviewed the 350 And 450 Mowers (Serial No. 800001- ) Operators Manual OM-E79838 Issue C9 under the Attaching and Detaching topic on page 15.

There is a notation NOTE: On 850, 950, 1250, and 1450 Tractors, attach eyebolt (G) to hole in mounting plate (I).

Unless you are using one of the four models listed in the notation, the mounting plate is not required and an eyebolt in the drawbar will work.

Hope this helps.
