I'm going to an auction Saturday (tomorrow) and maybe bid bid on a 350 mower with a 7' bar. Any of you guys have any background with these mowers? How much should I bid?HJ

Does anyone know where I can obtain an operators manuel for the JD 350 sickle bar mower. My Uncle sold his ranch and left this in the brush. I pulled it out and am in the process of restoring it. It is all there and I have it mounted on a 9N Ford. It seems to work OK but may be out of adustment. Any help would be appreciated.
Regards,
Greg

What do you mean I'm not handsome, I'm 6'1" I weigh 275lbs with a beer gut, I got a twitch in my right eye, my nose was broke when I was sixteen and never set right, and I'm pretty much bald headed. I should of been a movie star or a model. Of course that's just my opinion.HJ

you messed up by not bidding this item in....there is no comparison to the 350 and the pitman mowers....I wouldn't trade 5 pitman mowers for my 350....at $650 that was a steal....

No argument here Chuck but the bottom line is that I will hook that mower up trim for about 15 - 20 minutes and the the mower comes back off. I do that about three times a years. For that kind of money, I thought it was too much mower for me.ThanksHJ

I went to the sale and stopped bidding at $635.00. The mower brought $650.00. After the bidding was over another guy told me his neighbor had a JD mower that he wanted to get rid of and probably wouldn't take much for it at all. He couldn't remember the model# but said it was made for the 20 series tractor such as 1020s and 3020s etc. He did know that it had a pitman arm and was not belt driven.Anybody know which one that could be?HJ

Sounds like it could be a No. 9 or a 9W if it's a three point. The same mower is an 8 or 8W if it mounts on the draw bar with a single castering wheel in back.

Clem, do either one of them have a raising mechanism for the bar?

If you mean folding it for transport or unfolding it for use, you have to get off the tractor and use the "Armstrong" method. If I've mis-understood your question post back and I'll try to answer it. I've owned a #8 and a #9 and a #9W which is the wider one for larger tractors.

No, I probably didn't make myself very clear. When I asked if the bar would raise, I meant would it raise to clear a stump for instance? The last JD mower I used was a #5 and that bar raised via remote hydraulic. When I looked at the 350 mower today It had a short end of chain with a clevice and pin and I assume it hooked to the draw bar and when you raised the 3 pt. it caused the bar to raise a few feet. We have an old Ford 501 that kind of uses the same principal but that whole mechanism has long since been rendered useless. I'm really not too familar with the mowers JD made the last half century, that's why your getting bombarded with all these questions.HJ

No problem, Jim. The #8 is much like a #5 in operation. With the bar down in the mowing position it should raise 12 inches and be pretty much horizontal to the ground. If it doesn't do this it's either out of adjustment or parts are missing or broken. The #9 should be when it's raised on the three point about the same or higher depending on the tractor. When I'm running one, I frequently raise it, while running to avoid obstructions. The bar should be clear of the ground all the way from the yoke to the outside tip. The Ford 501 is a 3pt, too and should be rigged the same. In my opinion, the #8 and #9 are not as good as the 350 but are ok. As you are probably aware, parts and opertor's manuals are still available from JD. I recommend getting an operator's manual, it'll really help in rigging the mower.

Thanks for all your help Clem, The guy that owns the mower is supposed to give me a call when I get info on what model it is I will probably look you up for 'mower' advice. Thanks HJ

In my area, at a sale, it wouldn't bring $300. Almost everything is cut with disc mowers or mower-conditioners and there is little demand for them any more. I use my 350 to cut weeds in ditches and on pond dams and etc. Each area is different I guess.

I've owned three of them....a good one will cost you $1000-$1400 or maybe a little more...JD still makes these and they are $4000+ new. They're the best of the best for sickle bar...I have a late model one, you can set them in narrow or wide positions....you can use the clean cutter rock guards and they will seldom clog...great machine....

Thanks Chuck, that was fast service. I'm more or less challenged when it comes to this type of impliment so if I'm lucky on Saturday, I'll probably be calling on you for more help. Thanks,HJ.
