Anyone use a sickle mower on their Jubilee? What size and is it run directly off pto or is there a belt/pulley involved. How does it handle tall and thick grass? Any ideas on cost for a Ford or similar mower? Thanks for any input.

Thanks to all for the information and comments. I was curious as there was (now sold) Ford 501 for sale nearby. Not sure what it sold for but seller was asking $350 and photos showed it in pretty nice condition.

$350 for one that is in good shape is not bad. Key to them is things like sections and guards and belts etc. Any part that can wear is what you need to look and and also welds that should not be there

Several years ago I had a Ford 501, 7' mower on my 51 8N. That was a really good combination and on a Jubilee or 600 series tractor would be even better. I had good hay ground and mowed mostly in third gear. I traded work with neighbors and could just about run over any other tractor mowing in the same field. Set up right, with a good sharp sickle you just cant beat a 501 and a Ford tractor.

Any N can easily handle a sickle bar mower as these mowers are very efficient and require little HP if in decent condition.

They are better suited to tall crops than shorter crops and work best when operated at relatively high ground speed as compared to rotary cutters.

The cover must be clean, however, and they are not suited for brush, rocks, saplings, etc.

There are a good number of 3 point sickle mowers that work well on a Jubilee. The 501 or 515 Ford mowers as well as a good many NH and MF mowers. You want something under 9 foot say 7 foot for most stuff. I see them on Craig's list off and on all the time

Hi, now not knowing whether you are leaning toward a rear 3 point sickle bar mower or the belly mount style . But either mower is run by a belt system connected to a double puuley on the PTO shaft . Lifting the cutter bar is thru the tractors hyd lift system . Now before buying a used sicle mower , think hard because if you buy & install the belly mount #14- ? mower , realize your tractor will now be a designated mower . But, if you buy & install a rear mount 3 pt sickle mower , it's much like any other 3 pt implement to remove so that you can use the tractor for another project . The cutter bars came 6' and 7'. I hope I've helped . Good luck with your decision & God bless, Ken

Would like to find one myself. With a down angle for ditch mowing.

Hippie, you need a Ferguson Dyna-Balance sickle bar mower to be able to mow the down angle of a ditch bank. It will also mow practically straight up to. Best mower i've ever used. Pain in the a$$ to mount though!!! Can only be mounted on 8n and newer. WILL NOT fit a 2n or 9n.
