I had a belly mower on mine, was on it when I bought it. It was made by Sun Master out of Olathe Kansas. I took it off a couple of years later, and it laid on a pallet for a few more years until I sold it. I know it came off easier that it went on for the fellow that bought it, I couldn't remember where all the parts went. I'm sure woods makes one that will fit a B.

try to get a 60 inch if you are cutting stuff several inches high. i installed a WOODS 72 inch on a "C" and it worked great in the yard, but a little too much load for field work. most of the mowers use a bracket that bolts between the rear final drive cases, like the draw bar. there are a couple hangers that drop down from the rear of the motor clutch housing to support the front, normally have a couple wheels on the front end to glide over rough ground. mine used the standard 3/4 inch diameter cylinder normally in the rear to lift the deck. have seen a couple "B" with a long lever arm and manual lift. Some drive off the rear PTO and some drive off the side pto pulley. depends on the gear ratio needed.

I have a couple of images of belly mount mowers on a B on my website (links below) - that may give you an idea. Not too much to hooking it up - just time and effort.

I have a Woods L59 60 inch mower on my 1949 B and that's a real nice combo. I use it to mow the yard, but Saturday afternoon I mowed a ditch with 10-12 inch tall grass (or better) down to around 5 or 6 inches. Pulled it hard, but it handled it - just had to make two passes because I had let the grass get so tall. The temperature gauge never moved ..... and this was a ditch bank 20 feet wide by about 1/4 mile long. I do like that B!

Sandy Lake Implement offers Woods mowers (sandylakeimp@hotmail.com or 724-376-2489) as well as Paul Bazetta (http://www.tractorbuddies.com). I think a L59 mower will cost you around $1300 to $1600 plus freight.

Since we canít actually talk to our tractors, though some of the older sect of farmers might disagree, we use our five physical senses to observe and construe what our iron age friends are trying to tell us. We have already talked about some of the colors the unit might leave as clues to its well-being. Now we are going to use our noses to diagnose particular smells. ELECTRICAL SMELLS ... [Read Article]
