Woods L59 Mower for a '39 B

I have been bugging the local tractor place about ordering me a Woods L59 belly mower to go on my '39 B (as original, no hydraulics etc.). I went in there yesterday and found that they had raised prices since I looked in January (list is now $1650 but they will knock off 10%....). But the questions are what accessories should I get with it. I have been told that it's worth while to get the casters ($188 extra). But what about a front roller ($77)? The guy at the shop said I should get both but then he is selling them....

Yes, the above seems spendy but I can't seem to find a good used on locally and I am getting tired of mowing two acres of grass with a walk behind mower (Yes, it takes about 9-11 hours of walking back and forth in a sort of trance...)

Thanks

I have a Woods RM372 which is mounted on a 1953 Farmall Super C. I bought the anti-scalping roller about two years after buying the mower. My 2+ acres was a horse pasture and is very lumpy. The anti-scalping roller was a relatively small extra cost that has been very worthwhile.

I have a 6' woods belly mower on a Ford 960 and the caster wheels came with it but I went back and got the center roller. It is a big improvement. You'll be glad you got it all.

I don't have the rollers but wouldn't think of not having castors. They go in the front and take the weight of the mower off the lift lever. The mow hight is set with pins at the rear but it is a longer distance to the front wheels which would be your front gage wheels without castors. A totaly floor flat lawn would be fine without castors and mine is not. I have a 9523 Symplicity with a five foot mower with the rollers in the rear and it does do a smoother job of mowing but is not near as much fun with the high trafic going by with the rubber neckers looking at the little B Allis.

If your lawn has humps ,get the roller , it will keep it from scalping. If your lawn is flat don't get it.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
