Adj. of a Woods Belly Mower on a '39B

Well I got a new Woods mower for my '39 B. It's all hand controlls. But nowhere in all of the paperwork does it say how I am supposed to have it adjusted... Should I have it hanging from the chains when on level ground? Should it sit on the casters? Should it sit on the roller? The paper work has leveling instructions but not what I am after. All and all it's a pretty stout unit and I am impressed with the construction.

I have the same set up. First make sure the front is lower than the rear. Or you will run out of power. Then the caster, roller and skids should be the same height. It will take some trial and error to get the mow height and all the other heights set. But, the chains should have some slack when in mowing height to get good float. Too much slack will get you in trouble if you hit a big hole.

His dad was a hard-working farmer and the children worked hard everyday to help ends meet. In the rural area he grew up in, the highlight of the week was Saturday when many people took a break from their work to go to town. It was on one such Saturday in the early 1940's when Sam was 16 years old that he ended up in Dennison, Kansas to watch a demonstration of a new tractor being put on by a local dealer. It was an Allis-Chalmers tractor dealership, ... [Read Article]
