I have a 6 foot Sidewiner.It is rugged as hell.It will mow what ever your tractor can handle.I use a 70hp tractor with mine. Make sure you have enough tractor for the mower.

Sidewinders are very good rotary cutters. They were made by FMC. Particularly well sutited to working in the rough. They are heavy!!! Don't know what kind of a tractor you have but if it is a compact I suggest you hook up and drive around a bit with it before you buy. I had a 5' Sidewinder at one time. Just to much weight for my tractor. I replaced it with a 5' Howse. The model with the tire is very highly reguarded because it inertia it builds up helps it cut through saplings and brush better than the more common gear driven models.

Sidewinder cutters are excellent for rugged brush cutting. The tire drive absorbs shock to help protect the tractor. For additional information, please call Johnny Templeton, 731-645-1811 or email temco@charter.net.

Yes Sidewinder made some excellent mowers. They are out of business, but parts are obtainable through Modern Mfg. in Beaumont, Tx.. The old tire driven mower they made has been purchased by a company called Gilcrest in Missouri.

I have a 6 foot Sidewinder and did have one with the tire for a gear box. They are very rugged. They will mow anything your tractor can handle.I use a 70hp tractor for my 6 footer. Make sure you have enough power.

Today's Featured Article - The Engine Rebuild Kit - by Curtis Von Fange. I always liked engine rebuild kits. They have all the replacement parts for overhauling an engine without going to the store to get gaskets, special measuring tools, or miscellaneous parts. They come neatly packaged, clean and tidy. But it's important not to let that packaging lull you into a false sense of security. The appearance of matching sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings can cause frustration and agony if not properly measured and installed in a workshop environment. Following c ... [Read Article]
