Sickle mower pulley size

Postby v w » Sat May 11, 2013 5:06 am

Can anyone tell me the size of the pto pulley used to drive a 22 sickle mower? Also the belt length? If it can be found in the manuals point me to it, I can't find it in them. Thanks. Vern

I use a 4 1/2 inch pulley and a Gates B43 belt. The pulley is quite pricey.

Assuming you have the Cub-22 mower version and not one for a loboy, like Randall said, there were two pulley and belt sizes made over the years:

1947-1955 years:
4 1/2" dia. pulley - IH part #451356R2
belt - IH part #452197R1

1955 + years:
4" dia. pulley - IH part #457291R1
belt - IH part #457292R1

When looking for pulleys, don't confuse a 4" dia loboy pulley with a 4" cub pulley, the loboy version is made thinner.

Here is an earlier project and post in which I participated.

The pulley works well.
