Another 22 mower question

Postby ericofmaine » Thu Oct 10, 2013 7:16 am

Hello all,

I have a 1948 cub pre-inherited from my grandfather. It has a model 22 sickle bar mower that goes with it that is still at his house (I have the tractor and single bottom plow). I'm going up his way next weekend and was wondering if there was a way to disassemble it into several manageable pieces and get it loaded in my truck to bring home. I've looked through the manuals, but being scans they weren't the easiest to decipher. Is this something that would be possible or am I fooling myself. Thanks in advance for the advice.

Sickle bar mower that nearly took my toe off as a kid.
Plow that is complete overkill for the garden but I use it anyways!

Eric, if you remove the pins where the three main sections fold it will break down to three manageable pieces.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Referring to the page below from Rudi’s manual server, Bill is talking about the clevis pins at 3 and 5. The gag lever is also connected by clevis pins. You may need to remove the nut at 7 to remove the pitman arm. If so, it is a left hand thread.
