PTO to Sickle Bar Mower Belt

Postby Faithracer » Wed Apr 23, 2014 8:54 pm

Any idea on the belt size for my sickle bar mower? I'll include pick, but I don't have one from the back. It's a small belt, from the PTO to Sicle drive...

Thank you!

I have the same plow/grader blade but it is installed much differently. Is this the correct/preferred way? Beautiful Cub!

Posco: check out TM Tractor (one of our sponsors) for pictures of various model blades and setup. Scroll down to Leveling and Grader Blade here: http://www.tm-tractor.com/gim/gim_001.htm. Also, check out the manuals section for the Cub-54 installation instructions.

Faithracer: very nice Cub with blade and mower!! Welcome!! :coffee:

How is yours installed? I assume you're talking about the front installation, that's the way it was on it when bought, we can also install it directly under the midsection for leveling/spreading.

IIRC, specifically the belt is a B43 with the larger pulley, and a B42 with the smaller pulley.

Thank you all so very much for the great welcoming, ideas, and suggestions. One thing I forgot to mention is that the pic I listed was just for show, I only use 1 accessory at a time. Plus, I have a disc plow, and to belt systems to run a saw mill off the PTO, pretty cool (one looks absolutely brand new!).

Thank you all again and God Bless!

It looks like Bob got you the belt size info. I was going to ask how that mower connected with the blade attached but you answered that before I could ask. Nice looking Cub for sure.
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.
