Fast Hitch Mower Pics???

Postby jostev » Sat Jul 01, 2006 4:52 pm

I have a regular axle mount sickle for my C, I got a fast hitch conversion (so he said) from a friend and I think it should bolt right up to it, but some things don't line up, such as one of the sliding mounts on the left side(standing where the tractor would be, looking back) it also mounts to the right alot more than the regular axle mount did. i don't have any pics right now of what i mean cause it's pouring outside...

so i was just wondering if anybody has done this before, or has pictures of a regular fast hithc sickle that i could have, they would help me alot i think...

Thanks for any help

1) Stand behind the tractor looking at the seat. Find the side the cutter bar sticks out from. That is the RIGHT. Please call it that.

2) Picture 1. You probably need a different coupling bar brace, or at least a different front bracket for Fast-Hitch.

3) Picture 2. The "what is this" hole is for the draw bar brace. The other end attaches to an axle clamp. You probably don't have those parts either.

You are going to have attach the front end of the coupling bar brace somewhere somehow. It is all that holds the mower from swinging back like it does on a break away. You can probably get along without the draw bar brace.
