IHC No. 9 horse drawn sickle mower

Postby Paul Van Benschoten » Mon Jun 03, 2019 2:41 pm

I just brought home a No. 9 mower in decent shape. It had been "modified" to be pulled behind a tractor. I did get the long tow beam and the 3 part yoke(?) to attach to the draft horses. Fortunately, I did not bring home any horses :lol: .

I don't know if yoke is the proper term.

I searched the PDF manuals on this site and on the web in general, but I have not found a manual yet. Does anyone have online already ?

It has been yard art for a few years, but it does seem to operate and the tires hold air.

I assume you are referring to eveners. Do a google image search for that word.

I can't help on the manual.

The "long tow beam" would be the tongue. The "yoke" is what I grew up calling a doubletree, eveners would work too.

Thanks Jim and Bill.

I want to get this cleaned up enough for the July 4th parade. I will add a cutter guard before it goes anywhere.

I hope to get some pictures this weekend.

The tongue was a piece of landscape timber which broke when we moved the mower. I will replace it with something similar so I can move it onto the driveway to work on it and get pictures.

The long tongue and eveners for pulling with horses are in the garage for now. I don't want to leave them out in the weather.

Some pictures:

I put a piece of landscape timber on it for now so I could move the mower.
