    Sounds like you have a bind on the sickle. Maybe it's bent somewhere or something is jammed in or under it?

    The sickles can be sharp,, but, if the hold downs allow a gap,, there will be no cutting,,,

    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    Welcome to GTT
    Is knife drive arm tight on wobble box shaft? Is sickle head tight?
