Just wondered if anybody knows if there are any sickle bar manufacturers for lawn tractors out there. When I was a kid, way back in the 60's, my father had a Massey Ferguson lawn tractor that was somewhere around 10-15 hp. He had a 4' (I think) belly mount sickle bar for it. I'd love to be able to find one that would work on a JD X320 lawn tractor. That thing was great for trimming along the edge of a pond and along a long driveway that the goldenrod is hanging into and sweeping the car as you go up the driveway. Seems like something like that would be in demand by some lawn mowing guys. I know it's a real niche area, but a sickle mower could be put on an old tractor that was being used as a spare or something. City lawn service companies probably wouldn't have a use for something like that but us guys out in the country could really use one. At least I could use one on a couple of accounts. and it would be a lot easier and much faster than using a trimmer. Along a pond using one would just cause the grass to just lay down and be easily raked up rather than turning it into confetti spreading it all in the pond. I just remember using it all the time. Our driveway was about 2 tenths of a mile long. That would be a lot of string trimming. I know most folks don't have driveways that long, but around here there are a lot of ponds and embankments that need trimming. I have a customer that has two ponds and doesn't want the grass going in the pond so I picked up a Stihl "power scythe" attachment for my FS 90 trimmer and it works great. The only drawback is the cutting length is only 9.8" long and her ponds are pretty big. All the while I was trimming, I found myself fantasizing about that sickle mower from the dim distant past. Oh Well. So if anybody knows if or where such a thing can be had, let me know. Thanks.
