That is a pretty sweet sickle bar mower eepete! I would love to own one! We had a nice one at the farm. It was very old, but worked well. We loaned it out to our neighbor who replaced the block of oak on it with a slab of metal so it had no safety. He must have been going through some tough stuff... He brought it back in pieces... We never replaced it.

It's a 6' bar. I also priced a 7' bar. I use it to trim my two dams. I can cut the tops with my MX6, but then the edges just lean in. So I go the sickle to cut back the edges. The down angle helps too. The flaw in my thinking was that I don't want my wheels right on the edge of the dam. So with a 7' bar I could safely cut 6' out. As it is, I can cut 5' out which works OK, but more is always better. I also have a section by the edge of the pond, and I need to be two feet in on that so the bank won't collapse. The 2nd reason I should have got a 7' one is if I put it vertically and have it 1 foot off the ground, I could cut around my hay fields to keep the edges clean to "top of cab" height. This gets close, but still need some hand trimming. That's OK because there will always be some branch that needs to be beat back by hand. The other use I make of the cutter is to cut around the edges of the field after the farmer who cuts the hay cuts and bails the fields. 6 feet just fine for that. They are a little maintenance intensive, need full greasing every 2 hours of use. A full cutting of the fields and dams takes about that long, so it works out OK. I've also used it on some fields that have not been cut in a few years. After a careful 1st pass, I can cut to the inside of the field to make sure that nothing is over 16 inches tall, including small trees (mostly gum trees) that have popped up. Then I can MX6 rotary cut the field down without worrying about popping something on the bottom of the tractor as I ran over it.
Have hydraulic lift on it, it's nice. I also added a TNT to the tractor and an iMatch, didn't post pix 'cause that _would_ be CAUP.

Brian,
Here are a few of my 4520 2009
You are the first one that I have seen run 3 110's per side. How is that working for you? Do you still lose traction when using ground enguaging equipment? I purchased 2 110's per side on my R-1's.

I have been stairin' and dreamin' through the whole thread. My dad always tells me that the 3720 is mine so, i guess it is. I dont call it mine though since i havent payed for it. But i do got most all the implements that go on the 3 point hitch. :D I sure love that tractor though. I keep up on keeping all the air intakes clean and keep it greased. Check the oil on occasion and dont put it under to much stress. I run it like if it were mine. Oh, is it very hard to change the PTO seal? My dad acidentally put to much tranny fluid in it and it blew the seal and leaks oil in our arena where we park it.

Cool tractor.

I have not changed out a PTO seal before. I would look on the JDparts online site and look at the part catalog. It might give you an idea of how hard it would be to do. Do you have a service manual on the tractor?
