Tyler - oh, yes, you're correct - I think that's called the pitman arm, and
it is made of wood (presumably so it will break before something more
expensive does). I haven't broken one yet, but I understand it's not
uncommon to do so.

@Brian93ist - thanks - I have to vary speed based on field conditions. On
that day, it was cutting really good at that speed. Some other days, I have
to cut in 1st gear.

Looks like it's working pretty well. Looks like a decent sized field too.

@jburrows2009 - true, but then I only hay about 10 acres... when the sickle
is working good, its actually a very pleasurable way to spend an afternoon.

I spent many an hour mowing alfalfa while growing up in South Dakota. We
had a Ford 8N and JD No. 9 mower. Used to dread it every summer; now I'd
give anything to live on the farm again.

that would be a long day on the tractor cutting hay like that

@stembre When we get mowing our 12 acres of field we break at least 1
pitman a year, normally on the first more because they rot over the winter.
LOL

Yes, Tyler, the wooden piece sticking up out at the end is called the
swarthing board - it makes the cut grass lay over so it leaves a clear
patch the next time I come around (compare the edge of the cut row as I'm
looking forward with the grass as it's being cut when I'm looking backward).

@stembre i under stand know i should have put that coment on the other video

@BillTheTractorMan - I've only broken one pitman so far... but then I'm
only cutting this one field (10-11 acres) each year, and the sickle bar
stays under roof when not in use.

@brian93ist - If you're meaning a drawbar like you'd find on an old Farmall
M or such, I do not have anything like that... my sickle bar had been
converted to work on a 3pt hitch, which is what I was doing here. I do have
a drawbar that fits on my lift arms, and I use it when pulling the baler,
etc.

Oh hello! Have you heard the talk about - fast abs magic (Have a quick look

about it and my BF got beautiful 6 pack abs and lost crazy amounts of belly
fat with it.
