Put the Haban Sickle-Mo on my 1050. One of the drive belts was a little cut up and twisted but I decided to try it any way. It worked nice for a few minutes until the 40 something year old belt started to shred. Tried one of the local auto parts but didn't have anything close.

Nah, only tried one store. Being Sunday afternoon not many choices. Should be able to find something during the week.

The sickle bar looks super. I have an area that’s about
400ft long x 7 ft wide behind a stand of willow trees
that I end up weed whacking once a month. That sickle
bar would make short work of it.

I don't really know. I only have it about two weeks and today was the first time I mounted it. The guy I bought if from ($106) sold me an extra box of 10 sickle sections for $5 and the tractor it was mounted on for $75 (not the tractor in these pics) As far as I know Haban is out of business but aside from the blades I don't think there should too many things that might need to be replaced. There are two belts, A short one that goes to a small pulley which attaches to the PTO shaft and a larger one opposite that which drives the sickle. I guess if I can't match a belt at an auto parts, I could try Tractor Supply.
