    Post John Deere No. 3 Horse Drawn Pull Sickle Bar Mower.

    My Uncle passed away in May and my Dad is going through things for the estate to be sold. Dad wanted to leave the John Deere No.3 Sickle horse drawn mower there for the new owners of the house. I pestered Dad pretty good about taking it with is. I made a deal with Dad that we at least try to pick it up with the 44H and if it gives us any problems we will just leave it be. We did not have one issue with it and almost seemed that it wanted to stay with our family. Below are pictures I took of the whole ordeal and the last picture is where it sets till I can get the time to start its restorations.
    If by chance the links to the pictures go dead feel free to E-Mail me and I will send you the pictures. WOEII@AOL.COM

    I also am having a hard time finding information on this mower. Would like to know about the tow bar and if the original was wood or metal. Also at the end of the sickle bar the shield if that was wood or metal as an original. Bill

    Update 01/04/2012
    I have since wrapped up the sickle mower and stored it in a nice spot for future restorations. I also have come across a show in NY a couple years ago that had a fully restored No.3. I have pictures but will post them up in a couple weeks when I get to my computer in NY. I also have links for parts like a new pitmen wood bar. I wanted to repost this for any more people that come across a No.3 so we can make this the main hub for info and links.

    Thanks,

    WOEII/Bill

    Every couple of months I receive an email about the No3 and I have decided to post up pics if the send them.


    Kathy from KY sends a picture of her #3 that's been in this spot for 25 years.
