Hi all, I wanted a mid mount sickle mower for the Earthmaster but finding an original Earthmaster mower is next to impossible, so I adapted a IHC L-22 mid mount sickle mower to the Earthmaster. Completed the distillation today (will paint it next fall) and gave it a test try, its a keeper worked great. I had to fabricate a new forward mount and a aft mount plate, a new drag rod mount and the pitman drive shaft and DS housing had to be shortened 13.5", the biggest mod was cutting the keyway in the shaft.

VERY nice job, is that a mower intended for a Cub or such tractor?
