Your DEERE #8 mower originally used a "6 series" driveshaft.

That driveline series is rated between 12 and 16 HP @ 540 RPM;s, depending upon which source you choose to rely on.

Not really sure what you are asking...but we used to run a jd #5 on a Farmall H in high altitude grass hay in 8000' Gunnison Co.The old worn out H had no problem with the heavy tough hay.

On a different note, two horsepower used to pull a mower and drive a 4' 6" sickle cutter bar. (But needed a rest and a drink now and then)

I cut many acres of hay with an 8N Ford and a 7ft NH mower. It had plenty power.

I cannot imagine a PTO shaft built to light to run a sickle mower. That does not make sense to me the only way it takes much HP at all is if its very dull and extra long.

A friend used to pull a 5 footer with his 2 cylinder 17HP Kubota, no problem at all.

We used ,continue to use, our 52 MT with a jd no5 7' mower. It handles just fine for the past 66 years. Also used to pull a NH 479 mower conditioner with our 52 A.

Yes.

That's what I said.

Parts catalog lists the U-joint cross kit as # AE793E, which is a kit for a 6R series driveline.

Well years ago when I was a kid on the home farm I mowed with a sickle bar mower with 2 horse power. There names were Flori and Tony. Just kidding you all but that's what I used.
