Chain Sickle MowerWe had more than 600 inquiries from FARM SHOW's report on on our new chain sickle," says Minnesota farmer Willard Pearson, of Dawson. "We'd like to work out a licensing agreement with an interested manufacturer."
Operating much like a chain saw, the sickle chain uses conventional sickle sections placed side by side in a continuous chain. A hydraulic orbital motor allows the operator to vary chain speed. It can be run clockwise or counter clockwise. All sections wear evenly.
Pearson, who has installed a working prototype on a 7 ft. hay mower, says the invention will adapt to fit combines, swathers and mower-conditioners of all sizes ù even flex heads.
