Good article, came in handy for working on my 479 haybine in preparation for next hay season. I agree with your safety comment about the hitch, keeping it hooked to a tractor is much safer.
Thanks for the article and outline on replacing the sickle bar belt. It is a tough one. Your article was a great help. Thank you!
