  • 8n with 501 Sickle Mower/Tedder combo
  • I finally have my "prototype" working and wanted to share.

    I have figured out how to connect my tedder to the back of my 501. So, I'm tedding a row I just cut while cutting a new row.

    This is the first time trying it:

    This is it actually working yesterday:

    I apologize for the video quality in the second video...my wife's phone is better than mine.

    what gave me the idea is seeing a manual on this site for a 510 conditioner being attached to the back of a 501. I had to make my own hitch.

    Enjoy

  • That is a neat idea and seems to be efficient.

  • That's pretty cool, Israel. A nice time-saver - pretty efficient.

  • Thanks Ed.

    After raking the hay yesterday, I could see a difference in quality from one field where I didn't do the combo (b/c is was very small and had trees)...and the field where I used the combo that was wide open.

    The Irony now, I can't find the publication that showed the pic of the 510 being used behind a 501. I remember it was the last page of a manual and it was in color.

    Can you help?

    Thanks
    Israel

  • Neat idea. I have a 501 that came with the PTO adapter on the back, but the glitch is that the hitch also included wasn't installed and I can't make heads or tails of it. Some vital part must be missing. Tedder behind the 501 is a very good reserve implement should we break both of the discbines at the same time.
