Would this mower do up and down banks as I see belt driven?

My guess is you’re going to be breaking pitman arms, but idk for sure

I would say not, doesn't look like a balanced head mower to me, belt is to the wrong side, pitman drive stick is still there to the cutter bar.  I guess if the road side was almost flat?

Yep, see pittman now. 

For some reason I thot all belt drivens were balanced head.

My bad... nevermind.

I believe that a lot of the mowers have belt drives, pitman or balanced head. They usually have different size pulleys to speed things up. The balanced head is what you need for mowing angles.

at one time we used a Massy freguson belt drive mower and we mowed banks almost straight up with NO problem.  Mark, I'd start with a small bank and gravitate to a steeper bank to ease your mind on this.

It looks like a small point fast hitch mower, model C-21-P if a single spring in the back or a C-24-P if two springs on the back.  That would be the correct mower for a Farmall Super C tractor.  It sure would be nice to have a dollar, or a dime, for every acre I mowed with one of them.

Looks similar to a mower I had on a C.  You can mow banks, but it won't mow at as steep of an angle as a balanced head, or any pitmanless machine.

Looks identical to my FH SB.

Mod 100 maybe?

Looks just like yours but hard to see if it has 2 springs.

I passed on it.
