I've never actually seen the complete setup for a sickle bar mower on a Cub Cadet. However, I do know they were made by Haban, and I believe they utilized the front PTO and two pulleys on the mule drive assembly to get the belt run down to the sickle mower part where it mounts in the mid section of the tractor. Those parts are standard Cub Cadet and readily available.

Haban still makes some equipment/attachments for various machines, and I would think if you have part numbers you could find what you need on the internet. Having said that, I have never looked for anything for Haban equipment. However, I would bet, based on other equipment of their's that I have worked on, it is all standard dimension stuff that could be purchased from McMaster Carr or maybe even NAPA.

The Haban Sickelmo's didn't use the cub cadet mule drive system. It uses the front PTO and has a large pulley the rides straight below the front PTO. This large pulley runs a shaft that inturn runs the back belt which runs the actual sickle mower. This is of course if it hasn't been modified. I'll try to post a pic of my Haban 402D sicklemo for ya.

Well I am getting ahead of myself the sickle bar is not yet in my hands will have it early next week , I don't know which pulley is bad but I was told the CC with Haban mounted had sat for years and as a result it sunk in to the dirt which caused one of the pulleys to get badly rusted, CC was serviced up and when the pto was in gauged the sickle bar did work but he said that pulley is so bad the a new one is needed....
