Rivet tool for sickle bar mowers

This tool, with a wrench, is all you need to remove and replace rivets when replacing the sections on a sickle bar mower. The tool on the left is for punching out the remains of the old rivet, while the tool on the right is for "spinning" down the new rivets.

      As far as I know, it is just called a rivet tool for sickle bar mowers. I got mine from a local ag supply store that is also a Valu-Bilt dealer. I *think* that Valu-Bilt handles them. I managed to lose the "anvil" piece that goes under the punch, and a machinist friend made a replacement, But if you need one of the two upper pieces, then your best bet might be to contact Valu-Bilt. They have a website and an 800 number <www.valu-bilt.com> (I just looked on their website and couldn't find it, but that seems to be the rule, rather than the exception.)

          I need to update the caption - Valu-Bilt is now CT Farm & Country (It was Central Tractor before it was Valu-Bilt). They are now owned by the Alamo Group, which, in my personal opinion, is not a Good Thing, for a variety of reasons related to Alamo's pricing and business practices.
