Lift advice

Postby Rusty red » Fri Jun 07, 2019 3:44 pm

When I purchased my cub the rear lift wasnt on it I'm wanting to purchase one for it but can't decide on a hand lift or touch control lift. I will be using it for a 193 plow, a small brinly disc and a rear blade. At least for now. Any advice is appreciated

If you have Touch Control, I would go with the hydraulic one.

I have not used a hand lift but have to believe raising implements gets old fast. Your arm won't be getting any younger either. Finally, you'll pay a sizeable chunk of the touch control price for a manual lift.

I used a hand lift for years on my first cub, and it was pre3tty good, but you had to remember things like only try to raise the plow while moving forward, or after backing up. The spring is adjustable for load. that said though, arthritis made me put a hydraulic lift on that first tractor several years ago.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

I have a touch control unit on my cub that I just rebuilt. The only reason I was considering the hand lift was I thought it might give me finer control with the blade on the rear.

Was curious since you mentioned a rear blade. Only one I know of is made for fast hitch. Of course, you may have one that’s fabricated

Would be interested to see a photo of the blade.

The blade is homade. It appears that it was originally made to hook up to a brinley style lift. My dads cousin gave it to me at the same auction that I purchased my cub at ,it was with a pile of stuff he bought.

With a blade, it would be easier to achieve multiple preset ‘settings’ with a hand lift. With hydraulics, you can set the stop for the blade to lower to certain point. Personally, I miss my 54A blade. Plan on getting another one and belly mounting it with a hand lift
