My wife test drove "her" cub for the first time this weekend. She is just over 5' tall and her feet will not reach the pedals, not enough to safely operater the tractor anyway.

I moved the seat pedistal all of the way forward and we used a boad seat in place of the cub seat, but still no good.

Has anyone seen a pedistal or adapter with a slide to adjust the seat that will work on a cub. This is purely a saftey issue, we will paint it red and swear it isn't really there. ha ha

thanks guys,

Bobby, when I got my 184 Lo-boy, the previous owner had welded an extension on the clutch pedal so his daughters could operate the tractor. He just bent a steel bar with a 90 degree bend and essentially raised the pedal about 4".

Wooden extensions

One of the tractors in the old neighborhood had wooden extensions on the pedals. The farmer had drilled two holes in each pedal and then sideways through a couple of two-by-fours and bolted them to the pedals. They were on there really good, and raised the pedals by just enough for him to reach them (he was a little vertically challenged, but still sat in the normal seat/position.)

You might have to buy "her" an Original Cub Cadet?!
