John and Ron are right on the money. Nothing is quick and easy unless you have a fast hitch setup. Even then, the Cub-54 series blades are still going to take a little time to hook up as they do not use fast hitch technology.
Do yourself a favour though. Actually get an original of the 54 series. As you can see on the server under Implement and Part Sketches, home brews can be made for just about anything. Take my Snow Plow for example - good idea, plows snow real good, but is totally useless for grading. In fact, as is it is even limited as to what it can do plowing snow.
Boy will I be glad to get my Cub-54 Blade ready this month. Sometimes compromising is required until the right stuff comes along.
Now, here is the GOOD PART!
My wife has fallen in love with our '57 Cub and uses it all the time for mowing, light disking, and lately for pulling debris from Hurricane Ivan to the burn pile.
Momma is in love with your Cub
This is a VERY GOOD THING
This should be an easy excercise to convince her that you absolutely need another Cub just for the Cub-54 Blade setup
That way, you can leave the blade in-situ and still have the other Cub to do the odd jobs and chores around the yard.
Next, convince her that you need a Lo-boy with a good finish deck to do the mowing, and of course another Cub to handle the Cub-22 Sickle Bar Mower chores.
Oh, lets see
Wherecan we go from here. Up to 4 already and I know that there must be other dedicated chores we can think up if we put our collective heads together
