Loader Question

Fri Feb 04, 2005 4:14 pm

Anybody got a cub with the two arm loader. I have seen a photo of one in Updikes Cub & Cadet Book but never seen one on an actual tractor. Are parts for them hard to come by? What would one cost if I could find one in decent shape?

About the price of 1 1/2 to 2 cubs.

I just recently picked up a two arm loader for my 49 cub. It is made by Wagner. This is the trip style as Wagner made two for the cub. One that just tripped the bucket and another that had a hydraulic cylinder to power dump the bucket. This should be very handy when I install this spring. Just received the hydraulic tap-in block from TM Tractor.

I'll try to get some pics as soon as the snow melts a little. I picked up mine from a guy here in CT for $700, minus the rear mounting brackets that I need to make up. Trying to locate someone with the same model to get measurements. Wagner, IH, and Henderson are the loader makers for the cub that I know of. Of what I have heard, best to least went as follows--IH, Wagner, Henderson. Prices for an IH loader as crazy though--one is on eBay now for around $2,400.00!!! :shock: I have a copy of a the Wagner loader manuals--model WM1 (trip style) and the 45 (Hydraulic tilt bucket). Let me know your name and address via e-mail for a copy.
Thanks, -Eric
Also keep your eye out for someone with a model WM1 (trip style) as I need the rear mounting bracket measurements.

Here's Mick Johnson's Lo-Boy/loader at CubFest 2003. I think,(but I'm not sure) it's a Wagner.

Judging by the manual I have, that loader looks to be a Wagner model 45, because of the tube design and hydaulic dump on the bucket. Does it look similar to the one you are looking at? I wish I could have found one like that with the power dump. To dump mine, you pull on this handle connected by 3/8" rod and a spring loaded pin lets the bucket free fall. To reset, you simply lower down and the pin clicks in again. But as I mentioned before, the price was right! 8)

2-arm tube-frame loaders were made for the Cub by Henderson, Twin-Draulic and Wagner, maybe others. Henderson made 3 versions that I am aware of.

I have a Wagner model WM1. Does anyone have this same model loader?? :?: This is the trip style dump bucket. I badly need measurements for the rear brackets. Please help :(
