I have one that I got from someone on this board it went thru 5 states to get here and I never paid for shipping just good Cub people making trips for me and then I traded some extra cub parts for it when it got to my house.
I love it and it works great. If you can find a king kutter brand there much better then the agrifab stuff.

But you can but a king cutter 3 point one or any other for that matter in the 3-point style at any auction and maybe for $100-$200 used and buy a fast hitch prong form agri supply and cut off the 3-point and weld on the one point prong. I have made some nice implements using super c fast hitch prongs welded on to my stuff.
hope this helps

I built one from a pull behind york rake. It had a carrier wit wheels on the back, could be pulled by small lawn tractor. I removed the carrier and welded on a fh prong. I like it because the rake teeth are smaller about 5/8" , closer togather and have a smaller radius. The shorter size works well on my loboy. Mine is 4' wide but I have seen them 5 & 6'

Hi Mike,

I had a Leinbach 5' that worked great on my '49. It did a nice job on gravel and for finish grading.

I sold it last year and it eventually ended up at Chad's place somehow :D

yes it must be in the name it just had to go to another Chad! I love it Chad thanks again for getting it to Ohio!
My dad used it about every other day to clean out the path to his deer blinds so he could sneak in real easy to go bow hunting!

Mike, I saw one like the brochure shows at a sale several years ago..
I didn't buy it - DUMB!
Wasn't as well versed about what all was available for the cubs at that time.
there were several other cub attachments also, same story.
Oh well...

Thanks Jim. I have been talking to Jamie about this one. Looks very heavy.

Boy!
After seeing that pic, that rake is much heavier than the one I saw sell. The one here was more on the order of a buck rake for hay. I don't remember that it was or was not fast hitch.
