Last time I checked there was never a Farmall cub "bulldozer"
Bulldozer refers only to a continuously tracked piece of heavy equipment.

I assume you are referring to the grader blade on the cub.

What you want is the hanger for the Cub-22 mower that bolts to the side of the torque tube. That allows you to use the fast hitch with a mower attached, by hanging the mower.

HOWEVER, don't figure on being able to plow with the mower deck attached. The mower will drag when the tractor is in the furrow. You need to remove it to plow.

I have a Cub-22 mower as well along with the C-2 and a BushHog brand like the C-2 . I think the C-22 bracket is too low. I like the idea though I will just have to make a higher bracket to hold it up higher though. Maybe you're right though. I never gave it much thought but the plow I am using is adjustable so maybe ? It's ok thought I have 3 other mowers and 2 other cubs so I can work something out. If you have ever handled the C3 it is not that easy to load and unload off the tractor. Maybe one day I can make a special tractor lift. The C-22 is already a pain in the arse enough to get off by yourself. I think it's just easier to buy a cub for every implement I have haha. I wish!

Im just going to fabricate a new bracket. I'm not going to canabalize the c22 to hang the c3 .

I am curious. Will you be able to mount the front guard without the guide wheel rubbing? Mine is all apart now but as I recall, the clearance can be a little tight between the wheel and the guard and bumping it out a 1/2" may be an issue. Not that I have a guard to put on- but they are easy to make and still available. I have cast some stones a very long way in the past. :shock:
