The answer to your question is yupper
Here is the manual - Cub-144 Cultivator 11-30-50
You can use the disc hillers as shown below :
or you can use the mold board hillers :
I am more used to the mold board hillers as we plant without opening a row, we lay out with the tractor tires, fertilize and then plant taters. We use the mold boards to bring up the hill. Different practices in different regions.
When you go to get your 144, print off a copy of the manual so you can make sure all the parts you need are with it. I have found that when I was told I had a complete cultivator it meant I had the complete Universal Mounting Frame and the Spring Teeth. I did not get the guards nor the hillers. I ended up spending almost as much to get the guards, mold board and off-set disc hillers for the 144. I then found a set of the straight shank disc hillers
