have ya'll seen one of these?

Sun Jan 20, 2013 6:09 am

Image Image Image i bought this tractor a while back ,great runner , no smoke ,the transmission is almost silent, and these impliments together. the woods (?) mule drive was made to accept the tool bar . the owner said he got the setup when he bought it , he was not sure if it came from woods or PO modified. the ears on the mule drive that accept the tool bars bar are abot 1/2" thick steel flat bar about 2 1/2" / 3" wide and bent on a very small radius, and very professionaly done . it looks to me to be a very difficult bend for a "home shop" to do. buuuut, then again . its a slick setup , the tool bar is much easier to hook and unhook . since it is shortened, is it now a cub-4 tool bar ? :lol: . it digs fine like a uncut one . .....................................coppersmythe..............ps: just curious to see if anyone has seen one before

Interesting set up. Haven't seen that set up before. I have a set of disk like that but I think they are a size larger than a cub, but no bar to put the on with. Anyway, looks interesting. Thanks for sharing.

F7 toolbar with disc cultivators. It is in the 1957 version of CBI-2A rev 6 http://www.farmallcub.com/fcman/download.php?fname=./files/Implement%20Parts%20manuals/CBI-2A%208-15-55%20rev%206%201957%20OCR.pdf

That's actually a Cub-6 toolbar that has been modified (cut down). The brackets that connect to the finals have also been cut and welded to the mule drive.

they cut off part of the mounting brackets and welded to the muledrive, then cut the tool bar arms a bit shorter. that would be possible for the average bear. coppersmythe.......................they did a durn good job of it .

Good catch, Raymond. The F7 is the Fast Hitch version. Gary Boutwell posted some nice stuff on these building raised beds in black dirt soils.

Definately a modified cub 6 toolbar. I have seen all sorts of modifications to these toolbars down here allowing you to keep the mule drive on. I must admit, this is probably the best mod I have ever seen.
