Cub and Hammer mill sizing

Postby gpcubboy » Mon Jun 03, 2013 8:08 pm

Is there a particular model of McCormick Hammer Mill for a cub? I saw a #6 advertised locally is that too big, too small, or just right? I am wanting to get a hammer mill to do some corn grinding demonstrations at our FFA Chapter's tractor show in the fall?

Thanks,

Chris

You want a McCormick 4-e for a Cub. They are sized just right. At 2:15 in the video below you will see my 4-e in use at CI Cubfest.

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Be careful about the RPM's, that the grinder requires. Many of the old ones, made for the hit and miss engines, turn at 300 RPM, or less. Cub pto, turns at engine speed. Ed

It does turn a little faster than I'd like. I have a smaller PTO pulley on one of my ford with a sherman trans that I was going to try in on in low range to see if it slows things down.
