Hello , to "The Big Red Nation" if you please. I own a 1951 Farmall Cub with a belly mower and a home made snow plow. I just got a very nice, like new Leveling and Grader blade for it. Its works a whole lot better than the plow that I had on it before. Had the hydraulics rebuilt in 2004 and a total motor rebuild in 2007. I am intrigued by the "power angle" setup that I have seen on this site! Since I am sneaking up on old age and have 2 replacement knees, I want this setup on my Cub! If anyone out there can explain how to "plug" into the tractors hydraulic system, it will GREATLY be appreciated. I like the idea of the 2 inch cylinders . I am assuming that I must have a 2 way control to operate it? And is 8 inches of stroke enough to turn the blade adequately? Thank you............. :help:

Welcome to the Forum. Here's a link to a couple of designs that were done a few years ago. There have been more since, but these may get you started. There are several Forum members that are very knowledgeable about hydraulics, so ask questions as they arise.

Florida Does sound great, BUT right now I am looking forward to pushing some snow with my new plow! We usually get hammered here in Western Pa! So far, it has just been cold, very cold.

Welcome to the forum from just up the road in the northern suburbs of Pitrsburgh! Keep on posting! I'm hoping to try to host a get together sometime in 2014 for folks to get together and talk about, work on and work with their cubs!

Welcome to the forum. Send ricky racer a private message about the power angle. He did an amazing job on his. We'll have to get together this spring. Grump
