It's a manual rockshaft converted to use with hydraulics. Or at least that what it looks like. I'm looking on my phone so hard to tell much about it. It should be usable at any rate.

Partial photo of the rear rock shaft shows up in photo #5.

The seller in THE VINE frequently sells on this site. You have asked the right questions.

Think the price is more than fair. Shipping will be the largest expense.

Have you contacted the advertisers on this site? I would wait a bit before purchasing. There may be someone much closer with a complete unit.

Cub express may be an option.
I have an excuse. CRS.

It should be there. It's the sideways photo (kind of awkward to look at).

Must be my windows browser. I don't see anything that looks like a rear lift.
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.

I'm hoping I have the correct rear rockshaft already (are there different kinds for hydraulic vs. manual?)

I added a photo of the rear with a closeup of the rockshaft I installed: http://elderberryhillfarm.com/Cub_Cultivator.html

Someone on the vine is parting a few cubs and offered to sell a complete hydraulic system for $200 + shipping. Seems like a good deal- any specific questions I should ask before buying it?

Sounds like a great deal if working. Don't feel Robert would steer you wrong. Perhaps you might find a Cub Express to save on the shipping.

$200 sounds like a real fair price if it's a working unit, considering what new cylinders and control valves cost.

This may be beside the point, but I wanted to add my two cents: I use the standard cultivators on both of my cubs a lot--one has hydraulics and the other has a hand lift. I far prefer the hand lift when cultivating, since it gives you a whole lot more control to keep the cultivators right where you want them. The hydraulics don't move in real time, and can dive too deep or rise out of the soil if your bed isn't perfect. If that's all you're needing to do with your lift system you might consider saving the money and just installing the hand lift.

do you use the downward pressure when cultivating with the TC? I know you're supposed to let most implements dig under their own weight, but not sure about the cults.

cubs dont have power to put down pressure on them!---if cultivator is working properly you actually need to hold UP pressure to keep them from going in too deep! ( at least on mine that is the case) thanks; sonny
