plow question

Postby RyanPB » Sat Nov 15, 2014 7:55 am

Hello everyone, I am new to this and I have a lot to learn.
My question is, I am looking to buy a plow for my cub and so far I have only found a few that are being sold but they do not have the adjustment handle with them. Is it possible to use the plow without the handle?

Simple answer is no. The depth lever controls the angle of the plow so it will dig into the soil. With out it the plow will generally glide across the top of the ground.
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.

Place a wanted ad in The Vine section of this forum for a complete Cub-193 plow, including the rear rockshaft and rod (unless you already have those). Something will turn up.

Sometimes you can find bits an piece to make a whole unit cheaper than buying it all as one, but you are better off trying to find it all together. I just delivered one last month on Jefferson off Rte 4 near you.

Ryan, last night I saw A Right & Left hand turn plow for sale in Perrysburg, Ohio for $150.00. Don't know if the depth levers are there but I could see the coulters and at that price they won't long. Hope this helps, Tom.

I have never tried it, but have always wondered since the rear lift does not need to go all the way down to get the plow to needed depth it would be possible to make an arm to run form the right lift arm to the drawbar to use the extra travel for the depth control.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
