Cub 3 field cultivator

Does anyone know if I can attach this to the front part of my fast hitch or will it not work on a fast hitch? Would really like to give it a try. I think it is a cub 3 field cultivator but will take suggestions if it turns out to be something different. Thanks. Eric

Hi Eric, was that just at an auction in CT?, yes that is a cub 3 , it is designed to work with the draw bar turned around backwards so the hitch would be under your feet, look in the manual section for the operators manual, what did the cub go for at the auction?

Hi Tim. I don't have a draw bar--just fast hitch. The front of the fast hitch has those 3 holes and I'm wondering if it might fit in there.

There is price and then there is cost. price was $10. However, cost was 1/2 hour of hard labor to chip away maple tree root that had grown around one spring tooth. Then, I tripped while moving it and caught my foot on one of the flipped over teeth. Ouch--still black and blue but the hole in my foot seems to be closing!

I have used mine on the fast hitch cub tractor. I made a couple brackets to bolt onto the front of the fast hitch were the holes are that were previously mentioned. One on each side of the fast hitch drawbar. Then just used a spare fast hitch point with a chain from it down to feild cultivator. Worked good for me for several years till I got another tractor.

Thank you for the advice. This solution seems very do-able and glad to know it works! I'll keep you posted.

Update: Found an old draw bar (from an A?). Had to drill 1 hole but everything seems to line up. I had to soak the old attachment points in kerosene for a week to loosen the pins but everything eventually came loose. Also found a fast hitch point from the PO and rigged up a chain. The original chains are still on there and i can spend some time to attach them properly. Wheels were very hard to turn but located the zerks and now they spin freely. I need to adjust some things but this seems to have worked and it will get the big test this weekend. Nomad
