Some people are both clever and ingenious.

David, Your link just takes us to a home page. Could you be more specific on where to look?

Thanks, Bob

Appears to be manufacturer's stickers on both sides of the frame. Was this something sold commercially?

Hi,

That's a Manitou Mc5 (cub based forklift) Chassis. misses the elevator.
what makes my cub very rare is that it's the only one I've ever owned.

Looks to me like the name on the side is "Braud & Faucheux". That company later became Manitau. We have seen pictures of a Manitau Cub fork lift conversion posted here before. The price looks fairly reasonable at about $1,100 US. However, the mast and hydraulics are not with this machine. You only get what you see in the color pictures. The B&W picture is from an old brochure.

Edit: I see yaume got in while I was typing.

That should be just enough to cause some confusion at the next parade line up. :lol:

Even better if we could get "John *.?-!.* cub owner" to push a trailer with it! :lol: :lol:

I can't help but think one speed forward, three in reverse (?).
I've seen VW power plants and transaxles used to build some pretty cool trikes. The first question I had when seeing one of those was that the bug power plant was pointed the wrong way for forward. To make it work the ring gear was flipped to run the proper shift pattern in the new (opposite) direction.
Is there any mention of a similar mod?
Mike.

Cub Cadet and M/Super M gears were flipped. CC because the engine ran opposit direction, larger tractors to run "backwards " for cotton picker mounting.
