There was no real stop date. It all depended on whether the buyer wanted hydraulics or not.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

What's the latest year Cub seen that had a hand lift? I saw a 51 Cub with a hand lift from factory.

The latest I have seen is a flat grille Lo-Boy. Evidently it started life with a belly mower. I don't remember the year, but '63 or later.

This has nothing to do with your question, but my 48 (bought 35 years ago) had a hand lift. There was a cultivator installed, but brakes were useless so owner had installed one shovel on the cultivator and turned it backward. That was his brakes. :lol: I left the hand kift on and fixed the brakes, since with belly mower all you did was let mower down to start, and raise it when finished, and for leveling or grading it was much more precise than a touch control. It was not very handy for plowing though, you either had to be moving forward and pull back hard so the plow tapered up out of the ground, or back up. Impossible to lift the plow with it stationary in the dirt. I finally replaced it about 10 or 12 years ago with a touch control due to arthritis in my shoulders.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
