Woods C1 mounting.

Postby LRiddle » Fri Mar 25, 2016 10:51 am

Ok, I need help again. I have a woods 59 c1 that appears to be complete, but mounted wrong. The deck doesn't sit level, but slopes upward toward the front of the tractor. The manual for the mower doesn't show it installed and searches on Google images and videos have offered no help, and I haven't seen any solid info on the forum about it. If some one has pictures of one correctly installed, or can offer instructions on it, I'd be very grateful. Below are pictures of my current set-up.

If you need any more shots I could get some more with different details. Thanks in advance. :surrender:

The problem as I see it is the guide bars that are connected to the finals are in the wrong place. They are supposed to connect directly to the mule drive and allow the deck to go up and down better than the way it's hooked up now. Here's a link to Rudi's Manuals for reference http://www.cleancomputes.com/Cub/OEM%20 ... %20Cub.pdf
The center bar is what controls the general height of the back of the deck by which hole it's positioned in. Let us know how it works out. Since we're practically neighbors I'd be happy to help you out if need be. :coffee:

Not familiar with this type/model mower but as a general statement the front of the deck needs to be about 3/4 inch below the level of the rear of the mower deck. Looks like the angle brace from the rear of the deck to the front of the final drive has holes for adjustment which might do the trick. I can't tell from the pictures if you could raise the casters on the front to drop the front of the deck but that might get the blades too close for a desired cutting height. The mule drive is quite the hefty "lash-up". I don't think you will have any trouble with it.

EDIT: I see SmokeyCub has posted better information.

I'm not as close, however, you're close enough for a MicroFest to help sort out the mounting. Looks like everything is there, it just has to be rearranged a bit. Like Ray said, :coffee: is good.

A mini-fest could certainly be in order. My wife wants a garden this year, but I don't have a plow or fast hitch...

Just the reason you need to get another CUB......one for her, dedicated to the garden and one for you, dedicated to mowing. Be aware though that there's lots more plowing/gardening attachments than mowing attachments. :lol:

Lol. I think it'd be cheaper to buy a fast hitch. But I like the way you think.

How big of a garden do you want? Do you have a draw bar? I don't know how well those turf tires will work pulling a plow but I could let you borrow my 193 plow. Ironically the deck would have to come off. I've got cultivators and discs too, just so you could see how they work.

I don't think we'll have that big of a garden since it will be our first one, but thanks anyway. We also have a tiller and a rotary plow for the Gravely L that my dad always used when I was a kid.

Well there ya go. That Gravely will do it.
One more thing on the mower deck, I was wrong about the guide bars connecting to the mule drive. They connect to the attachment arms (item 24 on the schematic) and they bolt onto the forward set of holes on the finals. Yours look to be bolted on the back ones.

Looks like you have most of the required pieces, but I have never seen them so creatively installed. Do you have the standard Cub drawbar? If not, that is the missing piece you need to mount it correctly. The cross piece on the rear should be on the drawbar brackets (the fix for your front-high problem) Here is a picture Buzzard Wing posted long ago that shows one mounted correctly. Look closely below the platform.

No, it doesn't have a drawbar. I've been looking for one, but haven't bought one yet.

To add to what Jim Becker posted: the 59-C2 diagram illustrates the mounting better. Move your L-shaped drops to the forward holes in the finals and flip them around so that the tab faces rearward. Then the horizontal arms from the deck attach through the bottom hole.

You don't necessarily need a drawbar, just the plates that the drawbar attaches to (or some of your own fabrication). JP Tractor salvage has them for $30/used or $60/new.

I had spacers on mine, took them out when I installed drawbar anyone who wants to pay shipping can have them. You need a drawbar , I know where one is if still there. I have 193 plow and depth control if interested.
