1960 International lo-boy mower deck questions

Postby Masmith » Thu Nov 17, 2016 12:55 pm

Are the mowers and brackets the same for F cubs and lo-boy's, with the rear pulley system being the only difference? I have a 1960 Lo-boy that I bought without any implements. I am finding it almost impossible to find a mower set up and snow blade for the lo-boy, but finding plenty for Cub's. Although the lo-boy is my favorite, at this point I am considering selling/trading it for a F Cub so I can actually use it for something. It will only be used for grass cutting and possible snow removal. Any advise from those who have used them would be great.

The short answer to the question is, no. As for selling the Lo-Boy and getting an F-Cub, I wouldn't. For mowing, the Lo-Boy outshines the F-Cub. A tighter turning radius make the Lo-Boy much more maneuverable, an advantage that you would appreciate.

I've used both to plow snow and I really appreciated the maneuverability of the Lo-Boy.

The right mower (I'm a big fan of the Woods 59) and blade are out there, you just have to be patient.

Thank you for the input. As a hobby finding the stuff is half the fun. I'll keep looking.
