This may sound a little crazy, but.....Does anyone know whether a front loader from a Massey-Harris 22 could be mounted on a '54 Cub? It has hydraulic cylinders, hoses, etc.

If you have the time and ability to fabricate, I'm sure it can be made to fit.

^^^This.The only thing is how much will it take money wise and fabrication wise? If it is going to take a lot it will be more valuable to you than anyone else and if you ever decide to sell it nobody is going to want to pay what you will have in it and it will be a custom fit. Think about it before you dive in!

There are Wagner and IH 1000 loaders out there for the cub. It may be less expensive to go that way and have something with a better resale value than a "made to fit" unit. I have an IH 1000 on a Cub and it is my favourite Cub but it has limits. It basically is a wheel barrel with hydraulics. Great for small jobs moving dirt and largish rocks or a downed tree. It is not going to help you build a septic system or dig a pond. Keep the limits of the a loader on a cub in mind before you take on a custom loader project for a Cub.

I agree with the others. You may be way better off to sell what you have to someone who can use it and use the proceeds towards the correct loader for a Cub.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

A Massey Harris 22 is a much larger tractor than a Cub, a little bigger than a Farmall C. A loader off one of these tractors is going to be much heavier than is required for a Cub both in weight and in structure.

It is likely that the loader frame will have to be narrowed and shortened significantly in order to fit it on the Cub and make it light enough that you can still steer the tractor.

While it can be done it might be simpler to start from scratch.
