Cub blade

Postby Masmith » Tue Apr 04, 2017 8:36 pm

I have a chance to buy the Cub blade in the photo for $150. Seems like a nice deal. The other blades I've seen have the spring on it. Not sure if this is a complete set up. Also a sickle mower for $100. Not sure I would ever use the sickle mower but the price isn't bad.

The arms that do the lifting appear to be homemade, possibly copied from the way the blade for a Super A works. The 2 arms that go down to the blade, and the rest are standard for a 54. 54A had the extra spring assembly on the lift. If It were me I would grab it for $100 and smile all the way. One thing to remember is the lift will be reversed with that set up. Pulling the lever back will raise it and pushing forward will lower, which is the opposite of all other cub implements, including the blades.

Mike,
There is a mish-mash of pieces there.
Look on TM Tractors site at the How to hook up implements section.
You'll see that this owner has cobbled together something that may work but it is not a complete factory unit.

I have located another blade several weeks ago that is all original and complete. Including the normal rust that goes along with it. It is priced at $250 and may be worth the extra $100 to have a normal complete set up.

You got that right!
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.
