TC and hand lift

Postby ajhbike » Sat Jul 22, 2017 8:55 pm

Anyone have a set up to use the TC on a front mounted snow plow and a hand lift for a rear or belly mounted plow?

Just trying to set up a hand lift to use for my rear cultivators. When master control lever is all the way forward the rear lifting arm is only a few degrees over horizontal. I bolted the on the rear cultivator lifting bar on and if I adjust spring pressure rods all the way up I can just get clearance under the rear gangs. Has anyone else run into this or could my unit have been bent or broken and re welded wrong. Hard to tell if factory weld. For sure the rear lifting arm doesn’t go up as high as on a tractor with hydraulics. Any opinions? I’ll try to resize some pictures

Hi,
Stevetractor, Below are pics from TM Tractor of a manual lift lever. They all have the lever in the raised position, I think. The bottom pic on the page has a close up pic. You can see the angle the rockshaft is at.

Below is the Cub 144 Cultivator owner's manual. Page 12 shows the manual lift lever in the fully down position. You can see the angle the rockshaft is at. :)

Thanks Glen. I did look at the pics from TM before. Wish the shot of the lift arm was taken straight on. I went up to the barn tonight and got the angle off a couple of hydraulic lift arms and will try to get hand lift one in the ballpark of those at my friends welding shop. We shall see how it goes. It’s not an exact science really as long as I can gain some more clearance under gangs.

Why not cut 6" off each rod and re-weld the ends on, then set your feet up a couple inches higher. Might work. If you'd like, I can take a picture of my rear gang tomorrow. And maybe get you some measurements. Just let me know.

Well it’s on now and looks pretty good. Clamped it to my friends heavy steel bench and went at it with the torches. Few kinks here and there from 70 years of use. Looks like handle may have been broken off rockshaft arm at some point and maybe was welded wrong explaining low rear lift height. Heated the shaft red hot between the two bushings and adjusted arm height up. Went well. Cultivators are now on just waiting a day or two for the 1.5 inches of rain to dry up a bit we got today. Thanks for all the responses
