I hate to disagree with everybody, but that hanger bracket that mounts to the cultivator socket looks to me like it is for a standard cub. It is approximately as high as it is wide, but a lo boy is only about half as high as it is wide. At least that is the way it appears to me.

you are part of the problem!!!

You need everything you see in the pix for it to work. Tell the seller you want better pix of what he has. He must not want much if you are driving that far,


Seller doesn’t want much. Plus I need one and the wife has given me permission.

Where on the pallet are the “midmount” parts we believe to be missing?

The more I look at it, the more I think it is all there except for the boomerang. It is for a Loboy and will fit a regular Cub.

John, these picks tell me it is a Loboy. The bend at the arrow tells all.

Thanks for everyone’s quick replies. I’m in the dark on this as I’ve never seen on of these in the flesh. I will ask the seller if he has the tractor this was mounted to and hopefully the boomerang.

I get that the boomerang is important for the mid mount, but what function does it serve for a standard cub plow set up? I hadn't thought about it before this, but my standard cub plow set up doesn't and never had the boomerang and seems to work well for snow.

They have the boomerang so that’s good. I’ve been wondering it’s purpose as well, but it looks like I’ll have it regardless.

In the forward blade position, the bell crank extension provides a more solid pivot point for the lift arm and allows the blade to be lifted slightly higher.

AJ, I’ll chime in and say thats definitely a Loboy plow L-54. I’ve seen them mounted to a regular Cub but they ride high like that.
If you want I have the red hanger assembly (54A as shown above) for a regular Cub which I can trade with you if you want.

Hi,
Below is the Cub 54 Blade owner's manual. It has lots of info, and pics of mounting it on the Cub. This is the blade for the Farmall Cub, I don't see a LoBoy blade owner's manual in the place I looked.

IH calls it a blade.

You don't use the manual lift that it shows, if you have Touch Control. :)

The sticker on the plow says L-54. It looks to be original paint, but if that’s the case it might never have been used. It’s in excellent shape, no breaks or welds or anything like that. I think I got a good deal because even with gas I’ve got equal to or slightly less in this than what most are going for. I’m going to try to set her up on the tractor this afternoon when I get off work.

Rjpoog1989: I'd suggest attaching pictures to your posts directly using the "Attachments" tab below the posting screen (there's 2 down there when you're writing a post, "Options" and "Attachments"). Photobucket no longer allows you to post pictures off their site to other sites (called 3rd party hosting), unless you pay them big bucks.

Here's a couple resources to help you attach pictures to posts:

  2. Forum Picture Posting And Other Interesting Things You Can Do

Anywho. Biggest issue I have is you can’t handcrank the tractor with the plow brackets in the way. My tractor doesn’t like to start with electric start. It’s a 6-volt system with pertronix. I think I need a battery with more cranking amps. By hand it starts right away, always, so it was no big deal before now...
