Virtually - none. All the mounted implements have very different mounting brackets.

Bigdog, I hate to disagree, but the pull type disk and the manure spreader will interchange. :lol:

OK - I guess I should qualify my statement. I chatted with a fellow at a show a few years back that had a cultivator set and belly blade that he swapped between a Cub and a Super A. Didn't occur to me until now that he may have fashioned his own attachment system.

Now, as for an "official" implement, IH did make the A-Cub 201 Two-Row Drill Planter. The brochure states that it is "Quickly attached to either tractor...". So there's one! :D :D :D :D :D :D

I am not very experienced with cultivators for a cub, but I can see swapping the belly mounted, maybe even front mounted blades, but the one for a cub was considerably lighter than one for a "Super A, so if not careful it could be easily damaged, and the one for a A Super A being heavier put more of a load on the tractor, especially if front mounted. I know some guys have A blades front mounted on cubs, but I am also pretty certain they are careful with them. The super A blade is wider than the cub, so you mya end up doing quite a bit of spinning using it.

There isn't a lot of interchangeability of direct-mounted equipment between the Cub and Super A. Some of the front mounted implements, although made for one model or the other, can be interchanged if you have the correct universal mounting frames for the tractor. The A-Cub-201 planter even requires a few brackets that are specific to the tractor model.

There is more interchangeability for rear-mounted Fast-Hitch implements. But even then, practical limitations come into play because the larger tractor can handle larger implements.
