140 HC cultivators

Postby Langfarm » Tue Aug 08, 2017 6:52 am

How much longer are the shanks on the High Crop feet than the standard 140 cultivator feet?

On a cub the short ones are 9 1/4 and the long ones are 12 1/2. I had seen where someone said high crop cultivators so I'd assumed they just used long shanks in all places. The A should be similar. An A parts book would show the sizes and if there is a "special" high crop one, but I do not have one.

I'd have to check but I'm pretty sure there's no difference in the length of the shanks between a V or HC and a regular height tractor. The universal mounting frames have an offset in the bar that sticks into the steering gear housing to lower it, and I think the rear gang brackets are made to lower the rear gang bars as well.

Yes, I believe Al is correct. The rear pressure rods are also longer.
