3160 versus 3160a versus 3260

Postby rcupka » Mon Jan 28, 2019 5:12 pm

I have recently purchased a 1972 Cub 154 Lo-Boy with a 3160 belly mower. I do not know the difference between a 3160, a 3160a or a 3260. I see various references to all here. Which is most desirable for general mowing, etc...? I have included pictures of my tractor

Above link, discussion from over 4 years ago.

Use what you have. Need to understand that the Numbered Cubs were estate tractors, lawn mowers. Do ok is you keep the grass down, not so good if you let the grass get ahead of you.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Great looking 154 you have there. Grill is still in good shape as well! As for the difference in the mowers, all 3 mowers do a great job. Be sure the deck is adjusted so the front of the deck is about 1/4" lower than the back and keep your blades sharp.
- Maybe in another thread you can tell us about the car in the background of the 2nd and 4th pictures.

Thanks for asking, it is a 1960 Lincoln Continental MarkV that I am preserving. Barn find that was abandoned for 30 years. I am out of town but will post some pictures when I return and have access to them. I see you are from Michigan, I drove it in the Woodward Dream cruis the last three years and always have it at Ann Arbor's Rolling Sculpture show.

Nice! Thanks for the update on the Lincoln. Woodward Dream Cruise is a great weekend! (getting to be a week long event)
Need one for tractors!
