154 loboy info

Tue Dec 07, 2010 8:45 pm

HELP: I have a 154 loboy w/ belly mower,(just got It) I"ve seen other 154s with front plow blades & rear 3pts. Can these be added to all 154s or did they have to come with those options. Just starting to learn about my new baby. I also have a old (1959?) IH tractor w/ a front loader and a backhoe that I'm going to need some help getting info on.. Hope someone can help me out Thanks Larry

You can do anything if you have the money. There's a used 3-pt setup on eBay from hamiltonbobscubs that is listed for $745.00. This doesn't include the "selector" valve that gives true independent movement of the rockshaft or 3-pt. He also has the valve listed for $295.00.

As you can see, it gets real expensive real quickly . . . then you get to look for and buy 3-pt implements. Of course those don't "have" to be IH branded.

Hi Larry,
Before you buy a 3 Point be sure you need one. They are expensive. Also, be sure you can find the correct implements. The 154 3 Point 154 impliments are hard to find, and if you use regular 3 Point equipment you will need the very hard to find "Reverser" . The reverser changes the direction, reduces the speed from 1040 RPM to 540 RPM and changes the size of the PTO shaft.
Good Luck

Also be aware of the lifting capabilities of the loboy. When it comes to using the 3-point with a disk or other implement it is easy to overload the 3-point and lift the front tires off the ground.

I have the 3-point and it is useful for the IH Tiller (which is designed for the loboy), a rear blade, 1-bottom plow, limited use of a small disk, carry-all and 3-point lift pole.
Other than that, most of the loboy tools were designed to be underbelly or front mounted.

Thanks guys for the info, I have gravel driveways and I'd like to have a 'RAKE'( I think thats what it's called?) and a blade for the rear of my 154 to help with working on the drives, etc. **"A front blade would also be nice for snow duty" ** Thanks again for your Input guys!!!! Larry
