Two clamps on the square tubing part of the three point mast would allow some lateral adjustment,

The hubs and rims from a standard Cub bolt up to a numbered Cub low-boy.

Edit: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=91475
about 5 posts down in the topic. Check the different hubs, rims and tires.

My little 10hp/100 cadet only tills every springtime.

Funny I thought it had a rod knocking. I took it easy on it. The rear generator had a bushing bearing that let go. The engine is very quiet now.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

is this a viable option to add to help with mowing? I have noticed that I have occasions, when the grass is tall or thick, that even 1st gear is too fast for the machine to cut.

Not a viable option based on my experience. I own a 154, creeper gear, 60" belly mower. To cut tall fescue pasture grass it takes 2 or 3 passes, creeper engaged, each time lowering the deck. And some times the tractor struggles with the first cut, full height of the mower deck.

Tried my Cubs with rotary mowers several times on tall pasture grass. I mow tall tough grass with a WD Allis, 2nd gear, and 5 foot trailer type rotary mower. One pass with the mower and it's done.

If I could start over again I'd buy a farmall super A she's a tad more heavy duty over the cub series.
