Snow Blade for 185

Postby Bob McCarty » Sat Jan 23, 2016 9:37 pm

I was asked if it was the same as for an F Cub and know it wouldn't be. However, I'm not sure there is such a beast. If anyone has one and can post a picture or two of the mounting, that will help him decide if he should buy it or not. I thought there might be a chance it was the right blade but the seller didn't know what an F Cub was.

Thanks, Bob

My 154 has a blade hanging on it and the push frame looks homemade and blade wont raise but 1 inch off the ground!---haven't had a chance to start cutting the thing off yet, --- don't even know what the blade is off of,--looks like regular cub, and rigged under the 154,--(same as 185) thanks; sonny

Here's a couple of pictures of one on a pallet for a 154/184/185.

The blade itself and the blade angling mechanism/subframe is actually exactly the same as a standard cub. The mounting hardware is all different and is actually just the L shaped plates that you see in the foreground of the picture. Also, since the rockshaft on the Lo-boy is under the belly they just use straight bars as lift rods, rather than the scissor mechanism on standard Cubs. You can see it all assembled here.

Gitractorman - If you connect your horizontal lift bar (mid lift to front bracket) to the forward hole of the front bracket then you will get more lift.

Oh, that's not mine. Jus photos I pulled from the interweb. Actually, that tractor is/was at Messicks, or at least it's their photo.

Basically the same blade and frame part as on the Fcub that goes to the loboy mounting brackets on the tractor. Here's a photo of the one I hooked up on my 184.
