Cub with 2 engines? Yerp

Postby Shane Nelson » Fri Aug 04, 2017 8:42 am

Here's a Cub I came across on craigslist. It's not mine and I have no affiliation with the seller. It has an engine on the back to drive the deck, seems like a lot of work and expense to me. Why not just buy another mower? ... 29453.html

Looks like something Ralph talked about doing several years ago to boost power for the Cub Tug.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

About 15 or 16 years ago the near by IH dealership had a standard Cub with a similar set up to power the belly mounted mower.

If the tractor's engine were in good condition, it should power the mower with out the additional engine.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Mow much faster, like the 25 HP zero-turn!
