I have a 65 model 100 and an Original that's a 62, both have the 3 point for a sleave hitch for the back. They are great for a small garden.

I have a moldboard plow, disk harrow, and thatcher and always looking for more. I had a 149 hydro that I traded for a 154, I hope to bring it to the Cubaramma.

104 weight

I have one Cub and five Cub Cadets. I have a question about a 104. Does anyone know what it weighs? I just bought another 104 and was taking it off my flat bed with the bumper crane (loaded it off a lift table) and I thought the crane was going to quit. It is a 1350# crane. I don't think a 104 weighs anywhere near that. Might have a problem with the winch.

Thanks moe1942

Roughly speaking.....

A Cub Cadet weights in around 600 poounds. Add weight for acessories.

A mow deck can add about 60 pounds, Wheel weights 52 pounds, 3 point about 25 pounds.

I weighted my #73 a while back. It came to 640# with a mower deck. A #104 probably wouldn'r vary too much.

Does the rating of your crane depend on how far it is extended? They usually do. Maybe you were reaching too far for the load you had.

Thank you both for the reply. I was thinking around the same weight.

Jim, my crane has a fixed boom length, but has two height positions. It is new. This was the first time I used it. I think I had better check my electrical connections. Sure would hate to burn out the winch motor.

I have more experience on CC's than Cubs, so I will be checking in here often. I have a OPE repair shop, small scale. I specialize working on Cub Cadets and cast iron Kohlers. I just never had a need for weight of one of these jewels.

If I can help in any way just holler. I have manuals for the older CC's and I have access to part smart for CC's and Kohlers.

Guys, I've enjoyed my 51 "big" Cub for a few years and have finally gotten paint to dress it up a little (it's a working tractor ) My problem is I needed a snow plow so I bought a littte cub for that and somehow another.One is a 60 with front plow and 38" mower other is a 62 with the front blade. I'm amazed at the way they're built and how & HP can push snow Gotta watch out theese old IH's are addicting Ken in Pa :)
