Dan:

I am not sure which mower you have. Danco made 2 60" mowers for the Cub that I know of from the manuals. If it is the IH Danco C-3 60" Mower then the answer would be yes.. there is a manual for the C-3 on the server IH Danco C-3 Mower. The Cub with Fast-Hitch mounting instructions aret here also.

However, since the one shown is missing the rear mounting bars, could this be a C-1? If so, then there is also a
2 different C-1 Rotary Mower Manuals and the Fast Hitch instructions are there as well. The forum software doesn't like the link but it is in the Implements Index.

Hope this helps a bit.

The mount and drive hardware is what makes the fast hitch mower different because the fast hitch interferes with the standard mower hardware. The mower decks are essentially the same so you need to examine the accessories to know which machine to deck attaches to. This being said, are you sure the deck is actually designed for a Cub?

Dan:

I am no expert.. but looks to me like the C-3. You may need different mounting brackets to mount up with a Fast-Hitch.. but the manual has all of that.

David:

I finally found my IH 3160 Rotary Mower Manual.. and looking at it, the pulley is similar, but the rear mule drive is not at all, and the deck itself does not resemble the one in Clem's pics. Also the mounting bars are straight and not curved like the 3160. Gotta check the 3260 manual.. but I think it probably is the C-3 :?: :?:

Looks just like the Kub clipper I had on my demo. I remember the big guard. It's to big of a mower for a cub, it's also way way to heavy. It would work well under a super a.
