differences in implements ? old lo's vs #'ed loboys

Postby BullDAWG » Mon Feb 13, 2012 7:34 am

Is there differences between implements for the old loboys (non #'ed) vs 154's/185's/184's ??? I can see the old lowboys are just lowered cubs with same attachment points as a cub AND the lift is in same place as cubs BUT the #'ed (newer loboys) use a channeled frame and the hydraulics are different... So can all the implements interchange between the 2 different types of Loboys or are there old and new mowers/plows/etc ????

Yes, all of the implements are different.

The snow plow for the number series utilizes the same blade, but there is a frame mounting bracket and different lift controls.

All of the rear-mounted attachments are different because the number series lo boys utilize a Cat-1 3-point hitch, and the older style lo-boys and regular cubs utilize a fast-hitch system.

So, none of the implements will interchange between the old style and number series lo boys.
