You would have to take off the depth control and hook it to the rear rocker-shaft to lift the plow OR have an old hand style lift that came on cubs without touch control. I personally like that idea as with the hand lift you can also then lift the cultivators in the front with the touch control and the rear cultivators after you drive to the same end spot and hand lift the rear cultivators. Its like the poor mans version of the SA with dual touch control.


The rear rock shaft is moving close to horizontal at the low end of its motion. The front rock shaft on the other hand is nearly horizontal when lowered.

I have enough slack in the chain to keep the rock shaft from pulling forward that there is about 1/3 of the touch control travel still available when the plow is fully in the ground. It seem that if that front link were the proper length that 1/3 could be used for depth adjustment.

When raising the plow the front would come up first which would cause the plow to climb to the surface without pulling it up from the rear. Not an issue with touch control but I see where it could be very beneficial with the hand lift.

Thanks for all the help, I have located a lever and hardware. Once again much thanks to all.

Hi,
Below is the Cub 193 Plow owner's manual. It has lots of info.
You don't use the manual control lever in it, if you have touch control. That lever goes to the left of the seat.

Glad you found a depth control lever. You do need that lever, it goes to the right of the seat.

If it is still original, it uses the IH tapered head implement bolts to attach it to the right final drive holes.
TM Tractor has new bolts, if you need them.

Glen, I was referencing that he was using the front touch control to do the depth control like the SA-140's do BUT to make things simple, I was saying instead of possibly having issues of trying to lift the plow AND do depth control on both the front and rear using the cub's "1" touch control, I was saying to use the manual lift control to lift the plow and avoid any issues and as a side bonus it also allows the cultivators to be done like the SA-140 and lift the front cults when at the end of a row AND then lift the rear cultivators once you drive 2-3 feet farther and the rears get to the end of a row.

BUT all this is now irrelevant as he is getting the proper depth control to use the 193 plow... (ps congrats on getting the parts u needed :) )

Hi,
BullDAWG, I just wanted to post the Plow owner's manual above, in case farmalllove didn't have it.

I wasn't commenting on what you had written, it does look like useful information.
