C3 Mower

Postby LittleJohn » Wed Mar 17, 2021 8:13 am

Is there a web site for installing a C3 mower on a '62 cub. Looks like everything is set on tractor but I need Bolts,nuts,washers ETC to install. Also, what's the difference between a fast hitch and drawbar ?

The fast hitch is fast, and is International's proprietary answer for simpler implement attachment than the standard drawbar!

Page 14 through 18 of the international cub operators manual from 10/27/67 has a good explanation. I think there is a (similar) copy in the pdf manuals section here at farmallcub.com!

Or

Do a search on duckduckgo.com for each version and click on the pictures tab to view the differences!


The fast hitch is superior, but the downfall is sometimes hunting up the implements you want and at a price you can afford can be exhausting!

But it all depends on what you want to do with your cub too!

If your use is to have a belly mower and pull a trailer or wagon once in a while, then the regular drawbar is all you need.


Good luck! :)

Had my '62 Cub in for repair. mechanic said that there should only be ONE belt that goes around the pulleys and back to the drive. I thought there was supposed to be TWO belts. One for the Belly mower and the second one connecting it to the drive. whose right ??

The manual lists a main drive belt and a platform belt.

the mule drive and pulleys are all different between a fast hitch cub and a non fast hitch cub, the mower is the same, if you can post pics can tell you what you have

Your mechanic is confusing the Danco with the Woods set up. As Tim said the Danco has 3 belts…two for the outer pulleys too the main rear pulley and one from the rear pulley to the PTO.

I use Hamilton Bob for belts….good belts and reasonable price.
