Mounting a Prewitt digger

Postby JRS » Sat Oct 23, 2021 10:34 pm

Just bought a Prewitt digger for $200 at an auction! Already had the reverse, which cost more than the digger a few years back. Now how to get the thing on a Cub?

Just removed my Grosshart PHD and snapped some pics to remind myself how it goes on my Cub. I’ll share them with you…

Believe the Cub needs a specialty drawbar; don’t think a standard one will work. And straps.

Hope this helps.

Looks like a 5 minute job to remove or install the drawbar mount diggers! :)

I looked and studied for quite a while before removing the last bolt. That thing is so top heavy, you want to be sure of where you’re going and how to get there.

JRS: Did you get a drawbar with it? You can see from my pics that it is angle iron that spans/connects to two implement bolt holes on each side, spanned by a piece of plate across the back.

Where did you buy it?

If you need dimensions, let me know.

I got instructions on how to mount on h or m with it so I guess that is what it came off of. No drawbar, So l need dimensions to make drawbar, and where to put stabilizers. I have the Prewitt reverser to make it work. I got it at Pinckneyville, IL Threshermen auction.
