C-3 Mule Drive

Postby Fred19Flintstone » Fri Feb 03, 2023 10:27 am

I’m dreaming about spring.
I have an International C-3 belly mower. I had a fast hitch system on my Cub, but I have removed it so I can more easily mount & dismount my Cub. Is there a difference in the Mule drives for a Cub with a Fast Hitch system vs one equipped with a draw bar?

yes different mule drive and you use a right angle drive for the pulley, look in the manual section for C3 mowers in the manual it will show pics

I know that asking where to find the proper mule drive sort of belongs in the Vine, but the problem has already been illustrated here. I have been using a right angle drive already with the fast hitch setup. I was hoping, now that I know the mule drives are different with Fast Hitch Cubs as opposed to draw bar Cubs, to find the correct one. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

If you already have the fast hitch mule drive, I am not positive, but think you might be able to use it (with the plain drawbar) with some spacers made up.

I don't know if the fast hitch mule drive will work when fast hitch removed. Here are some pics.

if the fast hitch is removed you can use the regular setup
