Another question (144 cult. rear arms)

Postby BullDAWG » Wed Aug 21, 2019 7:04 pm

My SA has the regular SHORT ARMed 144 cultivators, my problem is I have the tractor spaced to drive over 4 ft. wide raised beds and the rear arms for the feet don't go out far enough for them to cover the tire tracks (I actually want to put hillers there to throw dirt onto raised beds) any ideas of how to extend them? Did IH make some that are longer? I was told the "CUB" arms that are slanted (45 deg. vs 90 deg. like mine) are longer and should work...

Any help would be great, thanks........ Chris

I'm not sure if your beds are 4 feet, plus the space between them, or if the beds are 4 feet on center.

To my knowledge, there were three versions of the rear gang beams for the Super A.
1) Short with 90 degree bend. This beam has a round front that goes straight into the bearing. It is for rows up to 44 inches.
2) Longer with 90 degree bend. The beam bolts to a separate gang beam head that goes into the bearing. It can reach rows up to 58 inches.
3) Long with about 45 degree bend. This bolts to a gang beam head like #2. It works with rows up to 68 inches.

If your beds are 4 feet on center, either options 2 or 3 would probably work. If your raised beds themselves are 4 feet, you should be OK with option 3. The beams for the Cub cultivator don't share any parts with the Super A cultivator. I don't know if they would interchange or not.

Yes Jim, and I was told that the cub with the 45 deg beams are the same as option 3, the round end on both the cub and the SA that goes into the bearing are the same diameter so I could just pull the carter pin and replace the beams with some from a donor cub cultivators. The raised beds are 4' wide so I have my SA set to max out on right side and offset out 2" on left to put the tires over 4' apart. I actually like the look of it as it then looks like a Super C with a wide front end (tractor looks like its NOT offset anymore) Though the front end king pin is still offset. But it looks more like a regular tractor as the short axle side is offset out while the long axle side isn't offset hardly at all... It feels more stable on slopes this way too. I just wonder with this offset what the weight on each wheel would be.
