Depth control lever

Postby Dusty B » Wed Apr 18, 2018 4:50 pm

Is the depth control lever for the regular moldboard plow the same one that is used for the fast hitch depth adjustment? Dusty B

No. The lever used on the Fast-Hitch plow is part of the hitch and different from the plow lever.

Hi,
They are different lever assemblies. Below is a page from the Cub 193 Plow owner's manual showing parts for it, there isn't an assembled pic that I saw.

Below is a page from the Cub parts manual showing the Fast Hitch lever.

Below are pics from TM Tractor of the 2 levers. The first 2 pics are the Drawbar lever, and the last 3 pics are the Fast Hitch lever. :)

Radioguy, the one you have is the later model adjusting lever. It serves the same purpose.

Hi,
radioguy41, that looks like it is the depth adjusting crank on the LoBoy, for a Fast Hitch. Does your LoBoy have the rest of the Fast Hitch.
Below is a page from the Cub parts manual showing it.

The regular Cub was changed to a depth adjusting crank too, in about 1957.

Some prefer the earlier style lever as adjustment can be accomplished while "in motion", especially for plowing and grading.
