Here is a couple of pics showing some of the good uses a Cub can be put to.

Good pictures, WK.

I see how you beefed up the upper lift arms of the Worksaver hitch. You wrote earlier that you modified or changed the stabilizer. What did you do to that?

The right hand leg now picks up 2 holes instead of 1 and the sway bars are 3/8" material. The others bent under heavy side loads. So after several straightenings I decided it was time to change to heavier stock. Basically I think the way to avoid breaking something is to spread the stress out over as many bolt holes as possible in the design. The castings must be pretty darn strong as I have put them to the test quite a few times. I'm going to take pictures of all the 3pt pieces individually this week and post them. Bill
