What is it for?

Thu Nov 15, 2012 1:44 pm

I may not have this in the right place, but it is for working on Cubs. There is clue/'nother part if not guessed.
I got the idea from a similar idea in the archives.

Very interesting. Does the threaded rod move the 2 plates in and out ?

If you, or anyone for that matter, built it for Cub work then I would say it is in the right place and would be Cub related. I tend to agree with Rudi. I would think it is an elaborate splitting stand.

Yep, it's for spittling a CUB . The arms of a pallett jack slide through, the for lack of better description, slots, and the straps bolt under the arms so it won't tip front to back. The uprights slide together onder the block with the oil pan on or off and the lock nuts on the all thread lock it so the block can't slip through. Lets you block up the back and roll the front away. Has approx 4" lift. Hope to use it at Chapter 27 Cub Fest(hint, hint)

Rudi,
I neglected to take pictures as we built it. We used Farrell's Cub for measurments. I got the pallett jack for less than $50 last year.
The two H frames came off a couple of junked Farmall A16 sickle mowers and all the rest of the steel was on hand.
The rest was just welding it up. I've seen setups I like better, but this material was on hand.

Well all I can say is that it was a very good use of material on hand. Very interesting take on a splitting stand, very interesting indeed :D
