5' blade on cub

Postby jayc1945 » Mon Feb 09, 2015 6:17 pm

hey guys! i have a guy that has a 5' front blade off a super "a" and says it will work on my 53 cub. will the linkage and all hook up o.k. or will there be some alterations needed to make it work? i really don't want to alter anything on my cub, but he says it's going to fit, he's asking $250.00 for the blade, any informative thoughts? all are welcome as allways! he says all the linkage is there. THANKS!

No, does not fit. Cub blades are quite plentiful, I'd hold out for one.

That same blade around here would bring $400, twice what a Cub blade brings. Blades for an A around here are hard to find.

It will work ONLY if the brackets and linkage have been modified to fit the Cub. Otherwise, as Thomas says, the answer is No.

THANKS! to all you guys for the info, I don't doubt this guys intentions but, i'd rather get one without altering ANYTHING, i'm not above changing some things if need be, but i'd rather it be the real deal if you know what i mean. i guess i'm a "half fast purist" if you know what i mean? ......THANKS AGAIN!

Here's a couple of pictures from the forum of an A blade mounted on a Cub, sorry don't remember who posted but someone might recognize it.
