Cultivators on the cub?

Postby Dieselrider » Thu Jun 02, 2016 7:44 pm

Hi folks, Been awhile. I have a question regarding the model 144 cultivators on the cub tractors. The bar and spring on the right side of the tractor that raises and lowers the cultivator. Parts 4, 6 and 28 in the manual. Push pipe, push pipe extension and the spring. How do they work. Yeah, I know, they lift the cultivator but, why the spring, Looks like it is completely compressed already so what is it's function? Does it actually flex in use? I am usually too busy trying to avoid the plants to watch the tool. :mrgreen: Thanks for your expertise.

The spring is pulling on the cultivator, not pushing. The spring allows for some flex if you hit a rock or hard ground.
