There was a fellow that mounted two blades on a Cub and posted several pics of his setup. I have tried several different searches without success. I was thinking his forum handle was Dan Henderson -- but that didn't return anything in my searches. Maybe someone will remember his name and be able to help find this. His mounting was hydraulically controlled and well done.

You are thinking of Dan Robertson. We haven't heard from him in the better part of a year.

My comment was not intended as discouragement, but trying to point out what you had to allow for and watch out for. In my 35+ years of driving, repairing, and sometimes modifying cubs I have probably broken more stuff than most people have seen. As an example, I can even tell you why the Howard Despeeder states it should only be used to reduce speed, not to increase pull, or what happens if you are plowing snow at about half throttle in 3rd hear and hit a frozen in place rock. Not only as to what happens to the tractor, but what that steering wheel feels like when it stops about 2 feet before you do. :big crying:

you are part of the problem!!!

I would be more inclined to mount the wing blade on the right side of the tractor. The tractor is already heavy on the left side, and while it doesn't have a tendency to tip over normally, hanging all that weight way out on the left might make it tipsy in certain situations.

Not to mention, it will also be easier to see, and therefore to control. Plus it will feel more natural to be on your dominant side.

Thanks, Jim. Here is a thread that has a couple of videos and several pics of Dan Robertson's setup. Runs the whole outfit with a bank of four hydraulic valves. Could be some food for thought in here: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=75654&hilit=snow+blade

It WILL work in light snow, and once you use it and find out just what it will handle , then you can make final tweeeekin adjustments ! To wing back drifts, keep front blade up and take light cuts with the wing!----I drove Cat. 12-E's for 30 years and 1 # 14 with wings and big vee's on the front, so I am quite familiar with how it works! It will drive differently than what you are used to, but start slow and work your way up!---You and the cub wing will do just fine! thanks; sonny

I fully understand the beauty of the angled side wing and don't intend on a thread hijack.
Any thoughts to just taking an old blade and cutting it in half and adding a foot or two to the length of the standard blade? Seems to me the wear edge and top extension mounting holes could be used to bolt the outboard extension wings. Add the common modification of a cylinder to change the angle and the snow should fly away in fear of what is coming toward it.
Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.

I'm not sure the blind side of the tractor would give you the best view. You can't see much of the left side of the front blade without leaning over. I know this is farther back but I would set it out there in a mock up and see what I could see. I'm thinking right side for better visibility, tuck it in a little more to make sure nothing rolls off the right of the front blade and misses/rolls off the left end of the wing blade. Would give you a little better coverage in a turn as well. Having it on the right side and mounted whole or partial to the final, you might even be able to use a 193 depth lever to lift and lower it. If you mounted it so it would pivot/angle then it would be faster to adjust by not having to get off and walk around the tractor. Make it pivot 90 degrees to the tractor and it would be easier to get through gates and garage doors. That's my brainstorm thoughts.

I had a thought the other day about mounting it 3pt style but off the draw bar. You could off set it so it wouldn't build up behind the rear wheel, and still use the rear rocker arm for raising and lowering. You could even pull the pins in the draw bar mount so it pivots, like when plowing.
