4WD Cub

Postby Smokeycub » Wed Jul 17, 2013 7:47 am

Found these pictures on another site. Thought I'd share.

I can't tell for sure if it can be disengaged or not.

Somebody went through a lot of time, trouble, and $$ on this project.
I don't think he'll fit a mower deck under it anymore...
...it just so happens I have one of those golf cart diff's in my shop... Hmmm!

That was built by Dan Hoffler of Kaukauna, WI, and yes it can be disengaged. He also built a crawler from a Cub Cadet 100, and a CC 100 Hi-Clear.

I saw his other projects too, all very good. This one grabbed my attention. The man has talent for sure.

From that full rack pic I guess we all could handle a few more cubs... if space were the problem.

I think the pix and drawing pretty much tell the story.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Nice work.

I been thinking about a 4x4 like that. Taking the drive from the rear axle but you need a spool in the rear. Plus a locking diff in the front. Full 4x4 for the woods off road no baby or toy.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Using an older jeep willy's drive train you can shorten the longer tube and get a new shorter axle from whitney or a parts house for both diffs. Using the 4 cylinder f head, transfer case and tranny there's not that much to making it happen.
My jeep tractor has lasted for two decades+++. It will still be running when I'm long gone.

Someday I'd like to build a 4X4 tractor inbetween the size of a cadet and 154. This would allow me to use the jeep drive train and engine.
