Oldest Cub with rear hydrolics

Postby Cub cadet-108 » Mon May 29, 2017 6:09 pm

What older model Cub Cadets had hydrolics on the back?
I'd like to put a small three point hitch on an older Cub.

Cub Cadet has never offered a separate rear hydraulic lift on any of their garden tractors. Having said that, they have always offered a rear mechanical fit that operates with the mid rock shaft that is used to lift the mower deck. So, the earliest Cub Cadet that used hydraulic lift as factory equipped was the Cub Cadet 149 and 169. The next series, 1250, 1450, and 1650 all had hydraulic lift. After this, nearly all of the hydrostatic drive model tractors had hydraulic lift standard.

Now, technically you could have equipped any of the old Cub Cadets, going back to the 70/100 tractors, with "add on" hydraulic lift. Cub Cadet offered this hydraulic pump that mounted to the right of the dash tower and ran by belt drive to the flywheel pulley, and provided hydraulic lift as a bolt on option for any garden tractor, gear or hydrostatic drive.

The add on hydraulic system was a option for the Original Cub Cadets too.

Keep in mind items like lights, electric start (Original, 70, 71 and 72), rear lift, fenders, PTO to run mower (Original, 70/100), hydraulic lift, mower and fenders were options too.
