Artie (articulated cub..pics added)

Wed Aug 31, 2011 6:05 pm

Here is one I am currently working on. I have it to the drivable stage and it is currently in pieces being painted. The front is a 129 Cub Cadet and the rear half is from a 147 Cub Cadet. Maybe some day I will get it done, but work has been getting in the way. :roll:

Jim, what will you use it for once painted and complete?

Still think it looks like a mini earth-mover. 8)

I was wondering because if it were 2WD on the rear wheels it would need a whole lot of wheel weights for big time traction.

It's just going to be a toy to take to the tractor shows.

It is 4-wheel drive. The drive shaft comes off the engine to the back of the front hydro. Then another drive shaft off the front hydro to the rear hydro.

Here is some more photos. viewtopic.php?f=2&t=58236

If work keeps getting in the way I don't think so. But work puts the food on the table so it has the priority. I don't think Sandra and I will make Stonethrow this year. We will miss it.
