A fasthitch question

Postby Rick Prentice » Sun Aug 12, 2018 7:47 pm

I'm equipping a cub with a fasthitch I acquired. Once the hitch was mounted, these holes had me curious what they could be used for. Anyone know? Hope this isn't a stupid question on my part :help:

That’s where the rear cult arms mount

Edit: pretty sure they’re not called arms, but the correct terminology eludes me at the moment(crs I guess).

Thanks Thomas. Now I know also the reason for those two longer cross pins. That had me scratching my bald head too.

Yep, you got it. I didn’t learn this until I got a fast hitch, so you’re in good company :-)

Hi,
Below is a page from the Cub 144 Cultivator owner's manual showing the rear mounting with a Fast Hitch. They are calling the parts Gangs in the manual.

Below is the whole Cub 144 Cultivator owner's manual. It has Fast Hitch, and non Fast Hitch info. It was made in 1965. :)

Hey Rick, glad to see you still playing with the Cubs. Remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question.
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.
