New guy with pic and front blade ?.

Postby BeRad01 » Thu Mar 14, 2019 7:54 pm

Hey guys,
I am fairly new to posting here though I be been lurking for a year now. I live in SWVA and have a lot of experience with cub cadets but have only had my cub for a year now.... and love it. I use it mainly to mow my horse pastures and pull the wagon. Here she is:

I also found this on my way home from work.

My question is: What else do I need to attach the blade to the tractor? I feel like something is missing.

Looks like the lifting arms are missing.

I got pretty much the same set up with my tractor except you're missing one part I have and you have one part I'm missing.

Assuming you have the standard draw bar for the tractor you only need to find or make a rock shaft extension to belly mount it. If you'd like to do that I can post dimensions to make one.

bolt spacers.

Welcome to the site. Is there any chance the seller of the blade has the missing hardware? Chances are good that he has it but maybe didn't know. Now that you know what you're looking for, I'd stop back to check with the seller....

Yes 3, the boomerang (1), the link (2) from the boomerang down to the lift arm (3) that pivots on the axle hanger.
As Rick said if your lucky the PO might still have that hanging on the tractor. Hopefully he didn’t sell the tractor separately with those parts still mounted. When I got my Lo-Boy the plow mounts were still attached. Thats probably the primary reason these blade setups get split up. If he doesn’t have them those three things can be tough to find by themselves but someone here might be able to help. The axle hanger bolt is usually missing because it’s usually rusted and snaps when you try to remove it. It’s ok because that’s the easiest part to get.
TM tractor parts sells them.
$10 each for the locating blocks (2 needed) and $11 for the rod. I recently bought 2 sets, one for my neighbors tractor and one for the shelf. ;)

Update, PO couldn't find missing hardware. I guess am in the market for some lift arms for a 54A.

Hi,
Below is the Cub 54 Blade owner's manual, if you don't have it. It has lots of info. :)
You don't use the manual lift lever shown in it, if you have Touch Control.
