I have a wagner and have found it handy. WIth the proper weights on the back it steers ok. I also have a mower under it, and a fasthitch. I use it move stuff around the yard and occasionally move small amounts of dirt etc. It is the later wagner, and I can get it on and off in about 30 minutes. I also have a larger tractor with a much bigger loader but use this much more as it is easier to fit in small spots and move around the yard. I take the loader off in the winter and use the regular plow blade then. For me it makes the tractor more useful and fun.

I have found a twin-draulics loader “thanks tst”and am in the process of readying it for install on my cub. I have two sets of weights for the back wheels so I’m hoping that will help with the traction and maybe a little steering help also putting cub cadet rear wheels on the front to get better floatation. The tractor that the loader came from had the front reinforced with a gusset on each side I will do this also. The only other thing I’m going to do is find away to reinforce the front mount area. I’m not going to do much work with the tractor maybe keep freshly plowed snow banks back in the winter and bags of soil to the gardens that kind of thing. My enjoyment will come from driving it around and admiring my labour

Here is a picture of my cub with loader and mower - I also have the lowslung exhaust and a fasthitch. Normally have 300 lbs of weights on the back which helps make it steer better.

Totally fun. Not a giant but works well for the small stuff. It is a later wagner, and as mentioned in post above and takes me about 30 minutes to take on and off (I have a bigger loader - an old jd I use to put it on and off. The cub is better for doing things around the yard.).

I have a Wagner loader for my cub, its presently just the mounting frame on the tractor. Its very handy but limits what you can do with the tractor. I am going to eventually move it to my lo-Boy if I ever get some shop time, to free up the Cub for tillage etc again. It makes the tractor top heavy which is something to remember but it is very handy. We have a Kubota B7100 that can lift more and carry more but is limited in height, the Cub can dump over the side of a small Dump Truck which was very handy loading out Horse Manure when I was composting a lot, back in the day, and hope to start up again next year at the new place. I definitely prefer the Cub without the loader on it , its not nearly as maneuverable with it on, its like putting a snow plow on a Porsche 911, but if you have a need for it its handy as all get out. One other thing when I first put my Cub back together when I got it from my Uncle I took it to a show, more people wanted to know about the loader, what it could lift etc, be prepared to answer a lot of Questions if you take it to a show.
