Kub Klipper C-42D belly mower

Postby MrBee » Wed May 20, 2020 1:05 pm

I recently picked up what I believe is a Kub Klipper model C-42D belly mower. There seems to be very little information out there on these mowers. I am looking for pictures/diagrams to see what parts I may be missing, if anything. Any leads to a source for new blades and replacement parts would be very helpful. Thank you.

Try the search feature and you should get some info. There's been a few posts on Kub Klipper mowers in the past. Also ck the manuals at the Quick Links tab, upper left corner of this page.

the company is long gone so you will have to dig deep to find parts or fab them, may be able to match a blade up with another brand

Thank you all for the info. Does anyone happen to have pictures of this style mower? I have found plenty of the round style, but none like what I have. It is more octagonal shaped.

Click on "quick links" (upper left of page), then "PDF manuals", then "Farmall Cub", then "Cub attachments", then "mowers". For some reason I can't post the direct link. Sun Mastr-Kub Klipper at the bottom of the list.

Octagonal sounds more like the Dance (IH) C2 mower, most Kub Klippers were round. Are you sure it's a Kub Klipper? Are there any tags or decals left on it?

It is definitely a Kub Klipper, still has the tag attached. Although from what I have seen, it is very similar looking to the IH mower. Thank you for the assistance.

The guards are different from a C-2 and the Kub Klipper has a threaded t handle to adjust belt tightness. IIRC.

How does it compare to the images I posted above? Does it match up to any of those? Those are the only models in the Sun-Mastr catalog for a Cub. A photo might help.

I believe Sunmaster was bought out by Rotomaster. That is where I got parts but that was years ago. Vern

I had a 60" Cub Clipper, years ago, it didn't look like those pictured in the catalog, posted above, either. Bob is correct about the threaded T-handle, for adjusting belt tension. That was a nice feature on the Clipper.

It looks just like the first picture posted by radioguy41. It does have the T-handle belt tension adjustment on the mule drive. Seems pretty solid and well made. Hoping to get some time soon to work on it and try it out.
