Drawbar mounting

Postby TTodd » Wed May 20, 2020 10:07 pm

I am new to my 1963 Cub with a 42" woods cutter. Can the drawbar be mounted along with the cutter. I would like to poll a treiler without removing the cutter

The Woods 42 mower is normally attached to the drawbar mounting brackets and the drawbar left in place. Show us a picture of what you have at the back.

Yes. The mower brackets clamp onto the drawbar brackets. If someone doesn't come along by the morning, I'll pull up some photos of mine. After your 2nd post, you can access the free manuals via the QUICK LINKS in the upper left corner...a drop down, then PDF MANUALS, where there should be a link to the Woods Mowers. This might get you started:

Why is that? perhaps we can help with that as well.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Here are some photos that might help:

If this is the mule drive you have...

I have found it easiest to bolt everything together OFF the tractor. It is designed to be lifted into place onto the TAPERED implement bolts, then it swings down and is bolted on TIGHT.

NOTE: Use an implement bolt to make sure that when you clamp the mower bar into place on the drawbar bracket, that you have enough room to slide the tapered bolt through the "hooked" hole. Otherwise you will have to completely remove the tapered bolts to get the assembly on and off. BTDT!! A real pain, because that assembly is very heavy!!

Here are some later photos:

Right side, mounted on tractor

Be sure you install the mower arms onto the mule drive with the required BUSHING in the large hole on the mower arm, and the washers in the appropriate positions, allowing pivoting of the mower.

Left side of mower arm (belt is not in final position...I see it is rolled in this photo!)

DSC03650 (Small).jpeg
Rear view, installed

The easiest way to install it is to grab the rear of the drawbar and lift. It will "roll" vertical. You then move closer to the rear of the tractor and hook the rear (now upper) open tapered hooked hole onto the partially (loosely) installed tapered bolts. Once both sides are hooked, slowly lower the rear of the drawbar, allowing the forward hooked holes to go under the partially installed (loosely) tapered bolts. Once all four are hooked, tight them up VERY tight! Recheck tightness frequently.

Mine has the drawbar installed on it with a 42" single blade mower of some kind----I never use it.

Hi,
The IH drawbar uses tapered head bolts to hold it on the final drives.
Below is a listing at TM Tractor for the bolts, you can look at the pics. :)
