Shield for PTO Belt Pulley

Postby MisterTea » Tue Sep 07, 2021 4:19 pm

Hello all,

I'm a new (and very happy!) Farmall Cub owner. I recently got a '50 Cub with a 5' belly mower that I plan on mowing a larger yard with. I'm trying to find a guard or something to put above the belt pulley that is on the PTO. I'm worried that if the belt breaks, it could whip around and hit the driver. I found two bolts that look like they may allow the mounting of a shield like that (see photo). Am I correct in this thinking? I'm having a hard time finding a shield for sale that looks like it would fit and only found the one on this page that looks like it may fit: See MO-329 on this page https://www.defarmallcubs.com/MOWER.html . However, that says it's only a bracket for a shield.

Was there ever a shield made for this purpose? Are those two bolts to mount a shield?

Thank you!

Michael

You are correct. Those two bolts could be used to mount a pulley shield. The shield can easily be made from a piece of medium sheet metal, bent to form an “L” shape in the flat plane. Dimensions could be ascertained by making a few measurements. Maybe someone can post a photo of theirs. The one you linked to is unsuitable.

Possibly still available from a Woods dealer (assuming it is a Woods mower). Might tend to be a tad on the high dollar side.

Hi,
The Cub looks good in your picture. :)

Below is a page from a Woods Rotary Mower owner's manual showing the rear shield for that model of mower. The shields are different for different models of mowers.

http://farmallcub.com/rudi_cub/www.clea ... age-08.jpg

Some of the mowers use the 2 bolts at the top rear of the transmission housing to hold an attaching part for the rear shield.

If you post pictures of your mower, we can probably tell you what it is. Or there might be an identification plate or sticker somewhere on it with the brand and model number.
Sometimes the sticker is on the rear shield, which you don't have.
If you knew the make and model of the mower, you might be able to buy the shield, and it's attaching parts somewhere.

Below is a Woods owner's manual, you can look through it.
The parts pic with the shield is on page 13, the parts list is on page 12.
You need to know what mower you have before buying anything. :)

Thank you all for your help! I'm not sure who made the mower. I can't find any tags on it. It could be homemade I guess. It's very sturdy. Here are some photos of it. Don't mind the oil. It started leaking shortly after I bought it. :? Hopefully not a lemon.

This might be it.

There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Ohh, that looks like the one! Thanks, Barnyard! Do you know what model of mower that is? Or have a part number for the shield?

Thanks, Dale Finch and tst! With your help, I've tracked down the part number of that shield to be: IH-474170-R91. I haven't had any luck finding one for sale. I'll keep my eyes open or look into having one fabricated.

I'd suggest placing a Want Ad in the Vine asking if anyone has an extra shield they'd be willing to part with.

Welcome to the forum. I'd also encourage you to post a new thread over in the Introduce Yourself sub-forum and tell us a little about yourself and how you acquired your Cub. We can all give you a proper greeting over there. BTW, I was born in Quincy, IL at Blessing Hospital. :{_}:

Thank you for the forum help, Stanton! I'll do that now.

Wow, it's a small world! I grew up around here, moved away for a number of years, and recently moved back to be closer to family.
