Cub Low Boy rear hydraulics

Postby pafau29 » Mon Oct 19, 2020 4:07 pm


I recently purchased a 1970 cub low boy and I just got her running great. This is my first tractor ever so I don’t know much. The front has a blade on it and it moves up and down great. I can’t get the rear to move. It acts like it will move but can’t. I see references to a lockout bar or some type of bolt but I don’t know where to look for these things. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is such a cool little tractor!

I guess you mean it is a 154 LoBoy.

The LoBoy operator's manual can help you learn about maintenance that the LoBoy needs.

Below is the 154 LoBoy operator's manual. The experts on here recommend people read it. It has lots of info about operation, maintenance, and lubrication.
There is a table of contents on page 1, and an index beginning on page 58.
It shows how LoBoys originally looked in it. The lube section begins on page 46.
There is hydraulic info beginning on page 11. ... index.html

I would check or change all the oils before using the LoBoy. Using it with low oil in a gear housing can damage the parts in the housing.
There are 3 separate gear housings, with 3 separate oil levels to check, in the rear area of a LoBoy, the transmission, and 2 final drives. :)

You may also have a diverter valve located on top of the panel between the operator's calves.

Open up and read the Operator's Manual in the link Glen provided.

Pictures of the rear of the tractor, operator's station, and left side of the tractor just infront of the foot rest.
I have an excuse. CRS.
