    Parts Wanted Wanted a Cub 1440 front grill

    One big problem is this: I went to the website and plugged in my Cadet model number and that came up as nothing found. Went to Ser # and same thing. Searching for the cub 1440 proved fruitless also. If I get a chance today I will give them a call. Have run into this before and for some reason...

    Help needed on removing the QA42a from my 1440.

    Parts Wanted Wanted a Cub 1440 front grill

    Taking snowblower off I removed the side panels and discovered both frame mounts for the grill were totally broken off. So - I thought I would search for replacement and found the price was really stiff. Brings up question of: Does anyone know of anyone that has this particular grill or...

    Help needed on removing the QA42a from my 1440.

    Thank you all for input and suggestions. I managed to force the unit back and once I did that the spring loaded lever moves. Long story short - I had to recruit help to manage to pry the blower forward from each side and finally it came loose. It almost seemed to be sprung tightly inward - it...

    Help needed on removing the QA42a from my 1440.

    I found a small bar running from one side to the other - has a small spring on it however it refuses to move. Possibly my actions of trying to force the assembly to move may have jammed it -- will try to push it back a bit and try the bar again. Thank you

    Help needed on removing the QA42a from my 1440.

    Bought the tractor so for the purpose to easing my snow removal as I have a very long driveway. Just had my 4th open heart / valve replacement and things are sometimes hard for me to do. I have the QA42a blower and I found the 451 two stage. Had a helper today and wanted to remove the QA42 -...

    Parts Wanted Looking far and wide for 190-449 - the kit I need to mount my 451 snowblower.

    Conflict - I had a seasoned cub man state that the actual kit I need is the 190-528-100 because it fits my machine. My cub is a 1992 MFG date, model 1440 and I really want the correct kit before I start trying to mount the snowblower sometime this summer. I really do not have a cub dealer very...

    Which snowblower for 1440

    I was unable to locate a GT salvage yard close to me. I finally did locate a nice used 451 two stage blower - now trying to locate the installation kit 190-449 - and the only other question I have unanswered at this time is this: Does this blower buckle right up to the power takeoff on my...

    Which snowblower for 1440

    I believe that in my part of the county - these machines are rather hard to locate in any condition. However long it takes --- I do plan on locating that 451 whether used or new and installing it. Of course - that is just me

    Which snowblower for 1440

    No - not a real problem. Just long term since I will be renewing "A" snowblower I desire a 2 stage rather then a single one.... Just me is all

    Which snowblower for 1440

    Agree - after looking at things closer. So - is there anyone reading this that knows of a 451 for sale. Must be close to NE Iowa.

    Which snowblower for 1440

    Thank you tons for this information. I have looked at this model - however I am hoping to take thing a little further -- being 80 it is hard to work somethings and I was hoping to find a lighter weight 2 stage that would be adaptable to the 1440. Am I wasting my time - I know I can install...

    Which snowblower for 1440

    Since obtaining my 1440 I believe I would like to change out the snowblower attachment. Little confusing and since I do not have close access to a dealer - thought I would toss out the question of "which snowblower attachment would you be considering" for replacement of my single stage old...

    1440 plastic hood and sides

    Thank you all - I was wondering if the plastic was molded with the color in it which would allow for this type of refinishing. I found decals for mine (as my decals are peeling off) so this summer I can easily do that sanding. Yesterday - ran into another problem. Previous owner told me he had...

    1440 plastic hood and sides

    Just acquired the 1992 model and the entire plastic hood assembly is badly faded. Anyone know the best way to restore, repaint or refinish these panels. Or I would consider fresh metal replacements. Thoughts?

    Hello from West Union, Iowa - as a long time fan of the Cub Cadet tractors I leaned toward one for my needs in old age

    Turning old is not always a wonderful experience - as my walk-behind blower is a struggle for me to handle now. So - i purchased a workhorse - a 1440 cadet with blower. It works good and has obviously been a workhorse for previous owner. While it does need a little TLC I believe it will make...
