Thanks for the nice comements. I've been a cub cadet crazy for many years and its nice to talk to you all...I'll post some more pics soon.a few yeas ago I built 2 auxilary mowers. cub 85 rider/chopped off the front-end/mounted 42"deck.pull one on each side of 1450/cuts 10foot 6 inches at a time. I'll post a pic if thats ok..
Hey Darryl, do the drive shaft directions of the hydros spin in the same directioin(clockwise looking at the diff from the drive shaft input) or did you have change the direction of one of the hydros? Did you need to flip the ring gear in the front diff? Sweet tractor, does it pull well? Are there any sycronization probs?
Here's a link to a video I took of Darryl's articulated. I asked him how it handles uneven ground so he drove it up onto a rock, only rock we could find close by, to show me and a few other guys how the articulation worked. I think Darryl was afraid he might run over Vince Thomley's leg, I however think that might have been an even better demonstration.
