Default Is this snow plow for a narrow frame?

Check out the craigslist link. I checked the measurements and I think the 10 3/4" will marry up with my narrow frame 126. Wanted to check before I go pick it up. If anyone knows, let me know.

As best as I can tell, that is a Sub Frame for a NF Cub.

The actual blade itself, is the same no matter what frame.

BTW, it would be a 42" or a 54" blade. IH never built a 48" model.

Well I went and got the blade. Now that I have it home you can see some better pics. I'm starting to think that the blade is not CC but I really have no idea. It is 48" wide. I hope it can be reassembled without modifications.

Does anyone have a good pic of an assembled plow so i can figure out how it goes together?

Well I got some together. Now how do I go about getting these two pieces together? Do I need to bend the arms out since the bar is welded?



Also, this blade does not have spots for the springs to attach. Why would that be?

Glad we got that cleared up... I've got one at my Brothers place that looks exactly the same and I didn't know what it fit for sure either, thanks Roland.

Now I guess the question is; Will that blade mount onto the subframe that he has?

Woops, I pulled the trigger a little late here... Sorry.

As Roland said, that blade is for a different style Cub, not sure that blade even goes with that sub-frame.

You are probably going to have to fabracate something to make it work right, or take it back and get a refund.

Before you get too carried away you should check to see if that sub-frame will mount on your tractor. Then worry about getting the rest of it hooked up.

The sub frame mounted up good

Now I still have to get the blade connected to the subframe some how. I see people selling the subframes alone. How do you make that connection, bend the subframe, seems like a bad design if that's the case.

Thanks

Glad it fit up well.

Yes, spread the sub-frame apart to get it on the pyramid, they really are pretty "springie".

Don't know exactly what to tell you about the springs, but you don't want to hit anything solid that is buried in the snow with the blade in the locked position like it is in the pic..

Now that I have the subframe on the tractor I'm trying to spread it to accept the pyramid. Funny thing I learned. A car jack will not work on it's side but it does a good job pissing the operator off.

Looks like I'll have to pull the subframe so I can use the car jack in the upright position to spread it.

I'll just drill some holes in the blade for the springs. It came with a new set of springs too.

I hope we get some snow in northern maryland from this storm so I can try it out .

I'll get some pics when I'm done.....thanks for the help!

This should give you an idea of where to put your springs, You will need the pin to adjust it from side to side.

Thanks junior, I'll drill them out tomorrow. I have the pin, just need to install it.

Here it is mounted up. That subframe was pretty springy Cub Cadet Head.

Nice job Squiner....

Looks like it will push a healthy amount of snow. I'm also curious about what RBedell posted about blades being the same NF/WF....the only difference is the sub frame?
Am i correct to assume the blade will fit both sub frames?
