Yes, off topic, but I thought maybe I could find some help from you good folks here anyway. Anybody here know of anybody in the four corners area of IA, MN, IL, WI who has morphed a couple of Cub Cadets, preferably with Cub gear transmission, into an articulated four-wheel-drive? I'd sure like to see how they approached it.

Closest thing I'm aware of was on FarmallCub.com a few years ago.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

That isn't entirely accurate about the case as I have one. Going downhill is a problem if you do not use the drive line retard on the speed control lever. The newer ones have a special valve built in that controls it better and isn't an issue. There is nothing wrong with using the cub cadet ones either. For the right person they are definitely doable.

This one was made by a man & his son in Central Pa. The pic is from 2001 at a show.

I recently read an article about the building of one somewhere. It was pretty detailed. Unfortunately I can't remember exactly where.

It was built with hydro transmissions.

I started one a few years back and gave up-got in a little over my head. Eye balling and guessing and not wanting to spend any money just don't work for something like that. I would recommend using the transmission and drive train from the case/Ingersoll garden tractors. Hydraulic drive=no driveshaft not deal with between the transmissions-which is the hardest part of a build with cubcadet parts.

I disagree. The Case/Ingersol hydraulic drive is a sort of a version of the "Billy Mays Death Machine" due to lack of control going downhill.

Nothing wrong with figuring out how to do it right with the HD IH rear ends and Sundstrand hydros.

Go on the Garden Tractor page and ask the same question. You will get a whole bunch of replys on how to! Been covered there many times.

What garden tractor page would you recommend? I don't see one here on YT.

There's been a number of articles on those conversions in Farm Show Magazine.

Not sure what it costs to get access to their archives, but it might be worth it.
