Thanks for the pics, got a pair of nice looking Cubs there. One thing I have noticed on all the pics of 108's is most have the wider front tires. Mine has the 4.80/4.00 X 8's. Just seems odd, but I like the looks of the narrower tires on the front.

dsmithjr I am curious as well. I just picked up a 1572 with the factory 3 pt on the rear and it has no chains or top link. By the way really sweet super you have.

Those are the front tires that it came with. I plan on upgrading to the tri rib style tire but I will probably stay with a wider width to give me a little more surface area. I like the tractor look with the narrows on front but they really cut into the grass around the yard.

Any standard cat 0 top link will work with the hitch and you can get them several places. I am sure I can guess and cut my chain but I was always taught to measure twice and cut once. So far I have posted the chain length question on two different forums with no responses with measurements.

Cut it a couple links long and use one of those screw together links till you get it to the right length. I think 3-points on Cubs are far and few between.

KennyP, I think any make cat 0 3pt chain length would work. I can do the whole measure and adjust thing but the way my hitch is set up one side of the chain is fixed and they other goes over a hook so I thought if I could find somebody with a similar set up I could get a measurement. I see a lot of Cub SGTs with 3pts but I dont know how many use the chains. I may just cut the chain long enough to give me full spread on the lower arms then I can always adjust in if needed. I will say I appreciate all the responses here, on the other forums Ive got none so far.

The main thing is that the implement can swing side to side some, just not into the tires.

Nice looking Cubs! I used to have a 108 myself. I like the 3 point on the super, did you paint it up, or did it come like that?
