Hi everyone, I am new to the site and love it already! I recently purchased my first hydro cub cadet and I have a few ideas in mind for some homemade implements and I was wondering if anyone knew the lift capacity of the hydraulic system. I look forward to the input.

Welcome to the GTT forum.
I don't have the answer to you question either, but I'm sure someone will come along soon that will have the answer. A lot of knowledge is sitting in wait here!

Welcome to GTTalk. Glad you like it here. CC may not have published a weight capacity for the lift. If you have a look at the attachments that CC and third party companies made for use with the lift that will give you a good idea of the capacity. The lift capacity is usually limited by the designers to a safe amount for the size of the tractor.

It will probably lift way more than the tractor can safely lift. But I would say 300 lbs is about right for most attachments.

It's been my experience that they will lift enough so that the front end gets too light for good steering. I used the hydraulic system on my CC dumpster and that will lift over 400 lbs. before the bypass opens. Anything over that would be seriously taxing a tractor this size.

Thanks for all the good from everyone! My main goal is to fabricate a 3point hitch on the back so i can use all of my Sears Suburban Brinly implements on the 149. It will probably be more of a winter project since it is still too hot in a non a/c workshop...this virginia humidity can be miserable!

It has been my experience that the hydro will lift more than you can with the manual lift. I put the 149 hydro and lift on my 129 and I love it. Works fast and has a bunch of power.

My 149 has 225lbs of weight on my extended Sleave hitch pin and the plow up front on and it had no problem lifting both at the same time.I'm in the process of gathering materials for a 3 point build up that will be adapted to my exsisting Sleave hitch.

But 1st I have to change a leaking Cork pump seal and driveshaft flex disk.
