As some of you saw, i bought a cub 1200 with 530-550 hours on her and she runs great! it didn't feel right not to have some sort of attachment for her so i built one.
I bought a yard cart a while back from an estate sale. It was home built out of 1" steel tubing and other odds and ends. The axle and frame where very strong, but it sat outside and the wood was so rotted, i could poke my finger through it.
I decided to redo all the wood, except instead of plywood for sides i did full wood sides. I used pressure treated 1x4's and 1x6's as well as some 2x4's for the floor frame. I used screws for treated wood as well as carriage bolts.
i still need to make gate for back and put the rear trim piece on the bottom edge
it cost around 150 for materials and about 12 hours of work. I think it was worth it!
The cub needs the clutch rebuilt, its smooth but when i disengage it, the center disk rattles and shakes around. and the clutch pad on the engine side is all chipped up. other than that it runs and mows great!
It needs headlights, taillights, hookup for lights on trailer (just reds on back and oranges on side), wheel weights, and the play taken out of steering.
Any suggestions for trailer and 1200?
...I also think the first picture is better lookin than some women out there
