Hi,

I have a 1572 Super cub.
I was taking the fuel tank off last weekend due to a clogged filter and noticed a splined shaft sticking out the back of the hydro pump.

Is this supposed to be used as a PTO to the rear? Is there a kit to extend it to the back?

Not that I want to use it, but always interested! (And there is 0% chance I will find the kit over here).

I am not sure, one of the guys with more knowledge on the super cubs will have to answer that one. I am curious to find out too.

I don't know a thing about Super Cubs, but I do know about PTO's and whatnot. If you could take some pics, I am sure it would help.

Lol doesn't it figure that you go to do one thing and that is the only thing you don't end up doing?

Yea, yea, forgot again.

Easy to get distracted! The funny thing is I keep walking past the Cub but just dont think about it.

You can kinda see the cutout in the fuel tank where it comes out

Sorry about the photos, just used my phone, and the tractor is a bit rammed in with other machines.

How far does that stick out of the trans-axle? It looks a little too short to attach a splined hub to. I don't know anything about the Cubs, I'm just making an observation. Another question, is there a groove around the circumference of the splined shaft near where it goes into the trans-axle? Anywhere that a set screw or a quick coupler might attach?

I think it may be for an Auxiliary Pump.
That shaft is Live when the engine is running.It runs the whole length of the hydro pump and connects directly to the driveshaft.

My 127 has a shaft similar to that sticking out of it.
The rear PTOs are the same ones (atleast with the narrow frame cub cadets) used on the old Farmall Cubs

That pump is used in many different tractors such as the cubs john deeres Ariens and so on. The stub you see on the back was for a rear pto that some makes had available.I am not sure if a rear pto was available for your model tractor.

Hello yes it is for a rear P.T.O. , as a few years ago the parts were still available from the dealer but it cost around $1100. back then. The Super garden tractors are great units I have had mine for 15 years with very few repairs. The [FONT="]hydraulic[/FONT] angle and lift dozzer blade is very nice to have. If you want the info I can scan and email the rear PTO section, let me know.

It would be good if you could.

Would be interested in some pictures of the blade too. Was thinking about making one for snow.
