Finished putting the 1450 back together and took a final video. Need to adjust the hood latch, LOL.

That is a sweet looking rig Frank!

Looks like you got the adjustment worked out for equal left and right on the cylinder?

The modified (chewed) handle adds a nice touch!

Thanks, Jay,

I do have a set of wheel weights to put on it, too. Just need to go get the bolts.

I figured out the easy way to get equal right and left tilt--stop tilting to the right when it's far enough!

It actually over travels to the right a bit. I measured the difference in travel at the blade ends and it's less than a couple inches, so it would only require a small adjustment. A half inch move in the rear pin would change the blade end to change by 2 or 3 inches. I'd have to cut that in half, a 1/4 inch move in the pin. So I figured it's not worth it at this point.

Lots of my workbenches, cabinets, tool boxes, anything less than 3 feet off the floor and not made of metal, have chew marks.

But all that chewing seems to fade away when the dogs are snuggling up to you and being affectionate. Wife says they will grow out of it. So there's hope.

This is not meant as criticism, and maybe its just the camera position, but it doesn't look like there's much lift on that blade. My 1641 lifts the bottom of the blade about 6" or so off the ground.

You are correct. I could put a shorter lift rod on it to increase the lift. Not sure it's needed, though.

Good Job. I have a dual 1450 and a 54 hydraulic blade. I believe that it has the factory cylinder mounting. For what it's worth it rotates further to the right than to the left. I have never really tried to diagnose it just though it was a little peculiar that it was that way. Now the rear mount was welded to the frame when I got t , but I believe the mounting bolts are in place.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
