I'll keep looking for a wide frame blade or blower on CL. The closest cub yard is a few hours away but I could drive the cub out there in my truck and buy a bolt on blade.

If I don't find something soon I'll get out my mig and mod the blade I already have. Since the mount is the right width I'm willing to try.

What part od MD are you in? My bro is in MD..... cub stuff is pretty easy to find out there....

A bolt on blade is not a WF blade. You really wouldn't even have to modify a WF blade. Blade angle is a little off because the cyclops front sits a bit higher, but its really not a big deal.

I thought he has an 1811? Spread frame...not a Cyclops...wide frame blade should fit without any modifications.

You have worked hard trying to correct several problems. The tractor has been sitting for some time and it looks like regular maintenance was neglected. You have cleaned the carb, replaced lines...why not remove the fuel tank and thoroughly clean it too? You will be surprised of how much debris will wash out.

Im sorry. I got your thread confused with another. Thought you had an 1863.... my bad.

No, you just need a WF blade. No adapting necessary. None at all. If you can't find one in the Annapolis area, you either are overlooking the obvious, or aren't looking.

There are three or four snow attachments on CL right now but all are NF. Is there some other place I should look?

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.
