Default NF front axle flip

I’ve seen a few pictures of cubs with the front axle flipped upside down for pulling and it’s got me thinking, if I were to flip the axle on my 106 would I be able to fit larger tires on the front and Be close to the normal ride height? I picked up some 25x8x12 and 25x10x12 (I think) tires and 4 lug Honda wheels today on a trade. The tractor is mainly used for snow plowing in the winter but it’s really just something to tinker with in my free time. It has A 16hp Kohler and rebuilt clutch with a red spring from MWSC.

I don't think so. The geometry would be all wrong.

I just figured I could lower it the same way the pullers do and lift it back up with the big tires. I’ll just have to measure it and figure it out. Or has anyone ever made a costume axle from square tube and weld on spindles at desired height?

You can't flip the axle upside down, the axle won't fit in the tractor upside down with out heavy modification. Pullers use straight axles to lower the front.

It would be easier to fabricate custom spindle/kingpin assemblies with a raised spindle in the location you desire.
Hubs to accommodate rims that bolt on will require different spindles anyways.

This is pretty much the answer I was looking for, thank you!

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.
