Default Custom exhaust

20190115_122044.jpg

My wife mentioned to me how she enjoys cutting the grass but doesn't like the exhaust smell from my old cubs.

So I started thinking if I could get the exhaust to exit out the back she might not mind it as much. So I got about 5' of 1-1/4 flex pipe an adapter to fit from the pipe into a Harley slip on muffler I had sitting around. Bolted the muffler up to the axle, took off the stock muffler and angled the pipe down slightly, slid and clamped the flex pipe over it, painted the flex pipe with high temp paint.

So here's how it came out, I've ran it three times so far pushing snow on my driveway. It quieted it down, now I only here the engine and drive shaft. No exhaust smell!

I found the flex pipe on Amazon
I bought a 25' roll, used 15' to vent the exhaust on my generator out of my garage, 5' for my 147 cc, and have 5' left to do the exhaust on my 149.

That’s not a bad idea, I have the muffler coming out as a stack on my loader tractor but may use your method instead, thanks

Looks very well done!! Just curious about clearance for a deck on the cub. I have to raise my deck all the way in order to load onto my trailer, so I was curious if you had enough clearance for a deck all the way up.

Cub cadet 123 sorry haven't replied to your question, I'm a self employed contractor and have been really busy lately, so haven't been on this fourm.
To answer your question, The flex pipe runs up under the foot rest and attaches to the muffler past the point of where the back of the deck would raise.
I haven't mounted the deck yet but from the measurements I took I dont be live it's going to be in the way of raising the deck.
Hopefully Il be mounting it soon so will update when I do.

No problem Jeff, I understand about a busy lifestyle all too well. I like what you have done and like the purpose it serves of quieting down the cub. Thanks for your response. I look forward to seeing your future pictures when you get your deck mounted on it.

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.
