Love your build!! Looks great!

Did you put any reinforcement from the loader subframe to the rear end? The transaxle is only held on to the frame with 2 bolt in each side and it's the rear end that take the brunt of force on any uneven lifting in the bucket or side load from uneven ground. Without connecting the rear end to the subframe, a huge amount of stress goes on the frame area above the rear end. Just some food for thought.

Thanks Randy. I do have four more bolts attaching the rear plate to the frame but will eventually build a " torque tamer" from the bottom bolts on the axle tubes to the frame. I should have been more worried about the front axle though. There was some pretty deep grooves wore into it from flopping tiller belts over the many years and that was enough cause a failure.

Between fluid in the tires, factory wheel weights and the homemade plates there's 220 pounds, plus I can stack up to 310 pounds of suitcase weights.

Okay, that looks good. I have a loader on a WH and about twisted it in half till I built braces out to the rear end. It will eventually go on one of my 149's.

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.
