Default Cub Crawler

I was wondering if anyone on here ever made a Cub Crawler? If so, how did you go about it, the drive system, and the tracks?

I sure miss Dan's art work at the show's (at least the ones I've been to), he does the best work I have ever seen. There are also other good looking projects out there too. .

Sorry, I had to add some color in there, but this person did a great job also. I have more cub dozer pic's but I cant find them. UGH !

Dan's is probably the nicest crawler you'll find that's come from a Cub Cadet, plus it seems (but I could be wrong) that it is also the one little machine that you'll find the most technical info floating around on the web; the link above being one of those sources.

You'll have to decide what you want out of the machine & what uses it will take part in. There are only a few ways to effectively steer a track machine though there many more overall designs of a track machine, such as a little Cletrac OC-3 or IH T-3/T-4 to the bigger Cats. Besides the steering, you've got different main frames, transmissions, track frame designs, different track pads/grousers.

There's a gentleman who built a little McCormick T-20 replica for his grandson using a 16 hp Briggs and a Peerless hydrostatic drive, disc brakes to steer and track pads with no grousers or traction design on the pads themselves so it can be driven on the lawn with no damage.

Search away my friend and find a template you like and go from there. Kinda like the guys building the 4x4 articulating machines do in regards to proportions & the main articulation joint.

I almost forgot, there was a kit produced back in the late 60's that bolted up to your cub and works pretty decent.

well let me take a stab at this because it has peaked my interest. Terra trac which was bought out by case and small cletracs used a Clarck trans axle it was an open dif with band brakes on both sides of the diff. the way it works is you pull a lever to apply the brake and with open dif it lets the power got to the wheel that isn't braked. I think you could do the same with a cub cadet tranaxle with out board brakes you may have to modify them but it should work . you could use tracks off a bobcat mt55 or a ditch witch sk500 walk behind skid steer they arre the same pitch on the sprocket the ditch witch has a more agressive pattern than the bobcat and I use to put ditch witch tracks the bobcat for one of my customers . I would build my own track roller fram using ditch witch parts just for the meer fact there is a dealer just down the road from me if I remember right sprockets weren't bad idlers were alittle pricey and rollers were cheap that is my take what do you all think

How is he able to mount that 3 point with the PTO on that cub original? Are you able to do that??

EDIT: My bad, I thought that was a cub original with the scraper but it was a narrow frame

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.
