Loader Build Help

Here's where you can post your Cub Cadet based specials. Actually, if it's cool and not Cub based, post it anyway!

Loader Build Help

Postby Merk » Mon Dec 26, 2016 5:54 pm

I have a Kwik Way loader that is missing the framework between the tractor and the loader.
The loader is going on my IH Cub Cadet 149.
Can someone post some pictures of their framework and hydraulic pump mount?

It may not be exactly what you need but AW has the subframe from my Johnson.

Dale - Click on my user name, then look in my "Gallery/picture album" I have a few in there. Obviously mine is for an SGT, but I would think you could just size it for the 149.

You definitely want the loader as reasonably close to the grille as possible, that weight just keeps getting worse on the front axle as you push it forward. Keep this thread going, it will be neat to watch you move forward with it.

Tom,
Thanks for link to your loader pictures. I like the stands holding the loader up when not in use.
I'm still in the research stage with my loader project. I want some bracing from the loader framework to the rear axle and to the center of the tractor frame. I may get carried away with the support on the loader frame.....rather have too much than not enough.
I'm planning to post more pictures of my loader build as I get into it.

Big Mike
I see a road trip to AW's in the future with my camera and tape measure in hand.

I'm still in a design phase.
I started a loader build topic on 4 different sites and received some great information. Someone sent an email that had a Kwik-Way loader install instructions to mount the same loader on a Wide Frame IH Cub Cadet. After down loading the instruction I realized I had a copy. Someone posted pictures of the Kwik-Way to wide frame framework that I need to build. I found several loader builds on different tractor sites that were a great help. I had the loader plans from pf engineering. I thought I could modify pf engineering loader framework plans to work with the Kwik Way loader I have. I like how the Kwik Way frame work connects to the tractor over the pf engineering plans.

The tractor I want to install loader on is my 149. The 149 is used for snow removal in the winter.
