Your Cub Cadet is a DaeDong CUT, correct? Equiv to Kioti DK35, first gen?
Anyway, those B-series Kubotas are much lighter duty tractors. I would do a custom subframe that wrapped around the rear axle housings, and avoid using the 3-pt lift arm pivots. You can also mount the hoe much closer to the tractor than what the Woods subframe allows.
DK35Vince said what everything I have run across. The Mitzi platform not Daedong.
So, you wouldn't recommend using this setup a a starting point to modify for the Cub?
I don't have a "shop" or even garage yet to use as a building site. So that's why I asked specifically about going at this from a Mcgyver POV and modifying it.
I will admit to not liking the fact they designed it to mount to the 3 point lower bolt spots on those smaller Kubota models.
I just don't have a functional work bench - driveway only. And very little of it currently too.
Yes I have a metal chop saw, MIG & Stock welder units. Even have oxy-Ac.however I am quite rusty and without a realistic bench & vice I'm hesitant to go full Monty and start from scratch?
I may just stay 3-point till I finally get a shop built.... Later this year or next?
Night night y'all. Tha ks for the fast replies.
