Al, great pics! Now for a some questions: 1.Are those wheels an actual option or just a gimmick for the show? 2. On the 4x4 model is the rear axle/transmission casing cast iron? 3. I noticed in a brochure that the new legacy's were upgraded to category 1 three-points instead of category O. Since it has a 540 PTO does that mean you can hook a brush hog on it or is that too much load for the horsepower? Thanks. Chris

Hi, The front wheel drive is cast iron. As I remember the rear is aluminum. This is a Tuff Torque unit that is used in even larger Compact diesels. The mower is driven with a PTO in the front of the transaxle. The electric clutch is in the transaxle and runs submerged in oil. As I remember the hydraulic pump is about 4.5 gpm. The wheels are only for the show. Looked nice. The 3 point is called a modified cat 1. It will connect to cat 1 3 point attachments. The problem is that due to tire size etc, the arms are too short to lift as high as for example an 8n Ford would. John Deere also has the same 3 point setup and attachments are becoming available for it. e sold a new 4 wheel drive to the County last year for use at the court house. They got a loader and I went and bought a rear blade and to have it lift properly, we had to modify it. It works well now. I'll post some pics shortly on that. The loader is the slickest attachment for this tractor. t can be on while mowing, but comes off in less than 1 minute if you race the clock. NO PINS TO REMOVE. Just pull the handle on the latch back and raise the loader and it tips off forward and stands on its front frame. Jump off disconnect 4 hoses and drive off. To install drive up, connect the hoses and lower the loader and it tips into the front mount and then back to the rear anchors. Push the latch handle forward to lock the loader on and drive off. The 540 pto is the same as a 27 hp farm tractor. Midwest Super Cub sells polished aluminum wheels, ( like mags ) in wide widths for pulling tractors. They also have mags for the fronts. I believe they also sell chrome wheels. They also make 16 hp super blocks to replace Kohler K341 blocks for pullers. No fins, and can be bored way beyond 4 inches. They are also much thicker where the cylinder joins the crancase so you don't have to put tie straps on the head and pan with draw bolts to keep the cylinder from leaving the crankcase when you go past 60 hp in one of these. Many other pulling things like several different sets of transmission gears, so one can change low and second ratios. Hear rumors they are selling a 100 hp Kohler Command with a steel billet crank etc. $8000.00 +. Chad, I don't know if they would be available. If so they would come in the dealers point of purchase mdsing package. Haven't seen anything like that yet this year. Al Eden

Yes, Midwest sells polished aluminum wheels $100 each for rear. Al you forgot to add that the $8,295 price tag for the 100+ hp Kohler also requires you to trade in a complete core (engine). www.midwestsupercub.net

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
