Rear Lift Info Needed

Recommended Posts


I recently got one of the newer Soverigns with the Kohler Command engines and want to add a rear lift. Can I use the "hickie" from a B-Series tractor, (the socket thing) and what cable should I purchase?

Do you plan on using a moldboard plow on this setup or not. If you do the B series rear lift tube does not have the need hole in it like the correct rearlift tube does. You will still need to buy the larger bushing that fits into the larger hole in the upright support that it is installed in. That is $30 bucks. You can use either the cable for the 7000 series that is $75 or make your own or the correct cable with the adjuster that is around $74 for both.

I would put a ad in the classifieds. I got the whole package in the spring from another member for $60 dollars.

There was or is a rear lift tube on ebay for $29.00 the other day. That is cheap for the correct part. It sells for over a $100 new.

Hello , On the main website, Under DIY there is a drawing of how to build a rear lift. I made my own cable with a garage door opener cable. I think it is 42 inches center to center.
