New....FARMALL CUB/CUB Lo-Boy Book

Postby Bermuda Ken » Mon Dec 10, 2018 4:55 pm

I am working on a new book covering the Farmall Cub and Cub Lo-Boy tractors that will be out in 2019. I'm looking for any input for topics to be included in the book. It has been suggested to include a list of the implements IH offered for these tractors. Some technical data like wiring diagrams and paint color/decals used have been suggested too!

If you have an item that you would like to see included, post a reply. I can't guarantee it will be included, however, you never know what may happen......

It's nice to know you're still around and still have interest.
I'm not sure what else could be covered unless you have some info never seen.

Good to see you posting, Ken. You may already be thinking along these lines, but take the book to the final end of production in 1979.

And photos and description of implements, home made or adapted for the tractors.

And unusual uses for the tractors.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Most books cover the life and uses for when these were originally built and that makes sense.
Perhaps the following they have and use they see now which has outlasted most other things from that era could be better covered, including cubfests, tugs, forums and the bridge of common ground that connects people from across the country and around the world. We all have dramatically different politics and opinions but on these we all get along like family.
Cool isn’t it?

Maybe a short story about CubFests. After all, these events help promote Cubs and the people who continue to keep them alive and well.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

I would think including a section on the different implements sold for the cub like mentioned above would be a great part of the book. May be a section on what to look for when purchasing a cub for the first time would be a helpful section for new cub enthusiasts also.

For me the fascination is the quality. Even the low end products like Cub or Cub Cadet were well built and made to last.
They had factories everywhere made in the USA. Maybe the sad demise.

I believe the expected life span was 10
years. Not many things have gone beyond expectations like these have.

A couple of things...........(1) Maybe something about how popular Cubs still are to this day for home gardeners, hobbyists, and commercial organic farms due to their unique offset design - something that isn't offered today.
(2) Maybe a writeup about some of the common "problems" someone would face when purchasing/owning one of these tractors and what to look for when buying. Maybe even how to repair or avoid the common problems/trouble areas.

I’d love to see how to set up Implements along with some popular modification how to’s. Like maybe adding an auxiliary hydraulic system. Or such.

Implements and what parts are required to mount them. Other brands that made implements. Differences from year to year with the tractors. Prices of tractors and accessories.

As you stated, IH implements for the Cub generate a lot of interest. There was a lot of aftermarket implements available for the Cub as well that are interesting as well.
