Hey Val you didn’t plow any snow yet either did you?


Mike: Are you still mowing grass?
hello all from the somewhat chilly south ( 40* this morning, high today in the 70's , couple days ago in the 80's ) . not sure about mike , he's "way up there" in north louisiana . looks like my last cut of grass was about 3 weeks ago . winter gives me time to do a lot of the maintenance ( 5 cubs at this time ) without being in the " summer steam bath season " . coppersmythe.....................PS: setting aside january to try and finish the '48 high and wide , counting on y'all for some much needed advice . Bill , PERFECT picture!!


I quit mowing about 1 November but it still needed to be cut.

Snow??? Here I'm looking at cutting my clover as its still growing in my fields. My peas, onion, garlic, turnips, mustard n rutabagas are also growing well too. 90% of the time I'm wearing short sleeves on Christs-mass day. Here is a funny video on how we look at snow way south of masson-dixe line....

Bill that is a nice pic!
In fact, that’s Christmas card worthy!
On a side note I followed up on another plow/grader set up. It had been on CL and though it was pretty cheap (like me ;) ) I was doing my best to resist.
Then yesterday I look on Facebook marketplace and it’s there too only with a price drop. I’ve said it before, if you dangle the right part in front of me, at a cheap enough price, I’ll bite. So I took the drive today and upon arriving I ask Bill if he’s heard of farmallcub.com. He says yes he’s “Drifting “!
Small world huh? :)
Despite the sub-arctic temps we had a nice visit.
Gotta tell ya, his Cub looks as nice or better in person. Yes Bill you did a nice job on that. You should be proud.
Back on the snow, I’m on the Jersey Shore, 8 miles from the ocean so we only got a dusting.
Bill on the other hand , well he has a proper Currier and Ives scene at his place. Very pretty up there.

Thanks for the compliments, it was great to meet you, wish weather was little nicer and had a little more time to talk, could have educated me some more on these cubs... I still have a lot to learn, really hope one day to make it to one of these cubfests and meet up with you again and hopefully some more of the members here in person. One day when I'm down that way, would love to stop by see your cubs if your available

Educate you on Cubs? :roll: Well you’ve got to take that with a grain of salt. I know enough to get us both into trouble. :lol: I have a lot to learn too. ;) Besides, don’t sell yourself short. You’ve got a fine looking tractor and the work I saw that you did, well I know more than a few tractor owners who couldn’t do that or be brave enough to try.
When you get the chance you’ve got to hit the Cubfests, the Bash or Cecil’s NEfest is right north of you if your still in Jersey next fall.
The guys at those events are the ones you’ll gain knowledge from. ;)
Oh and yes if you ever get down my way your more than welcome to drop by.

Reading through these posts it seems like every area of the country has it's on and off season . We got about 7" of snow on Dec. 3rd for our first snow of the year . I do 3 driveways and the cub did just fine with chains and wheel weights but I need to repair or replace my chains ( heavy wear on all of the crosslinks ) .

Often I've seen chains that are very worn on one side. The tire side does not show any wear. Flipping the chains over (in this case) will get several more years of wear before needing replacement. This may not be your case.

Just check to make sure that the cut ends of the chain are not going to dig into the sidewall and eventually cause a puncture. I have seen this happen on passenger tires, but not specifically on tractor tires.

Thanks for the tip of flipping the chains Stanton but unfortunately mine are worn so thin it wouldn't help . I have used a temporary measure of replacing the broken crosslink links with a small shackle . Question , I can buy precut 3/8 x 11" crosslinks from the local marine store very cheap ( about $2.50 per 11" section ) compared to buying crosslinks online at $10.20 per section BUT they are not twisted links . They are hardened steel welded links but I don't know how hard . Would this do the job ? I could do one whole rear tire with 11 total crosslink chains for about $30.00 compared to $115.00 . Yes , I am on a budget ........

How about putting a couple of twists in the crosslink before fastening the second end?

That might work better. It would probably require slightly longer cross chains to maintain the same fit.
