Be careful, with the tags showing on the back of that camper Bigdog may show up with some money and his trailer before you deside.



Thanks for the tip. I have blurred out the numbers :)

:P From the looks of it I would think it has $600 worth to be a parts tractor if nothing else. The block crack is very common on Cubs, My block has gobs of weld in the same area. I would offer him $400 green cash in hand & hope he will settle on $500 if not $400. :twisted:

I agree with john. The Cub is worth that in parts, but I don't think its the Cub you want if you want a slick restoration. You will wind up spending more money to restore this one than to buy a more original Cub that need less work. But if you are looking for a challenge :roll:

Welcome to farmall cub forum. Its a good place.

CW:

Well, in my opinion it is still well worth the 600. Ifn you can get it for 400 that would be much much better.

If you look at the sorry excuse for a Cub my Jethro is,

the one you are looking at is in much better shape and has a Woods deck to boot!

What are you waiting for. Ifn I was close to that cub, BigDog wouldn't have a chance at it. I like CHALLENGES, and this one looks like it is fun.

Jethro is missing a lot of parts, the engine is stuck, the governor is stuck, no front tires or rims, no grill, hood is toast, doglegs are toast and that is just what I can see!

I think you are getting a good deal. That Woods must be worth 200 or 300 bucks anyways, so you are still ahead.... go for it before someone else grabs it.

I've spent more on a single implement (rotovator), then you are talking for the whole tractor with a mower. If youre not interested, let us know where it is.

Well CW! There's no way that cub is worth $600. You'd better just forget about it and let someone else worry about it. :wink: :wink: :wink:

No need to blur the license plate. The Universal Cub Locator Satellite has homed in on the general location of the cub. :) :)

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

If you don't take it, I'll drive over a grab it! The mower alone is worth the price!

It does not look to bad all it needs or takes is lots of TLC.
As for price if you deceied not to restore you could take it a part &
sell the parts for 2 or 3 times what you paid for it.
If it's been broken I did it.
If its not broken wait till I touch it.

:D :shock: Go fo it C.W. the mower deck is worth it alone. I paid $500 and a horse for mine. you can put an 12v battery on it to try to start it. Altough I had to sand the starter contact and the points and disconnect the generator. If you would like a hand with what little I know I have not went back to work yet and have lots of free time. 8) 8) wildbill@tc3net.com :{_}:
