How come Cubs cost more than they're big brothers? Well, at least in my area in the classifieds. I've found at least 2 or 3 H's for under $2000. The Cubs are expensive around here. Also found an M for $1800. Whats the Farmall BN tractor?

Kid - cubs hold a high value because of their utility. They are very handy small tractors. You can mow, use them in a small garden, move snow etc. They are the right size for people with a few acres of ground or just a large lawn. An H or M is a great tractor but they are too big for many small chores.
A BN is a narrow version of a B. It is about 8" narrower.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Another advantage a Cub has is that it's a lot easier to transport than the larger tractors--usually can be hauled behind a pickup. Makes for greater demand by those who don't own the "big rig"
