Just some of the more obvious stuff. The tandem disk would work, as would any of several rotary mowers, and the fertilizer side dresser. I doubt the Howard tiller would be too helpful as you wouldn't be able to work close enough to the rows. Likewise, the post hole digger probably couldn't be swung over into the row.

From my experience, the A and Super A were used a lot more commonly in vineyards. Special vineyard equipment for the Super A, that wouldn't fit a Cub were commonplace, such as grape hoes and side mounted post pounders. I have a manual control grape hoe that was probably made for an A but I have put it on a Cub. It come pretty close to the rear tire. If the hoe used the Super A Touch Control, I wouldn't have been able to do it.

Herbicide rigs were largely shop built and I suppose one could be built for a Cub but it would not be able to carry as much material. Most insect and fungus treatment was done with trailer mounted spray units. These typically were PTO driven and 200 or more gallon capacity. Either of those points knock it out of the Cub range. As with herbicide treatment, something could be shop built but I have never seen it.

Mowers are still available new from Woods Corp. (http://www.woodsonline.com) and you can find used ones listed in the classified ads both online and in your local papers. Or I believe a good used one could be found at J.P. Tractor Salvage. Or on e-bay.

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