Hi I am looking at farmall cub possibly to mow a 3 acre yard with.The power rating on these tractors doesn't seem that great do they do a decent job running a 5 foot belly mower?The tractor IM looking at also has a snow blade wondering if it would enough weight and power to move snow?Thanks Justin
Well, I'd venture to say that most folks on the board are gonna say that you've picked the right tractor. I'd have to agree. The cub is ideal for mowing 3 acres or even more. And certainly will move a lot more snow than you would think. Horsepower ain't everything. The torque and gearing on the cub wil allow it to work circles around most of these new-fangled lawn and garden tractors rated at 2 or 3 time the cub's horsepower rating.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!
Take a look at this thread: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=4437
I can attest to the workability of these tractors. The pictures in the above thread show my 55 after I move from near Lake Tahoe where the Cub never mowed, just pushed snow, and lots of it. And so much fun too
Welcome to this greatest Cub Forum.
Are you sure you are not a Spy/Mole for them green machines gathering our stealth info on Cubs?
Just checking cause having a handle such as (JD) and agent number (44691) kinda caught My suspicious eyes.

Welcome to the board, and a hopefull welcome to a possible new cubber.
I think you need to read this thread I need recommendations on wich tractors will meet my needs..
Also here is a my thoughts:
Ellie and now Granny both handle all my chores around the house from hauling stuff, to yarding wood and in Ellie's case ALL of the gardening chores. This year she is going to get to play with my new disc harrow, spring harrow and potato digger! Hopefully I will get my spray wagon and water wagon done for the girls to haul.
Yup, a Cub is pretty good little tractor!
I have a '49 with a Danco c3 "60 cut, I use it on a 2.5 acre lawn ,I can tell you I would'nt replace it ,my neighbors always comment on how it resembles a golf course when I'm finished! as for snow plowing ,I have'nt tried it ,back to mowing, I just rebuilt the deck , and the tractor ,you can buy most anything from a Case dealer. Good Luck, Hope I helped

Welcome to the Cub Mecca.
I have a '49 Cub with a Touch Control Hydraulic unit. I love this little tractor! It is compact, tough, and a real looker.
I used it last year to keep my 300' driveway clear, and I was very pleased with it's ability, it outworks alot of $8000.00 4wheelers from my view. You do require chains, and wheel weights help greatly. I don't have a mower but certainly would like to try that some day. Right now I'm using mine to do some landscaping. I've got the blade out on the front and I'm "picking" away at a big load of fill. Once I knock down the mountain, I will mid mount the blade again and start grading. We're not talking a Hough loader here but it sure beats the heck out of a shovel. The other thing I have been using it for is grading the driveway in the summer. I am very impressed at how much gravel piles up on the blade and it just keeps pushing. My driveway has never been flatter.
You will get hooked on the Cub, I'm re-doing a my second one right now, and am looking at a third. Some call me crazy, but as the years pass they are starting to call me "Tractor Guy". I like that.
Just Do It !
