Why insomnia and craigs list are bad. AKA my new cub.

Sun Jan 03, 2010 1:11 pm

Well as the title goes, sleepless 1 night, I was on tempest search, searching craigs list for stuff, and accidentally put the search radius bigger than I normally do. Well, I hit uppon this gem in north west Georgia. I guess all the partying from New years dulled the GA boys cub radar. Because I managed to snag him.

As far as I can tell he is a factory original steep slope mower from IH. Just like the one in the link on TM website.
http://www.tm-tractor.com/gbrochures/mo ... bloboy.htm

The owner said he was originally ordered for a church in GA, to mow the hill/mountain sides on the property, he was fitted with a woods 59 deck instead of the mott flail, but everything else looks just like the add.

OK to give you a sense of the size, my trailer has a 84" deck, the tractor is 83-1/2" wide. The side wall bulge on the tired is actually wider than the deck, but we managed to barely get him on.

Well because of the history of the tractor working at the church, and the size, I've chosen a name thats semi approprate, but may be a bad omen. My wife thinks so..

I present to you GOLIATH.

Later

What is interesting about the tractor is the 2500 rpm maximum engine speed. Plus 9 speeds from 1mph all the way to 10.1 mph. Wow.

Wow, glad to see the cub went to a forum member. I've had my eye on it for some time. It started out at $2500 a couple months or so ago.

I was actually expecting Corky or some other local enthusiast would grab it for a Cub Tug entrant.

Nice find :!: With those specs all you need is a good tune-up, a few Tug modifications, and a run on Rick's dyno and I'm sure we'd be seeing that Golden Shaft returning to the Good Ole Deep South again :{_}: If you noticed no Northner mentioned the Tug only the Southern guys, what's that tell you :mrgreen: You got a real gem there Hank :!:
