Adapted Cubs...

Sun Oct 16, 2011 3:31 pm

Most of have seen plenty of photos of the French "Vineyard Cub" and French "Super Cub", the "Modified Lowboys" used as trains to pull carts, and George Willer's "Mini-B Cub" and "Rat Cub", but does anyone have any pics of Cubs that were customized for specialty uses, like this one made for de-tasseling corn (Photo courtesy of Wisconsin Historical Society):
I believe that there may have been a few at Red Power over the years, just wondering if anyone has any pics. Thanks!!

Hmmm, so no photos. Has anyone ever seen any one of these high modifications at a show? Original or good reproduction?

Here are a couple of odd ones from RPRU in PA. Forklift is serial number 501.

There is a modified Yellow & White Cub in East Windsor, CT used by a nursery to spray the bushes. The few times that I've seen it I have not had a camera. It sits 24"-30" higher than normal.
One time they had what looked like a 5' Woods Belly Mower mounted and they were trimming the tops off the bushes.

The same nursery has a small CaseIH Diesel tractor set up the same way.
