Got a disc

Fri Apr 08, 2005 1:24 pm

I weigh 240lbs. and the anvil must weigh 150 lbs.
Now I can disc and turn around a lay off some furrows.

Congratulations! Well It looks as if that Billy and Millie 3 point really does the job.

Very nice Jim but from the looks of it you need a longer steering shaft. :lol: :lol: 8)

Why does the weight box have the center cut out of the framework or is that normal?.

I guess its normal for the weight box to be like it is. @#%$& Cub Owner's disc and one on JP Tractor site is the same. I think it's a Cub 28 but it had a FH point on it.

Jim, that was QUICK!! I just found it on 3-30-05

Thanks Dan for telling me about it. $75.00 was a good deal for it. Now find me a bottom plow. I can put the belly plow on with the 3-point on but it strains me. I think I can pull a 14 inch bottom. May need avgas. My Cub never stalls, just spins the wheels. How many gallons of water will 9:50 tires hold?

Sun Apr 10, 2005 9:42 pm

About 16 gallons each to the valve stem, 21 for a full fill.

16 Gallons [US] = 133.5242257 Pounds

21 Gallons [US] = 175.2505463 Pounds

That should hold it down.

at least you shouln't have as much worry about straight water freezing as we would.

Water has never frozen in my shop but thats why I was asking how much water they would hold so I would know how much antifreeze/water to mix in my barrel.

Hey Jim...Talk about STRONG hydraulics :roll: ...Your Cub Has Em' :wink: NICE DISC...but, I'm even MORE ENVIOUS of your Anvil :D !!!

Country my dad who was born in 1899 always wanted a anvil that would ring. He had his dad's anvil but it would not ring. He paid $100 for that ringing anvil in about 1960. I paid $1.25 for steel last week wonder how much a old anvil is per pound now days?? By the way I have both of the anvils now.

Hey Jim...You're ONE LUCKY MAN :D !!! Last time I even saw an anvil as nice and as big as yours...the price was $400.00 (I don't even know if it could "ring" or not!!!) 8) .
