put my cub to work for the first time

had some bad mud holes in my driveway, what better a tool for the job then the cub. mudholes begone well at least until the rain screws it up again. when a nice little tractor, these little machines can push, i was pushing around dirt no issues. this machine is going to work great with snow; snow isnt nearly as heavy.

Maybe not on a per volume basis, but with snow, you're not just pushing at a little ways to level out the surface. 8 inches of wet snow on a 250 foot driveway sometimes gives me trouble.

Not sure where you are from, guess I gotta look up the zip ... but up here, snow is plenty heavy especially when you are pushing it up hill. However, you are discovering what many of us already know (based on experience) that a Cub is more than a simple little tractor. When used properly and within it's operating envelope, the Cub is one of the most versatile small (less than 20 hp) tractors out there period.

Many of us have taken this idea and adapted it to our own blades - Ellie's included which you can see in the first video.

There are a host of other uses that our Cubs have been adapted to. Imagination and safety are the only limiting factors.
