Cub Sights in Nevada

Postby Bill Hudson » Mon Nov 05, 2012 9:44 pm

Thought you folks might be interested in some of the Cub sights from our recent trip through parts of Nevada.

I was a day late for the tractor show in Beatty, Nevada. Saw this Low Cub on a trailer at a restaurant (Mel's Diner, great comfort food).

Saw one other Cub, mounted on a high stand in front of a repair shop, but I do not remember where it was. There were at least three Binder pickup that I would have liked to bring home, however, they were all being used as work trucks earning their keep.

Thanks for sharing :D Now that's a true low boy there lol. Only one chain holding it down on the trailer is kinda scary to say the least. Definitely a neat rig. Just gotta watch the speed bumps :lol:

I'd turned it in some other direction then back at me. :roll:
Noticed the finals turned all the way upside down, with the shaft play that's usually there my bet is there's no oil at all inside.

Thanks Bill, I always enjoy seeing stuff that's different.

Looks a similar to Rat Cub. I would be interested to know the story behind this one. Steve

Long ago, somebody posted an old old picture of a very low Cub. This tractor reminds me of that picture. Anybody remember that picture and know where it is?

I think it was from the Wisconsin Historical Society, Jim... Can't seem to find it now, though...

Jim,

Is this the one you are looking for? Notice it too has a strange exhaust, missing headlights, and no hydraulics.

Jeff:

Yeah, that one is the so-called Avocado Cub as it was used in an Avocado orchard. I think that would be the one Jim is thinking about. It was the first one to hit my "that's it" button.

Stan:

Don't remember seeing that one....

Still wondering what they would do with a tractor like this...

I searched the archives for threads on the so-called Avocado Cub .. and yes I have remarked before that I did not coin the term but it was used by others and possibly by the guy who had some similar for sale. Avocado Cub

Rudi,

It is a cool looking cub and would love to have one in the collection. However, why would the 2"-4" drop over a Lo-Boy make any difference in the Avocado Orchard? What purpose "Job" did the cub serve?
