NOT MY CUB, lol. my cub stays. i was wondering if i should sell some of the things that came with my cub that i might not ever use except for maybe a novelty item. i have one of the L shaped gear boxes and large belt pulley. i have 2 pullies for this setup. i know these were used by farmers to run corn grinders and buzz saws. i dont know if i will ever use this item. it is in excellent condition. i was wondering if i should sell it or keep it?? i also have a complete sickle bar mower and i dont know how much use that will get either. it is also in good condition. i bought my tractor to use it in my yard mowing, snow plowing, and hauling modest things around the yard. i have my blade, and i have a complete 60" danco c3 mower (thanks cubguy47) which will cover all things i currently want to use my cub for. i also might want to get back into gardening in the future so a single bottom plow might be in my tractor's future as well. i was wondering if i should hang onto this stuff that i dont use and see it as an investment that might grow in value or is this stuff worth what its worth and wont go up in value?
I got rid of my extra Cub equipment that I never used. Just because it was taking up space I could use for something else. Hung on to the implements I do use or have a future use for.
As far as near future value, probably not appreciate. Economy sucks and doesn't appear to be a turn around in the near future. So Gusbratz may be correct. However, if no one else in your area has available decretionary funds - then - - -.
I believe the universal answer to any question like this is one's financial bottom line. If It's bought and paid for and storage or liquidity isn't an issue, I would warehouse it, especially in this economy.
I don't sell anything because the moment I do, I'll need it and probably won't be able to replace it for what I let it go for.
As we say, it is your Cub/Cub implements and you will do with them what you believe meets your needs.
However, there will come a time when you may regret selling some of the things you have. Belt Pulley is used for many things aside from grinding corn and such. Do a search for the Ice Cream Cub. Interesting use for a Belt Pulley
There are lots of uses for things you never think you will use. And in the case of the Cub-22, well who knows .. you may/may not have a use for it, but as some have said, it will never decrease in value - it will probably increase in value. Or you could hang on to it and swap it maybe for a nice Cub-193 moldboard plow. Always have options if you have it, less options if you don't ...
Man would I like to have that planer The shingle mill too would be nice and a great treat at tractor shows. That is what I want to do someday is take my herd to a show, set it all up ready to do what they do at home. Maybe split some wood, drill a hole or two and if I really get lucky and get some more of these neat old implements/tools/equipment (like a washin machine) it certainly would be fun
Larry--In my (late 1950)dealer price book,belt pulley+pto is listed as one unit@ $37. Looks like you got the pulley and drive too even if you only wanted a pto,which was not standard equipment. Also in the "attachments"column--Wide tread-increased clearance attachments--$44. Mike
