I hate to demonstrate my ignorance, but what does the term "numbered Cub" mean? I have seen reference to it on several posts. Thanks.
Since retirement, the things I miss most are the holidays!
Those are Cubs whose days are numbered and are destined to be parted out.
No, I'm only kidding, it refers to the Lo-Boys such as the 154, 185 etc.
I don't believe in taking the bull by the horns. I took a goat by the horns once and that was enough excitement for me.

Cadets, on steroids, I call them. I hope the 184 can plow snow. I'm planning that job, for mine, some day. Ed

I read the forum every day without fail, as it is a great learning tool. Also some of the very witty replys give me a chuckle, especially from that Barnyard guy Nothing to beat a bit of humour or a wee laugh now and again it lifts the spirit
Cadet on steroids is a good answer! The one good thing about them is they have a higher HP Cub engine (not sure all of them do).
A Lo Boy is just a Cub with the finals tweaked forward and short front spindles....... despite what some people think, they are harder to get on and off than a Cub. And smaller than a flag!

They do have a few interesting features that the Cub does not:
1. Live PTO. This is achieved by using pulleys located between the flywheel and clutch to belt-drive a jackshaft to the PTO in back. When the belts go, the tractor needs to be split to replace them.
2. Available creeper gear. This allows the tractor to operate a snowblower or rototiller where an offset Cub cannot.
They have starter-generators like Cub Cadets too. The generator is also the starter.
Not I said "interesting features" not "improvements." While they're interesting features, they are also those so-called "weak points" that people always ask about when looking at tractors.
YEP! I've called them that too.
