My '47 # F550 is my favorite, although not running as of now. Hope to get to it this summer for a good fixin' if my neck and back problems allow me to.
My LoBoy with disc and rear blade was very handy in redoing my back yard and my storage yard a couple of years ago, too. I guess I like them all! Steve K.

Naw Boss, that is the Lo Boy, my fort mowing machine. I was thinking of putting the loader on it, but it will probably keep it the way it is (with some customization??).
Not sure if that one is a favorite one or not, but a very good Cub! There are some advantages to a Lo Boy.

Hmmm...Good question! Image
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

My favorite is the 69, Yellow/White fast hitch that I purchased several months ago, however mowing or plowing snow with the 49 is also very good mental therapy.
I have never met a farm tractor that I didn't like, but he Cubs are special.
I started out with nothing and now I only have half of that left !

My favorite Cub isn't one of mine, it's Bob Perry's Yellar Cub. Pulls 25 people on a hay wagon on hay rides.

I guess when I think "Cub" I have always thought of the 47-54 year models. The square nose Cubs sure do grow on me though. My Cub, the Paperweight is a '49 and though it was a borderline POS when I got it, I have kept on until I have it just about like I want it except for a few small details I'll get around to "one of these days." I have been tempted a time or two to sell it and fix one of my Super A's,buy another Super A, but the truth is it's such a plowing little SOB, it is wonderful for cultivating really small crops, and I like it better on the sickle bar mower than a Super A. So even though I lust after one of those red/white '64 model square noses, I guess The Paperweight is still my favorite

In pondering this question, I suppose "Cubota" (my "48" with the Kubota Diesel engine) is probably my favorite, but I'm also quite fond of "Scotty", the "57" that I bought from George Willer. I did a good bit of work on "Scotty", as well as a few others of his and "Scotty" just kinda touched my heart. I always display it in George's memory.

My only Cub is a 1970 that called to me from a tractor dealer lot as I drove past. It lead me to buy a B and then a M Farmall. I have met a lot great folks because of the little cub. And I joined a great Cub tractor forum too ! I see another cub in my future for sure. I like the looks of the early cubs.

My favourite Cub would be any Cub that I own, however if I have to choose, I guess it would be Ellie-Mae my first Cub.


She is my main workhorse and test bed for all of my projects :D
