thanks for the link. I have a brochure that was printed in 45 for the dealers to start passing out in 46 introducing the cub that has many of those tractors and same pictures.

That is a great video. I have a question about one of the planter/cultivator units shown though. The video makes it hard to tell, BUT around 5:10 through 5:40 you can see the Cub planting (I think), and it looks like it has some sort of configuration placed way out front under the front axle pushing dirt and making the row. I assumed this was the "u-shaped" layoff bar with a wide shank on it, but to me it looked like a different setup and looked farther forward than the layoff bar would be.

SOme clarification on this would be greatly appreciated. Wish the video was clearer. I have attached screenshots of what I am talking about.

I can't take the credit for that, Batty54 found it and forwarded it to me.

Joe that was just great! Thanks.

I missed seeing the plow hit a rock -- that's a special time here -- Yikes! Clutch in, woah there -- Jeez. And seeing as when I plow (using the "swing" plow) I always land up with a ditch alojg one side --does the single plow land up with no ditch in the middle?

Didn't know that the Cub could haul at speed a full size hay wagon. Now I could use a larger (not full size) wagon -- my little cart (?4'x8') fills up too quickly.

And I wonder about that "Cub" decal with the circle up on the radiator sides -- is that decal standard on all Farmall Cubs? If so I've got to find a couple of them.

I'm not sure what a swing plow is, but to answer your question about the "ditch", it all depends on how you plow and how you start out. If using the 193 or 189, if you start on one end, establish a furrow and return back to where you started (with a 193) or turned around and went back down the same furrow the opposite direction (with a 189), and plowed from one side of the field to the other, you'd end up with a dead furrow at the other end.
If you established a furrow on one side, then went to the other side and established another, and continued to plow the field from both ends working to the center, then you'd end up with a double dead furrow in the middle of the field.

The circle cub decal was only used on the earliest of cubs. The early Cubs had "McCormick-Deering Farmall" on the hood, and the "Cub" decal on the doglegs. Then they went to "McCormick-Deering Farmall Cub" all on the hood, which no longer needed the Cub decal on the doglegs. So unless you have a Cub that has a SN of within the first couple thousand tractors, the "Circle Cub" decal is not necessary.

I know that Farmington Implement has re-done that original IH film and has scanned it to DVD format using high resolution copying. The quality is excellant !!!!!!! A very professionaly done DVD.
He has more CUB stuff to copy; let's encourage him to do it ! I am in no way connected with his company, just a very pleased customer.

I have watched a few of these videos and most of the cubs have what looks like 15 in front tires. Any ideas why?

Re: Great Video

I like the all red rear rims on the cub in the film. I didn't think they came with the red rear rim. Was that only on the pre-production run of Cubs or also on the early production cubs? I have Cub F550 and might like to change the rear rim to red, if so. Also, I would sure like to find a nice set of small rims and the 6" tires to go with them! Thanks for posting the video. Steve K.

Steve, I was looking at the color of the rims pretty close as well. I've come to the conclusion that they aren't actually red, but what we are seeing is the reflection of the red paint from the weights and centers. The age of the camera being used doesn't help with the bleeding of colors. At one point in the video when the disc is being shown, there are a few angles that the edge of the discs look silver, then red as the reflection of the frame hits just right.
Not all the tractors in the video are the same tractor. Some have 15" fronts, some have 12". As to the reason why the 15's were abandoned for production, I can only assume the cost was a factor.
