That's a 170 planter. See here: http://www.cleancomputes.com/Cub/Cub%20 ... -20-52.htm
I would love to have the mounting frame from the planter in the video.

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.


Raymond, I wonder though if some of the pre-production Cubs had red rims, i.e. reference pages 47, 50, 51 of the "Farmall Cub photo archive" by Letourneau.

Where can I find that book? I don't think I've ever seen it.

I think someone posted a while back it is not published anymore, I did a search on Amazon, :shock: I bought a copy years ago, but surely these prices are not legit....

They're red. I have seen other pics of preproduction tractors during that timeframe and they had red rims as well.

Also the Farmington Implement Co. DVD's are excellent. The first one, DVD 1 has the film from 1953 called "INSIDE HARVESTER." There's some pretty good footage of the Louisville plant and Cubs on the assembly line in that one. And it's in color!!

that was a great video, I think it should be placed on the manual section or somewhere it can be viewed anytime,on Farmall Cub, without looking for this post. I really enjoy the old time photos and videos

It looks like the Cub running some belt-driven tool has three wheel weights on each wheel.
Since retirement, the things I miss most are the holidays!

The pictures on pages 50 and 51 were obviously taken the same time and place as the film segment from about 4:10 to 4:20. It looks like they stopped the tractor about 6 feet past the location at the end of the segment and took some stills, including the one on page 50. The one on page 51 is the same place with the tractor coming the other way.

There are a lot of differences between some of the preproduction Cubs and the production version. The early ones were built during WWII and materials availability could have had some effect on what was built. If the standard rust treatments were in short supply, it may explain the painted rims (if that is red paint).

Brian:

Those prices are legit for used copies. The book isn't published anymore. I have been watching for one at a more affordable price and I finally got one on :eBay: for $35.00US IIRC. Took me a number of years to get one at an affordable price and I simply got lucky as no one else happened to be looking for it. I was the only bidder. Most of the prices I see for this particular book is well over $100.00US used even on eBay. I seriously doubt that anyone would get over $400.00 for a new one though. The prices on Amazon are high because the sellers know what it is worth and how rare they are compared to other models by the same author. The one I got appears new, not a ding on it.

There are currently none on :eBay: at this time but it would be worth using this search string....: Farmall Cub: Photo Archive by P. A. Letourneau, I am sure one will show up soon, they usually do.

Hello all. I posted the video and I must say it is amazing. My 1947 cub is SN 1814 so it makes the video special to me. I have just uploaded a another video on farmall's cotton picker.

I love the forum and I am looking forward to talking to all this spring when I go over the cub to repair leaks etc AND to figure out the smoking thing. Until then enjoy the latest video. I will have more in the future.
