Hi Rob,
Did you buy the Cub in Salisbury, Ma ? If so, it looks a lot better in your garage than it did in that shed! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I bought this Cub about 3 weeks ago... 1956 Lo-Boy. Really excited to have it, runs great but 2nd gear a little noisy. Came with a sickle bar mower that I plan on using, but other than that just enjoy looking at it! This truly is a great forum with an unbelievable amount of info and help. Will be looking for the correct grill for it, seems to need very little else for now.

Happy Holidays to all,

Nice to see it go to a good home :) Looked at it about 6 weeks ago but I'm new to Cubbing and it not running scared me. Every time I drove my that shed I thought of it just sitting there.. Best of luck with it, looks much happier already!
