Great find for sure! Spend some time surfing this site, manuals and such to get familiar with it, there is a lot of information available.

Congratulations and at that price, I hope you can sleep at night! :D

Keep us posted,

The pictures remind me of the modified Cub that was at the Roundup this summer. The owner told me it was narrowed for a commercial green bean operation (if I remember correctly). Unfortunately, the pics I took didn't turn out. When I first saw it, I thought it was a Power King on steroids, but it was a narrowed Cub. John

This one was used for row crops between and orchard.. At least that's what I have been told. I'm still working on getting as much info on the tractor as I can.

Greg, do a search on orchard and you will find a lot of what Rick is talking about.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Just remember that a narrowed tractor turns (rolls) over VERY easy!
