Either one will work since there was not any real change between the two tractors. Go with the newest one if you want.

I agree about the vineyard Cub being the correct terminology.
Not so sure. Certainly has had some owner modifications. Thinking truck - vegetable farm tractor.

Measure the right hand axle tube. See if it's been shortened. Need photos of the front axle, how the right fender is attached to the axle tube. What size tires are on the tractor? What is the width of the tire track, center to center, and outside to outside?

Photos of the operator's platform and brake pedal.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Tire width is 39 inches..outside to outside. Dont have any of the other measuremnts. As far as the tires go, im not sure what the rear size is but they appear to be standard size. I went and got tubes fot the front and they were standard for sure.

This is a really neat conversion. Someone put a lot of thought and engineering into making this work! It looks "factory" by the workmanship that went into it!

Congrats. Neat cub!

I took a couple of pics of our Hebard A21 shop mule .Built similar to this cub and used all Farmall super A power train.The right axel extention is removed and the right final drive is directly one the housing. I this the way the orchard cub was made?

If I had to say orchard or vineyard, I'd say vineyard. Definitely not for an orchard, the most troublesome part of a tractor in an orchard is the upright muffler. But the narrow width makes it perfect for narrow row spacing like in a vineyard.

Not sure how it was done to be quite honest.

I should have said that the final drives on the shop mule I pictured are rotated ahead 90 degrees like a lo-boy so it looks a litte diferent from the rear.Should work on a cub as well
