buying cub tractor

Postby teddy1 » Sun Dec 29, 2013 12:05 pm

Hi guys. New to this forum. Thinking about buying a cub tractor. I believe it's a1953 and the asking price is $2500 Canadian. It looks good but it has no attachments with it. What should I look for and is the price too high? Thanks for your time. Gismo

Gismo, Welcome to the Forum. Here's a link to a current thread about what to look for when buying a Cub: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=81857 Here's another link to a "how to" on buying Cubs by Jim Foose: viewtopic.php?f=145&t=48032
The price sounds a little high without any implements, but Cubs may be scarcer north of the border also. You might want to think about what implements you will want, and check to see if they are available with a reasonable driving distance. I don't know what part of Canada you're located in, but that may make a difference on buying somethin in the States and hauling it home too.
