1972 Farmall Cub value....bush hog availability

Postby bowles-airforce » Sat Apr 11, 2015 9:07 pm

Hi y'all,
I'm new to the forum and purchased my first Farmall Cub today......a 1972. I was wondering what they are valued at. Also I just read that the pto runs in reverse ruling out the use of modern bush hogs. Is this true. Pardon my ignorance.
My cell is (228)297-4519 text me and I can send pics
Thanks!

Welcome to the forum!

The PTO does turn opposite all others (they all turn wrong... :wink: )

Value, lots of opinions here, depends on condition, equipment and location, but if you are happy then you paid the right amount.

There are quite a number of styles, makes, models of mowers made for Cubs. All are lawn mowers or the sickle bar mower used for cutting hay.

Brush Hog. Depending on terminology and intended usage, I think you will find the Cub under powered and perhaps to light for my idea of brush hogging.

Don't get me wrong. I own two Cubs. They are great little tractors, with limitations.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I like to think that my Cub is worth what I paid for it. :wink:

Welcome to the forum! We'll need more info to give a value. I'm from MS also and will say that most folks selling cubs here on CL are too proud of them :-). I'll send you a text later in the day.
The Woods 42 mowers are common here in MS. Be patient and one will show up at a good price. I've seen a few on CL recently

They are too underpowered to mow tall/heavy stuff down like a lawn, as far as the decks, I have 2 complete ones 1 is still under the 56,--soon to come off and go up for sale too.---I also have several 59's for various tractors for sale too! thanks; sonny
