Good safety discussion. Moderators, this should be locked and moved to the Safety Forum.

This is the first time I have been glad to have a cluttered shop. The cub tipped over against the tool cart which then leaned against the wall, and everything stopped moving. It only took one hand to move the cub a way from the tool cart enough to make sure the radiator was not damaged. Had my shop been nice and neat with lots of room it would have gone completely over, and at the very least damaged the radiator. As it was, the only damage was a very small dent in my tool cart caused by the radiator support.

Your shop isn't cluttered John, I have a friend who has a shop you couldn't even get a Cub in it. His work bench is 3' deep with "stuff" and if you ask for a wrench it takes 10 minutes to locate. Stopped by one day and his brother was laying under his truck putting an alternator on, in front of the shop on a piece of cardboard (it's a Toyota and alternator is on bottom). I said you know you have a concrete floor in the shop? He said yeah but I can't get in there.
God is good, all the time!

I finished removing most of the old paint and the oil and grease accumulated on it and brought it back inside the shop today and did a little experimenting. Even with the splitting stand on the left side it is not real stable. Depending on whether the stand wheel was pointed to the left or right made a difference as to how easily it would tip. As a result I definitely do not recommend using this system to support the rear of a cub.
