I’ve been brewing a plan in the back of my head.
I sometimes have my friends and neighbors cubs back by my barn to tinker with getting them running right after they’ve been neglected.
I sometimes pick them up too. So I figure if I do enough of them I can trailer another one home for myself she won’t know the difference. If she ever asks if that’s ever going back to the owner I’d just say I’m waiting for parts. Technically not a fib. :wink:

john gave a good hint , it really is a safety issue . Implements are very heavy , and changing them often can be harmful to your back , knees , ect. One cub per implement is a small price to pay for good health preservation . coppersmythe.............................................

Roger Welch once said that the secret to keeping your wife happy with how many tractors you had was never putting them all in one place, it made them to easy to count.

i do have a little advantage , i keep mine at my sheet metal shop about two blocks away . a place she will only go to if i insist . 8) coppersmythe..........................................PS: in all honesty she sees it as a harmless hobby . lately i am very selective about my purchases . i will only buy one if it is better than one of the five i have now . i've also saved quite a few non-runners , and will continue . so much fun to hear them roar to life after years of neglect .

Brilliant... Safety first as always... Those implements are heavy (oh my back :wink: ) and I don't have a fast hitch set up... So in order to avoid injury while switching out the implements.. I WOULD need more cubs... Wife will surely understand.. :tractor:

Have her help with changing the implements out on your Cub. She'll get the idea on why more than one is needed. This works best with non-fast hitch Cubs.

When I was a teenager, we started farming a new place and my mom bought an old Cub to keep there so I wouldn't have to run the Super C back and forth on the highway between the places. After a few times of my mom helping me to change between cultivators and planters, she decided we needed something that was easier to change out the implements.

well the planets are not going to align on the 61, so I need to find another poor unloved loboy out there to feed my addiction, just need to find someone wanting to trade :P

(its all good, I usually get hosed on deals with my brother anyways :P ) :lol:

One word of warning Indie, mounted implements for standard cub and Lowboy do not interchange, and there are a lot more standard cubs and implements than Lowboy ones.

And to never ever give them numbers but give them names.

And every once in a while have a buddy bring one of his over. Tell the Mrs that you bought this on to sell. Then have him pick it back up a few days later when you “sell” it.

Yeah I have learned that reading here but I love the round nose lowboys, they just look cool! but, honestly I would love to have one in good enough shape to restore, at least one nice enough to repaint. Mine is busted up all over n welded. I will use it and enjoy it, it starts in a wink, runs good, cant seem to make it smoke. I will work on replacing a few parts here n there just to make sure it keeps on working. I have used it already to move some hay. would love a cub 22 mower and mow with it next season when I am making hay. Hay time is stiff neck time from constantly looking back at the implements. Last spring I rebuilt one good baler out of two. Now if you have never rebuilt the knotters and needles on an old baler, well you are in for a treat! ( still cant believe it works! ) :shock:
