Hi all new member still shopping for my first cub

Postby bambooturtle » Sat Aug 01, 2020 9:08 pm

Glad to be here and eager to learn and likely annoy you all with questions.
I am in Oregon (North coast) and still shopping for my first cub tractor. Years ago I had a kidney busting '57 International dump truck. it was a bumby drive but god I loved driving that thing. Such great character!
Anyway its time I upgrade my contemporary craftsman lawn tractor and start doing more with my acres besides just mowing the grass!
and if I am gonna do it I of course I need to do it in style, I can think of no better style than a Farmall.
Cheers all

Welcome to the Forum! Even though you don’t have a Cub yet, there’s lots of info here to inform your decision.

Take some time and read through a few threads to acquaint yourself with the Forum:

Don't know if you have any of the manuals for a Cub, but after your 2nd post on the Forum, you'll have access to the all the PDF Manuals on this site. There’s a few ways to do that:
  • From a desktop or laptop, go to "Quick Links" in the upper left corner of your screen. Hit that and a pull-down appears where you'll find "PDF Manuals".
  • You can also go to “Cub Info” in the upper toolbar, then hit “Rudi’s Manuals”. From there, you can access a variety of information.
  • If you're using a phone, go to the "Links Directory" (second category down the main page). Once in "Links Directory" , scroll down to the second section "Tractor Parts & Manuals" and you'll find them there.

You'll be able to download an Owner's Manual (very strongly recommended) and any service manuals that interest you. Implement Manuals are also available.

We’d encourage you to take the Safety Test located in the Safety Forum: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=68084

Might also enjoy reading through this thread (even though it’s for a Cub, much can be applied to any tractor just brought home): What to do with a Cub you just brought home

There are a lot of good threads dealing with Cub repair and maintenance in the How To Forum. Located here: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=11

When you get your Cub, take some pictures and post them, we’d like to see it.

Remember:
• When you have a specific question, start a new thread in the appropriate sub-forum.
• Before posting, use the Preview button before hitting Submit--it'll show you exactly what your post will look like, including pictures.
• When adding your comments to a thread, be sure to look at the date of the last poster. If it’s more than a 6 months old, the posters are probably not going to see it. Consider starting a new thread.

Glad you joined us.
