New from Western PA

Postby jeff@roberts.net » Thu Mar 17, 2022 10:11 am

Hello. New from western PA. Just bought a home that included a 1956 IH Cub Lo-Boy parked in the garage. The Cub has conveyed with the property since it was purchased in 1957. The cub was used to cut grass and appears to have always been kept indoors when not in use. All original - quite a beauty and purrs like a kitten. Growing up we had a Farmall Super A. Kind of fun to now have the A's baby brother!

Below is a link to some pictures and a video. I'd love to keep the Cub but, doubt I will be able to. Don't really have the room. Currently taking the place of my wife's car in the garage - which does not help my popularity!

Wow, that looks very original. Maybe has had some paint touch-up, a short piece of rubber fuel line and a new air cleaner pipe hose.
I think the tires and seat cushions are even original. Looks like it's never had wheel weights installed which is surprising.
The mower deck and grader blade both look original in near perfect condition. Well kept, hardly used 66 year old tractor.

I could not say tractor when I was 2 years old so I called it Err Err.

I loved this tractor then and I still love it now.

That Loboy is a real beauty! Put up a building, if you have to, but don’t let that one get away! And welcome to the group!

Welcome to the Forum! What a fantastic Lo-Boy! And a very popular model year, too. Congrats! The rest of this Welcome is assuming you'll change your mind and KEEP IT!!

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

Now that you’ve logged 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.

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

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

Remember:
  • Pictures are limited to 500 KB file size. Use an image reducer app or program to downsize pics.
  • 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.

:tractor:

P.S. If you do decide to sell it, then it won't take much to move it along. That is a very popular model and with the right equipment.
