Hello,
I'm Bart from Belgium.
Just bought a Cub.
They are not common over here so I need a lot of information.
But I will make a topic on the right place for that.

Welcome to the group. You found the perfect place for any questions you may have.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

HI Bart, welcome to the forum. I assume yours is a French Cub?

Check out the HOW TO section...full of solutions to many common problems you may encounter.

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.

Thank you for the welcome.

I think it's a US built but don't know for sure.

See some photos in this topic :

Welcome to the Forum, Bart! I may run the risk of repeating some answers to your questions, but would rather give you too much information instead of not enough. Looks like your Cub is US made with high crop rear tires/wheels and regular front tires/wheels.

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 for maintenance and understanding your Cub) and any service manuals that interest you. Implement Manuals are also available.

Might also enjoy reading through this thread: What to do with a Cub you just brought home Before you try starting your Cub, make sure you prime the oil pump or at least watch the oil gauge to ensure you have adequate pressure at start-up. Here's a How To on priming the oil pump: How to Prime the Oil Pump

There are a lot of good threads dealing with Cub repair and maintenance in the How To Forum. Located here: How To Forum

We’d encourage you to take the Safety Test located in the Safety Forum: Circle of Safety Test and Profile Badge

Thanks for posting some pictures of your Cub. Looks like a project for you in the months ahead. It would be interesting to learn the story of how that Cub ended up in Belgium.

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.

I noticed that you have posted some pics of the casting dates (on cast iron pieces). One of our sponsors has a chart for cross referencing those dates. Located here: http://www.tmtractor.com/id/id_001.htm

Glad you joined us.
