I'm Just Starting

Postby Lil'CUB » Sat Apr 12, 2008 2:14 pm

Well I managed to just get into the CUB line up, I think my first one is a demonstrator model.
So maybe you guys can help me with telling it apart.
I hope to share any knowledge I can with fellow members and I'm sure you'll teach me a lot.
Thank You for letting me in the group

Welcome to the forum. You'll find a lot of help here. Tell us at least the first three digits of your serial number. That can help determine if it is a demo. The accepted range is right between 99536 and 106511.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Nope not Kurt sorry

The first 3 #'s are 103
The tractor has been painted red, looks like with a brush sometime ago. The paint is chipped and scratched, but all over white seems to be the underlying color. The hood above the grille is worn off from the years and is shinning white about the size of my fist.

Overall the tractor is decent and will get new life eventually. The PO removed the Hydraulic unit but the linkage and such is still there. I don't have the tractor home yet but hopefully in the next couple of days will. It's not running now but should be able to with little effort I'm hoping.

Congrats on finding a demo for your first cub, there will be more to come. I got three demos currently, and it is as much fun searching for them as it is working on them and with them. Mark your calender for the 2nd Friday/Saturday in April 2009 for a gatheringf at my place called DOCFEST in Paris, Illinois, an opportunity for you to plearn a lot about cubs and meet a bunch of us as well.

Thanks guys,
Hopefully I can get it home by the end of the week and get some pictures up.
I'm excited as this will be a mowing tractor as I've got a lot to mow and my JD is getting tired from the hours of mowing. Really needed a bigger tractor since I mow about 9 acres.
I don't think I'll be able to make it to Ill. but sure would be fun.
I'm in southern Ohio so maybe I can hook up with some folks.
I actually stumbled upon this tractor thru my relations, which they bought for parts but don't really need it and it was going to be scraped if someone (ME) didn't save it.
I hate seeing old tractors being killed that way. As for another one, well don't know about that since I mainly collect JD LGT's but who knows might just drag another one home, that'll really set the wife off :lol:

As for implements I've got a line on a mower deck but not sure what size yet. Eventually I'd like to have a full set of implements cause I put in a garden so this should be helpful.

? though, how hard is it to find the hydraulic unit for these? I can buy one from the neighbor for $450 which I'm thinking is kinda high or is it?
What's the average price for a drawbar since I don't have one, 3pt hitch would be awesome as I would love to get a tiller for this cub.

Glad I joined as I've learned a lot and I don't even have the tractor yet :{_}:

several pictures take your choice. several albumns to go through. Shows the complete history of the redoing of my 1st demo cub. all you gots to do is right click on picture you want, and there should be an option to make it wallpaper.. if not take it to your computer photo viewer and do it from there.

john

Several people come each year from southern ohio to DOCFEST, so never say no. actually this was the first year there was more people from illinois then there was from ohio. and yes $450 for hydraulics is too much. Get ahold of one of the site sponsors they will hook you up. You have to be close to Ralph, he will treat you right, i think he even has one listed currently.

If that's Ralp's Cubs in KY, yeah I'm only a couple hours I think. Been further for crazier things :D

Thanks John, my summer is pretty well taken up unfortunately.
Will there be any at the Two Cylinder Expo in Springfield, Ohio? Probably not since I think it is mostly JD but I will eventually make it to one.
