Tractor Poor

Postby ffgonzo » Tue Sep 16, 2008 10:14 am


A little about myself, my name is Jim and I live in a small town in Mid Michigan. I have a beautiful and very understanding wife and two lovely, but crazy little girls. I am a full time employee for the Michigan Army National Guards, which takes a lot of time away from home, a part time Firefighter and I would have to say a part time Hobby Farmer with all the animals we own, I needed something to keep my kids busy.

I am new to these things they call tractors. I was looking for a trailer in March of this year and found one that came with a 1946 "A". The deal was so good I could not turn it down. Since then I have aquired another 1946 "A" and a 1948 Cub. Well I would have to say that my wife aquired the Cub, she drove by it one day and the next day we owned our first Cub. So I would have to guess that the Red Fever bug has bite us hard. We have purchased 3 tractors in less than 5 months. I have my hands full.

Thanks for the forum, I am looking forward to the good times.

Welcome Jim! Sounds like a family affliction! You'll enjoy this site!

Jim, welcome to the forum. :D

I think that you will find that, not only can you get good information on your Cub here, but on your A's as well.

Here is some information to help you with your wife's purchase :big smile:

If you click on the Site Rules, Regulations, & Important Information, it will point you to :arrow: the Welcome Wagon wherein you will find links to many useful sites and topics. One of which is the Cub Manual Server where you will find a bunch of really useful links.

And for your A's .... on The Cub Manual Server has some limited A resources, and we are hoping eventually to have some more on the A and other Letter Series Manuals as well.

Congrats on your new acquistions :applause:
