New Cub Owner in northern Minnesota

Postby Randy Tuura (RWT) » Sun Aug 02, 2009 1:12 pm

The town of Esko to be exact...
Had a Cub when I was a kid back in the late '60's.
Here's a picture

Moved away, had a family but now I'm back on the home place.
Have a new lovely wife to replace the ex...
And now I have a new Cub.
Image
That's me just after it was delivered.

I'm a machinist by trade.
I have a four acre lot in the north woods that is being taken over by weeds and brush.
Cubby will help in the chores.
When my riding lawnmower dies I plan on putting a Woods mower under Cubby and she'll be my new riding lawnmower.

Welcome to the forum Randy!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!

Welcome aboard. Be sure to look one of our cubfests near you. There is one in Wisconsin in the spring, and the one listed below my signature in illinois in april. The further you move closer to Ohio the more selection you have.

Sure do...

Aino showed me a axe one time he said belonged to his great-grandfather.
I thought it looked pretty new and I must have looked like I didn't believe it...

'Course it's had three new handles and a new head since then, but it was great grampa's alright! :?

Reading about all these "original" parts and whether a bolster was replaced, etc. always makes me think of that one about great-grampa's axe.
