I just got my Cub today and could not be happier! What started as a search on craigslist for any used tractor that I could buy for a reasonable price (I was thinking about those ugly little "modern" tractors), ended up with a beautiful 1948 Cub in my garage. This is my first antique tractor, and now I can see why folks collect them and own several! Of course, I am preaching to the choir here... all I can say is that whatever bug y'all have, is really contagious!
The reason I got the Cub is that I have about 3/4 of an acre that I want to start working on. First I am planning to work the ground lightly (maybe with a harrow rake), so that I can seed it with native wild flowers and maybe some clover (the annual type, crimson most likely). My intention is to get some nutrients into the ground... and have it look great, of course! If that works as intended, I might start planting something more interesting the next year... need to determine what though. I know a couple of folks that own farms around here, so I will ask them. I might also post that question in this forum when the time comes.
Anyway, I have my very first question for you all: what can I do to keep the Cub secure? I do not want an ugly chain around it... just a quick/smart way to ensure that nobody can start it (including kids), or steal it. Something I can remove that is easy to re-attach would do.
Thanks in advance for this question, and for the several other that I am sure I will have later...
