New guy to the forum.....living out West (where it's not so dang cold and snowy!).
I attached a pic of my '56 Cub....trying to decide wether or not to rebuild it or sell it to a good home.
If I keep wandering around here for very long, I'm sure I'll want to keep it and get it running again!
No. That looks like a moldboard plow with a sleeve hitch. It would be used with a garden tractor sized outfit, possibly a 2-wheeler. The parts on your tractor look more like part of what is in this picture. It may not be as wide as what is pictured. Given what is still on the tractor, the rest would probably look like a pile scrap iron.
Dave, Welcome to the Forum. You probably won't get many votes to sell your Cub, but that's your decision. If you have any questions, problems, or need help with anything, feel free to ask. You'll find a lot of good information on the Forum, and a lot of Cub lovers.

I have a small box with the metal parts that hang down out in the garage somewhere I think (if they haven't gotten left behind at the last move).
Thanks for the welcome aboard Bob
You will probably get lots of encouragement to rebuild your Cub we like to see that happen. Besides, ifn it is in your thoughts to do it, you are probably considering a winter project and that is always good -- keeps us out of trouble The links below might be of help..
Welcome to the forum. Enjoy the ride. Get out the wrenches and start working on your Cub.

That's a nice looking project cub. I'm sure everyone here would say fix it up. The mid to late 50's were among the favorites. Welcome aboard.
you were asking about whether to keep or sell? If you ask me it sorta depends on if you have the time for a cub. what i mean by that is do you have the time? the mechanical know-how? and are you willing to take on the challenge of owning a cub? I`m 13 and sorta can handle it, BUT i am the 9th generation to have motor oil run through my veins. and if i dont know some thing i find out here or i ask one of the many farmers around me that still use old equipment.
SO BASICALLY UP TO U!!! good luck

I had to look on the map to see where Allyn is located and found it on the Kitsap Peninsula. I am located in Central Washington out side of Zillah. There are a few of us out here with Cubs widely scattered throughout the state. Does your Cub run at all or is it strictly ornamental at this time? I have an acre of land and find the Cub invaluable for all sorts of uses. It plows, mows, cultivates, and pushes snow. Of course snow isn't much of a problem where you live, but it is handy for pushing dirt too. After you get a few implements you'll wonder how you ever got along without it. Welcome to the forum and we'll try to help you any way we can with your Cub, even if it is just moral support. Warning: Cubs are addictive!

Thanks for the welcome aboard and thoughts everyone!
I think I'll keep the Cub for now, and get to rebuilding it in the (hopefully) near future.
It did run when I parked it over at my sis's a few years ago.....but I'm certain I will have to go through it and make it worthy again. Heck, the tires are flat to begin with!
Jim Becker: Here's a photo of what I found in the box I mentioned.....the tips have the metal things welded to 'em.
I don't recognize those specific tools (they used a variety for different conditions/crops) but those certainly look like tools that would have been used with it.
