Hello from the PNW

Hi folks,

I've got a lead on a '49 Farmall Cub with quite a few implements. Most likely will pick up this week with any luck. I've currently got ~2 acres in mixed vegetable production and I'm hoping to use the cub to mark my beds and cultivate. Very basic question here: Can anyone tell me what is the range of wheel spacing that I can get out of this tractor? I normally have beds spaced on 4 foot centers. Thanks in advance. Once I pick up the tractor, I will post pics and implements. As a follow up, noticed most of the users here are east of the Rockies, anyone out in Oregon or Washington using these?

You are right, most of the members are from farther east, but we have a few PNWers. You can set the Cub wheels to a 48" track, perfect for what you want to do. Here is a page from the owners manual that shows how to set the rear wheels for various widths.

G'day to you and hope that lead on the '48 works out for you :D Suggest you follow the links below and once you find out what implements etc., that are available, that you take a copy of the Implement Owner's Manual with you if you buy the package to ensure you get all the parts that you need and of course to make sure the implements themselves are complete. I would also suggest you read this article - How a New Cub Enthusiast Can Inspect a Cub Purchase as it will certainly be of help I am sure as you inspect the Cub.

Image to Farmallcub.com :big smile: Forum Family. And you have come to the right place for all things Cub related. 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. Enjoy!.

Hey! I'm from Washington! My farm is at Bluecreek, WA, about 6 miles NW of Chewelah, an hour north of Spokane.

I'm actually stationed in Astoria, OR in the Coast Guard. I bought my Cub in Naselle, not too far from you!

Hey WaMoo,

Glad you're out this way. I was just out towards Astoria and saw two cubs, looking fully restored, for sale right on HWY 30.
