Another Howdy from NC

Postby Tarmacvic » Tue Nov 06, 2012 4:43 pm

Hello everybody,

I purchased my first Cub in August. Thanks to all of the site's information, I have a manual and implement brochures. I now know it is a '55 and it's gonna have a new gas cap. From what I was told it had been used as mower for its' entire life.

A few weeks ago while traveling overnight on business, I watched some of the website videos. My wife called and asked what I had been doing. I told her I was watching "Tractor Porn"... I gotta go to the Farmall museum in Florida now and see all of those shiny red tractors in person and I want to make it to a CubFest next year. May be I can see a gristmill in person.

I also got a pickup load of attachments from another location. Now to figure out what I have, what Is missing and how they all go together.
This was going to be sold as scrapmetal. I am glad I got it.

G'day and congrats :applause: on acquiring your 1st new to you Cub. I am pretty sure that it won't be your last -- they do get very addictive -- and with your comment on what you are watching -- I would probably put money on it that you are already addicted :lol:

Follow the links below, check out the Implement Manuals on the Manual Server to help you identify what is in the bed of the pickmeup.

Tarmacvic, Welcome to the Cub Forum. As you've probably already seen, there are a lot of friendly and knowledgeable Cubbers here. Your picture of the implements is a little too small for me to make out much. It looks like a couple of hoppers for planters/fertilizers, cultivators, etc. If you need any help, or have any questions, feel free to ask.

Welcome to the forum.

I am glad your were able to save that one. Yes, they are very addictive and I really enjoyed working on and using mine, not to mention all the nice folks I have met while doing so.
