Ohio Newbie

Postby bowogre » Thu Apr 25, 2013 11:46 pm

Hello! I recently purchased a Cub to mow my 2 acres. I always wanted one growing up, so I figured it was time to go ahead and get one. All my friends tried to talk me into zero turns, but when I was looking at them I felt like something was missing. My Cub has character and I really enjoy it so far. I'm looking forward to learning on here how to keep her in shape. I would like to thank everyone for what I've learned already just lurking on here for a month or so.

Welcome to the forum! Since you have been lurking you already know you are at the best place to be for Cub Info. By the way, you are located in the same town as Bigdog, an original member of this site. It is also the town where the Buckeye Cub Tug originated.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Smart move! You can get several Cubs for the same $$ as a zero-turn and mow in style too. Can't plow snow with a zero turn either.

Welcome to the forum and enjoy your Cub.

G'day and congrats to you on a very wise and economical choice in choosing a Farmall Cub to do your mowing chores. May not be as fast as a z-t, but sure is a heck of a lot more fun.

Well, I can attest to the fact that you will definitely learn how to do that. I never did a lot of mechanicals but I now can maintain/repair and do other neat things with my Cubs because of the amazing folks that are part of this community.

Nice to see another lurker come in from the weeds. Now start having some fun :D
