I thought that green Cub was familiar--saw it last May at the Kansas Cubfest (muleboss'). :mrgreen: Looking forward to seeing it again this spring.

I may be wrong but I think IH made their own trailers at the Memphis plant.


If it was it had to be some type of agreement. I See the same style of stake pocket that I have on my 628

If you all insist on posting pictures of that thing, at least have the decency to do it like this, so it is not quite so sacrilegious. :lol:

Hey Russ, any word on that trailer? Just wondering if you put it in your yard yet. It doesn't matter who makes 'em, as long as it works behind your Cub. I put mine to work today. It comes in real handy when a small trailer is needed.

I like that John. Good job

Does that mean it cranks to the left going down instead of to the right going up?

Bill,I haven't got the trailer yet but it's not going anywhere. I'll probably finish the deal this week.
The picture above shows what looks like jack stands under the back of your trailer. Are they original or added.
I wonder if they were for the camper option to level up.

Also I received the front hitch with loop yesterday. Looks good. Thanks.
Do you know the length of the new bolts that are needed?

Russ, I'm not sure what the stands were for. Mine had a lot of steel brackets in the bed so they may have been used to stabilize what ever it was used for. I don't know if they are original or not.

Front hitch bolts should be about 2 1/2". I told another member the wrong size the other day. :oops:

Did you finish taking down all your Christmas decorations yet? That must be a huge job.
It was over 60 here today so we put all our stuff away and I spent some quality time with the log splitter.
I'm betting today wil be the last time in awhile that I'll split wood wearing shorts and a tee shirt.

Most of the visible stuff is down. I stopped for a while today to work on some things in the barn. I'll get more tomorrow.
