Drove the tractor today.

Postby Shopp'n Cubs » Fri Jan 16, 2004 8:33 pm

Well I made another 90 mile trip to visit my tractor today. Leon (seller) had moved it to his shop (heated) last week. Ran a little rough at first but finally smoothed out at idle. Still had a little trouble getting the rpm's up without killing it. Seller said it was pretty old gas and the carb may need some tweaking. But at least I got to drive it!

picked up the wheel wts., rear tires and blade and hauled them home.

He still needs to find the matching headlight and get the new battery in.

Just love the sound of the cubs. After running my Kubota all morning, it was nice to hear the little cub purrring.

Well, well, well. "Wait til spring," you said. Probably better off with the seller til warm weather, chuckle chuckle. Tires, weights and blade have already made it home???? I know what's coming next, and I wholeheartedly concur. Get that puppy home under the deck! You know you gravelled it for a reason! Kubota's are nice, but you need some serious Cub time! And you know it!!! When you get it home, just throw a tarp over it and a lightbulb underneath if it gets real cold.

Don't disappoint us..... :wink:
