Hey from SE PA

Postby D8Chumley » Tue May 17, 2011 8:22 am

Hello- new here, new toy is a Farmall 100 with a Woods L59 belly mower in decent shape. Purchased by my father-in-law, we- mostly me- will be working on it/using it to do odds and ends including mowing some grass and carting some firewood, nothing too tough :D I am a 43 yr old heavy equiptment operator for a decent-sized construction outfit here, working mostly in PA but I have worked in DE and VA. Looking forward to tinkering and fixing up this old girl!

It IS plenty big enough for what I will use it for, definately a good size. I think I'll keep the Cub Cadet 1517 garden tractor though, the 100 is too big for mowing behind my house.

Tim:

G'day and congrats :applause: on acquiring that new to you 100. Although the server is primarily focused on Cubs we do have some information on Super A/AV which is the forerunner of the 100 and we do have the Preventive Maintenance manuals... hopefully those may be of use to you.

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!.

Welcome to the forum!

I am also a new owner of a 100 and think its' size is a great compliment to a cub (or two) in the vegetable garden.

Welcome, I've only seen one 100 in my area, they are a nice looking tractor.
Stick around and have fun.

I will. Just been real busy lately with work and coaching my sons baseball team etc... Not much progress on the 100 since the drive belt for the mower deck. My father-in-law doesn't seem to want to get out in the garage and do anything to it. I may need to give him some encouragement :lol:
