Uh Steve..................................... the dirty side goes down.

Seriously, I hope no one was hurt. This just points out the necessity of those wedges between the front axle and the bolster.

I hope and pray no one was hurt :!: Cubs can be mended.
Maybe you can write a "How NOT To Jack Your Tractor :?: :?:

Glad you were not hurt. I think Donny has a point and it would be an asset to the How To Section... let me know what you think about it please. :idea: :?:

I think Eugene had a good idea. It should go in the indicated "How To" showing what can happen.

Well that is one easy way to adjust clutch fingers. Now you can get right at the hand hole.

I had almost the same experience minus landing on the floor. :oops: :oops:

How did the cub flip over?
Did you have the rear tires off and it was leaning and than flipped over?
Did you take the right side tire off and than it flipped over?

The story could be helpful to virgin flippers and of course the experienced flippers (like my self) could get a reminder of what not to do.

I was taking wheels off had left side on jack stand with wheel off, right side on jack stand, and when i pulled that wheel off it had wheel weights on it shook the tractor and the left jack stand kicked and down it went. :shock: I don't know if wedges would have helped but I will use them from now on. :oops:

Steve the truth sall set you free :!: glad no one was hurt. i know it made you sick to see your cub like that :cry:

I'm wondering how you righted the Cub :?:

Hey Steve...GLAD YOU'RE O.K. :!: :wink: Jack Stands Are Good, but they're NOT 100% Reliable. :!: :oops:

If your Cub's rearend was up on blocks, and the front was wedged between the bolster...I don't believe she would have flipped over :shock:
