I just got my first cub this week. I think it will be a good one for me to learn on. It runs good but does need a good cleaning and a few parts. I am trying to locate a fasthitch lift rod for it and it needs a seat pan to replace the cobbled up parts of a deluxe seat frame that someone mounted on the post but I am anxious to get to work on it. I mainly bought it to work in my ever expanding garden, plow, disc, cultivators and blade hopefully coming soon, and help with chores around the yard. I can't make it to nice or I won't be able to put it to work. Unless I get another one! LOL These things are addicting!
