I decided to try a little plowing on a sunny fall day in nc. with my 56 cub.

This is my 13 yr old granddaughter Tiffany, she looks right at home on the cub.

It was in first gear and of course I was close by just in case.

Looks great Paul! The little lady appears to be having fun hepng out. Those youngsters always seem at home on a Cub. Thanks for sharing.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Boy that looks like fun! I spent the while day building new nesting boxes for my chicken coop. I would rather have spent some time on the Cub.

Thanks for posting. :D

Looks like you and Tiffany got it done. Neat bonding experience; she'll always remember that sunny day at grandpa's house when he let her plow the garden with the Cub.

Great memories! Thanks for sharing them with us! :D

Hi Wells Knob
It was a beautiful weekend in NC. We live in Patterson nc on the other end of Hwy 268. I got my tractors out and exercised them too. Nice Cub.
I am hoping for grand kids to share my tractors with too.

Good going, I had a friend up from Kinston over the weekend and we played with my toys on Saturday. He has a small truck farming operation and brought up a bunch of sweet potatoes.

Great pictures!

If you ever need any assistance let me know I just live a little ways from you!!!

Rudi,

We did have a good time, Tiff is a little bit of a tom boy, she likes doing stuff like that. Now if that had been my grandson who is 8 yrs old, I would have had to run for for my life and he would think that was fun. The little cub was running good, but you could see a trace of blue smoke when it was pulling hard.
It is enjoyable just learning how and what you can do with these little tractors. Even though most of these cubs are 50 to 60 yrs old they can still do a hard days work if need be.
