New cub lo boy and new to site

Postby Binderjohn » Tue Jul 10, 2018 10:29 pm

Hello everyone, I am new to the world of cubs, but I have had cub cadets and all sorts of internationals since I was a kid. I currently have a large collection of stationary engines, cub cadets, farmalls, pick ups, farm trucks, tools, implements and a working IH fridge. I recently purchased a 185 lo boy with loader, tiller, rear blade, front blade frame, and a 154 lo boy parts tractor, a handful of remaining standard cub pieces. I am debating on what direction to take my cub parts. A row crop type cub built from a low boy could be unique. I will try to post some pictures when I figure out the site.

Welcome! Not many IH-15 tillers out there. I suspect your 185 also has a 3-point and creeper options as well.

Welcome to the FORUM. After your second post you should be able to access all the features available, including the Manuals section at the Quick links tab, top left corner of this page. Lots of information and willing folks to share their knowledge. Good luck.

Welcome. If you provide a list of your standard Cub parts, we can tell you if they fit your 185. Sheet metal parts won't interchange, but a lot of the mechanical parts will.

It's always good to have a parts tractor on hand.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Take some time and read through a few threads to acquaint yourself with the Forum:

As Stan mentioned, after your 2nd post on the Forum, you'll have access to the all the free PDF Manuals. They are located via "Quick Links" in the upper left corner of your screen. Hit that and a pull-down appears where you'll find "PDF Manuals". Through that link, you'll be able to download an Owner's Manuals and any service manuals that interest you. Implement Manuals are also available.

Glad you joined us.
