Finally a Farmall owner

Postby RRicks1970 » Sat Jan 01, 2022 8:04 am

I have been maintaining a garden for 20 years with my in laws super A. Then two months ago he sold it and bought a shiny little Farmall cub that has no cultivator arms. Basically it's a parade tractor

Then last week I stopped to be friendly (nosy) at an acquaintance who out of the blue had a Farmall super A in his front yard. I offered to help him get it running right and he scoffed and told me to just buy it. Apparently he didn't want a tractor he wanted money. And not much money.

My next good fortune was a lady with "rusty tractor parts" come make offer add on FB. I left her place with everything for a planter/fertilizer set up except the hoppers. Back cultivator bars and spring rods. And she has a yard ornament super A and FC that I had to agree to remove from her yard as part of the deal. She is from Miami...came to North Florida for cheap land and sanity but could care less about rustic farm tractors and implements.

Now I find myself immersed in this forum and learning all I can about these tractors. And with two new yard ornaments :D

Welcome to the forum!
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Welcome to the Forum! Congrats on acquiring your tractors! Being in the right place at the right time can be benficial.

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

Now that you’ve logged your 2nd post on the Forum, you'll have access to the all the PDF Manuals on this site. There’s a few ways to do that:
  • From a desktop or laptop, go to "Quick Links" in the upper left corner of your screen. Hit that and a pull-down appears where you'll find "PDF Manuals".
  • You can also go to “Cub Info” in the upper toolbar, then hit “Rudi’s Manuals”. From there, you can access a variety of information.
  • If you're using a phone, go to the "Links Directory" (second category down the main page). Once in "Links Directory" , scroll down to the second section "Tractor Parts & Manuals" and you'll find them there.

You'll be able to download an Owner's Manual (very strongly recommended) and any service manuals that interest you. Some implement manuals are also available.

Might also enjoy reading through this thread (even though it’s for a Cub, much can be applied to any tractor just brought home): What to do with a Cub you just brought home

We’d encourage you to take the Safety Test located in the Safety Forum:

Take some pictures of your tractors and post them, we’d like to see them.

  • Pictures are limited to 500 KB file size. Use an image reducer app or program to downsize pics.
  • When you have a specific question, start a new thread in the appropriate sub-forum.
  • Before posting, use the Preview button before hitting Submit--it'll show you exactly what your post will look like, including pictures.
  • When adding your comments to a thread, be sure to look at the date of the last poster. If it’s more than a 6 months old, the posters are probably not going to see it. Consider starting a new thread.

Glad you joined us.

I could not say tractor when I was 2 years old so I called it Err Err.

I loved this tractor then and I still love it now.
