Adapted Cubs...

Most of have seen plenty of photos of the French "Vineyard Cub" and French "Super Cub", the "Modified Lowboys" used as trains to pull carts, and George Willer's "Mini-B Cub" and "Rat Cub", but does anyone have any pics of Cubs that were customized for specialty uses, like this one made for de-tasseling corn (Photo courtesy of Wisconsin Historical Society):

I believe that there may have been a few at Red Power over the years, just wondering if anyone has any pics. Thanks!!

We do not want to forget the Auburn trencher cub

Hmmm, so no photos. Has anyone ever seen any one of these high modifications at a show? Original or good reproduction?

Here are a couple of odd ones from RPRU in PA. Forklift is serial number 501.

Raymond,
There is a modified Yellow & White Cub in East Windsor, CT used by a nursery to spray the bushes. The few times that I've seen it I have not had a camera. It sits 24"-30" higher than normal.
One time they had what looked like a 5' Woods Belly Mower mounted and they were trimming the tops off the bushes.

The same nursery has a small CaseIH Diesel tractor set up the same way.
