Trial Run

Postby Barnyard » Wed Jun 26, 2019 11:30 pm

So early this morning I decided to set sail with the newly christened SS Cub Barge for her maiden voyage. This heavy weight assault vehicle is ready for action armed with state of the art tiedowns, heavy duty side boards and handles and pins to properly defend those boards.

The biggest asset is the addition of the latest in Cub locating technology, the CubLoc VII. This newest innovation in Cub locating systems can detect Cubs in virtually any atmosphere, whether it is sitting behind a house or buried deep inside a barn covered under a tarp and bales of hay. Once activated, any Cub within range will jump on the passing vehicle that is equipped with the system.

We left southwest Ohio at about 7:15 and randomly drove around the state until five hours later when we found ourselves in the extreme northeastern part of the state. I then activated the system. Within 45 minutes we had two pretty nice specimens jump aboard. I must say, this is one of the best add-on devices a guy could have. It can be activated from your dash or remotely with an app on your iPhone.

One of these will be getting a front mount broom and the other possibly a Wagner loader or a mower deck. Better pix to follow in the morning.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

I thought the old system was working pretty well! I replied to your PM.

Bill, I am wildly intrigued by this technology.
A few questions:
1. Can it distinguish whether the detected tractor is currently in operation (with the owner in the seat)?
2. Is there add-on software available to detect implements not connected to the tractor?
3. What if the trailer is already FULL and you have forgotten to power down the CubLoc VII?
4. Is the heads-up display a distraction while driving?
And, from a personal perspective,
5. Are there any companies out there that have developed ANTI-CubLoc jamming technology? (I like my Cubs. For now I have completely wrapped mine in aluminum foil for protection.) :)

I thought Bill's initial post was an absolute riot....only to be topped by this!!!!!!! :lol:

Oh, and just to be safe, I'm heading to COSTCO to buy an industrial role of aluminum foil!! :wink:

Don, I will try to answer these as best as I can.
1. As we passed through Williamsfield Ohio,Rosanne said she heard what sounded like a muffled scream just before there was a thump and the truck should. Either I ran over somebody or the CubLoc VII sucked a Cub out from under a guy using it and placed it on the trailer.

2. That is under development. From what I understand, the manufacturer is trying to get the software to distinguish between Farmall implements and other brands of implements.

3.There is a safety feature built in that will stop capturing Cubs if you have a full or unsafe load, However the system will record the exact coordinates so the operator can return and retrieve anything left behind. The nice thing is, the controller can be easily attached to any GPS to keep track of location.

4. The display is just like a GPS or smart phone. There is no more distraction than one of those.

The package says "can detect Cubs in virtually any atmosphere", so I can't really answer that. I would believe that to mean nothing can block it. However, I will add, neither of the two I brought home yesterday had any traces of aluminum for attached, so the question remains.

Here is the back view.

Competition is getting even more fierce!

Now , if this new technology can only discriminate for year and condition....

Bill,
You need to head out my way and see if this one jumps on the trailer.
Meadowbrook Farm East Longmeadow, MA.jpg

This one has a full set of cultivators on it along with front and rear weights.

There's another one, 1954-56 in a field on the same farm in East Longmeadow, MA. No telling what might be in the barns!

I drive by this everyday on the way to and home from work.

Indy, don't give up...you may hit the lottery some day and be able to hire a team to collect for you, especially if you can purchase or knock off Barnard's new technology :wink: unless of course he patents it.
