Poor "Cinderella"...aka "Bruno". All my others are underslung, so easy to cover them. Plus they had expensive paint jobs, so...

Bruno at least has a roof over his head! And he is well coated with Fluid Film. Seems to be lasting, and doesn't feel sticky or gummy.

And that's correct if it's marked for kids comments are automatically turned off. Youtube hot sued by the FCC for violating some child internet privacy act. I have no idea how the law was defined but they were sued line 7 million dollars by the federal government last year. I think it had some to do with they interpreted it by people making videos for kids or kids watching videos and then anyone could come t to those kids etc and it was an open line of communication...inviting predators I guess. Bad thing is that if you mark a video for kids or your channel as kids it's demonetized, meaning you don't make any money. If you don't mark it kids their system finds it and will change it as you have violated their policy that you had to agree too to post on YouTube.

I had to go back and change the settings on all of mine. I was thinking ya sure kids can see this. That was a mistake.

You know as a sales tactic back in the day Farmall dealers used to hold demonstrations with Cubs square dancing


I never saw the cub one, that would be interesting!

But I have saw the Super C fast hitch square dance video on youtube!

How about a square dance with 4 Cubs, and for the partners, a 193 plow, 38 lift disk, 172 runner planter and 144 cultivators set!
That would be a long dance, since putting the planter on takes me about a hour if I remember right! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I see you put the non slip strips and or bolted rubber matting. I recently put down nonslip material on the cub and the SC and I can't believe I didn't do it before.

Nice looking cubs, and green grass .
Here - 17 this morning ,has been this way for about 10 days already and looks like another week in the deep freeze . That is a good idea to cover up the cubs, I use old bed sheets to cover mine up in the garage, it really keeps all the the dust off. When I was looking for my tractor I visited with a tractor guy with 50 plus different tractors and as many different vehicle ,and he had them all covered with old bed sheets.

Looks like the lowest will be tomorrow night. Every forecast I look at is a little different, but the one in front of me right now says -26. At least we haven't had much snow to move. I think I've plowed 4 times so far all winter.

Having grown up in Florida, I was a teenager before I saw my first snow. Now, in NC we do have 4 seasons, which I have come to enjoy. But -17 or -26 and inches or FEET of snow??? You guys are braver & made of more stout material than I !!!

Not as bad as Jim,---but all week here been high of zero and lows of -11, so far! Had maybe 3 or 4 inches of snow, --- BUT 30 to 50 mph winds with it from the North--Northwest. At best I make it out once to the mailbox and back in---- cant hack the cold plus cant put my winter pants on with these diapers, so its light bibs and run---well walk like heck!
For cubs I still have 6 --- neighbor got addicted after helping me get the cultivator on the 56 and bought 2 of his own to play with. Transmission bearings were out on one of his and that was a total tear down, and his radiator on the other one was junk. He has both of them back runnin now.
One of mine has the bearings out of it too from what it sounds like --- might get some put in it but not likely, since we are trying to get the 310 fixed.
Still have my A and SA, neither one run right now.
Ice storm broke the big pine tree off here by the house and landed on 2 cubs ----wont know the damage til it thaws out so I can start sawing up the mess and draggin it out to the chipper.
I like the 185 that has the creeper gear to mow with. Didnt mow much last year, only trimmed ----neighbor kept my stuff mowed with his 8' Husler Z-turn.
Enjoy your tractors! --- You have nice ones!

Good cheap covers if there in a place that they can't get wet. My tractor and hers as well (at least the outer ones) are in a place that they can get blowing rain on them. Under a shed but rain can blow a long way under a shed. And wet cloth covers would be worse than no cover at all, holding that moisture against the metal.

I eliminated about 3 acres of mowing by planting 2,000 white pine and blue spruce trees on 8-foot centers 30 years ago. Let about 450 remain on the property and sold the rest from the transplant bed, other than 220 of the best ones grown in containers. Now my 5-row conifer fence line is the best no-maintenance fence I could have imagined. And, no more mowing. The 2 year-old seedlings were only 6 cents each back then and turned out to be one of the smartest things I've ever done.

When they were young, I mowed between them in both directions and it was a lot of extra work. But, the payoff was worth it. Even bought a 1959 Chevy Viking with a 48-inch Vermeer tree spade mounted on the back. Many of the trees have been sold and planted locally and I love to see them thriving everywhere. Our soil is typically sandy (acidic) and works well for the conifers. Not the best for grass anyway.

I've done the hay thing and it's no wonder nobody wants to do that job.

I guess I am a nut, because I enjoy making hay (when the weather agrees)!

Well, except the part where I restack it in the barn!

Funny you mention pine trees, because years ago, I had the bright idea to buy pine seedlings and plant them in pots.

Let them grow for 2, 3, maybe 4 years and start selling them for a little extra coin to reinvest into my farm.

When it came time to sell, I put a sign out front.

Within a few days I got a visit from the Ohio plant inspector.

He said I can not sell live trees without a license.
License at the time was $125 a year! :(

So I said ok and did the paperwork and paid the guy.

Needles to say I only sold a few more more trees than needed to cover the cost of the licenses that year, and all my profit went to the state!!! :shock:

I never did buy another license after that!

Leave it to the Grubbermitt to stifle economic development!!! :mad:

I had no desire to be a full blown tree farm, but only to peddle some pines here and there.

I told every customer who bought a tree about the license, and every customer of mine was disgusted with the state and their overreach!

When I need to use my cubs in cold weather, such as pushing snow, I loosen the mounting screws on my grill and slip it back enough to slide in a piece of cardboard big enough to cover about 2/3 of the radiator. No need to worry about fastening it in, the fan will suck it in against the radiator and hold it there.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
