Always amazed at what they can pull. They can not stop much but they can pull.
When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!

Where does the post say that is a new cut? Since his location is given as NE Ohio it would appear to be a movement of hay. Vern

This comment reminded me that about 50 years ago, on New Years Day, I helped bale hay! Disclaimer: The hay was broken bales that we forked down, re-baled and re-mowed.)

Lol, no hay making this year yet!

It is first cutting, from 2021 though.

No big hills for my trip. Going down the grade from where the pic was takin to the road, then all up grade on the road and into the barn where the hay will be used.

Sam, you know the abilities of your Cub and conditions. Glad you got it to the barn safely.

But… I wouldn’t recommend this set up for a newby who has no idea a Cub’s brakes are the weak link in the system. Add a slightly steeper slope on someone else’s farm, and this set up could become “an accident waiting for a place to happen.”

Again, glad it worked out for you. Cubs are a BEAR for work!

It is nice to see Cubs working, I know I enjoy mine everytime I get to move some snow or dirt with my belly mounted blade.
