Hi all, been creepin here a while. Just thought I'd say hi, and give a warm thanks to all who contribute here!

I picked up a really decent 1950 Cub recently, and love it. It takes me back to when I was a kid and my Dad and I had an "A".

This one's numbers put it in the Demonstrator period, but I see absolutely no signs of it ever wearing White.

Nicely equipped with belly Touch Control grader, PTO, and Wagner loader with hydro-dump manure bucket.

Funny, I replaced both front tires (sadly HAD to). They were undoubtedly originals, and I was the FIRST guy into one of them, judging by
no patches on the original Firestone tube! the other one was all original too, but it had one patch, pretty amazing what this country was capable of.

Let the addiction begin…….these tractors have a mystical power we have not quite realize.
The quality and dependable are beyond words to describe and you will be the next caretaker for this tractor until the next generation takes the reigns. Enjoy the time now because it will go by so fast!

Welcome to the Forum, Stove! Any sign of white paint on your '50 Cub? You might check to see if there's any white paint under the seating platform or under the hood. The common serial range is #99536-106511.

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 for maintenance and understanding your Cub) and any service manuals that interest you. Implement Manuals are also available.

Might also enjoy reading through this thread: What to do with a Cub you just brought home

There are a lot of good threads dealing with Cub repair and maintenance in the How To Forum. Located here: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=11

We’d encourage you to take the Safety Test located in the Safety Forum: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=68084

Take some pictures of your tractor 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.

Welcome to the group. Plenty of knowledge can be found here.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.
