What does an Amish guy need a Cub implement for? :? :?:

Maybe to make and sell to the Englishman?


You would be surprised, He and two of his brothers each own a Cub and drive them to work. He wanted a platform carrier to make a way to give his kids a ride. Their father hosted a modified garden tractor pull this summer. I sold them a CC transmission that they were going to make new gears for, I told them about Midwest Super Cub that makes gear sets for over and under drives and they purchased what they needed. According to their dad, "these kids need to have a hobby." Modified garden tractor pulling might just be it, :(

Bill[/quote] bit I thought modern mechanization or power rides were against their religion or beliefs? I'm not judging I am fascinated , amazed and admire them. The Mennonites are mentioned but around here (we don't have Amish) we have a good bit of Mennonites and they drive live in normal houses with power own business etc, just up the road there is a huge fan shop they make trailers and fireplace accessories and use to own a wood stove line till they sold it a few years ago to family in Canada, and their relatives across the highway have a big countertop business. They are just like all the rest of us but the girls and wives dress like little house on the prairie. The men look just like me or any other guy in a trade or farming etc.

Not meaning to break from the topic, but Amish and Cubs have come up before. Didn’t I see a Cub with steel wheels with cleats instead of rubber tires on this forum years ago?

Sharp looking carrier!

There is a number of Mennonite and Amish (Anabaptists) communities near me in Lancaster County PA. Some of the Mennonite do use more technology ( cell phone and drive and have electricity) the Amish are more " plain". They both tend to be very successful business people and farmers in the area. Some of the more conservative Mennonites use steel wheels from my understanding mostly to discourage use of the tractor for transportation. So they can farm and work with technology but not use it in other parts of their life - not sure where tractor pulls would fall.

What are the actual measurements of the stake pockets?

I just went out and measured -- 1 5/8" X 3". I know this is an unmolested carrier, so I'm confident in those measurements.

I am putting my money on Bill and gonna say those are inside measurements. Only because those are the numbers that count.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

My carrier is a looks-like copy. So no point measuring it. I thought they were sized for a 2x4 to fit. Maybe they were sized so a 2x4 could be trimmed in one direction and it would fit without falling through.

Change the subject a little,does any one have a design of pattern for a platform carrier- box to mount on a standard draw bar? I think that might be a handy piece of equipment.

Thought about building a box with cleats that match the drawbar/sit down on the draw bar to keep the box from slipping. Use the implement mounting holes in torque tube to suspend/hold up the front of the box.

Box long enough for metal T fence posts and able to hold chain saws, etc..

Bought a JD Gator instead.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Thanks Bill!

I can agree with that after checking mine out today.

The left one the weld has been broke, rewelded and broken again, and It looks like it was drug down the road and worn away some on the bottom.

The right side is a bit mangled too!

Good choice with the white oak. Holds up well over time in the weather but a penetrating oil-based sealer will help preserve it.
