I'm in the market for a tractor to go along with my JD B.
I have 60 acres which I'm starting to farm. 50 acres on one place (Where the B will be), 10 on the other. On the 10 I have three acres of corn and some hay that I put up loose. The 50 acres will be pasture and hay. Rather than keep moving the tractor back and forth I am looking for something to keep up with the 10 acres. I was wondering if the Cub would do the trick?
Here are more specific questions.
1. Would the plow work in the red Alabama clay?
2. Has anyone used the corn cultivator? How does it work?
3. Right now I use a brush hog to mow hay, would the belly mower do the same thing?
4. How reliable and easy to maintain are the cubs (I realize they're a 50 year old machine).
5. Are the only implements I can use with this tractor the ones made by farmall?
6. Is their a PTO conversion for the pulley in the back or is that a bad Idea.
Thank you in advance for responding. I am looking for a small tractor to use on the farm not restore (at least not yet anyway). I've always loved the look of the cub and am trying to find an excuse to get one in my barn.

Need to clarify my statement. I was referring to the belly mount ROTARY MOWERS, not the sickle mower. The sickle mowers are good for cutting hay, but are only found in 4 1/2 foot and 5 foot versions. They also do not have any type of break-away if an obstacle is encountered.John *.?-!.* cub owner wrote:Bachelor, I'll add one note to Rudi's comments. The belly mower for a cub is a good unit, but I do not think it would work good for hay. It turns much faster than a bush hog, and the blade is very close to the deck. It is designed to cut and chop the grass into small pieces.
