That is the one John C posted on the forum for sale yesterday. Not all the castings match. It has been put together with parts from other Cubs. The bolster is a 47, the engine is around a 58, etc, etc. Here is his forum ad viewtopic.php?f=28&t=75632

He sold it cheap.....and noted the welds. Still good stuff on that Cub to pick off the carcass.

Yep, this'n looks to have more weld on it than the total inventory of KubKraft during any given month when it was producing accessories. John has had this one advertised several times on the forum and craigslist for the past year. I can click on the link and still see it. I had looked at the ad earlier in the day before it was removed so the images are still in my cookies until I clear it. Here are a few of the pix from the ad.

Boy that SN is really close to Granny's .. Granny is 7710 and it is quite a ways from where ever that bolster is from.

26 hrs 50 mins / 2674.01 kilometres or 1661.55278 miles


Raymond, you need to grab that SN even if it is a parts Cub, there is a record. Maybe you can add a couple fields to your DB - to show the new owner's/locations.

John, is it a local sale, do you know where it is going?

Lots of welds but hey... it does have a nice seat :D

In order to keep the owners name and info private, I do not keep track of locations. This was the policy from when Trent started the database, and it's only right that it stays that way.
I have been keeping the origins of the information I have gathered in case I need to go back to the source to gather more information or ask for claification, but that information (owners and/or data recorder) will not be published or made public.

I have recorded this tractor's SN as it being parted out. If the new owner plans to keep the tractor whole and would like to contact me, I'll change the listing and update it as they like.

Rudi, the tractor will not stay local; however, it is going to a forum member. :)

Tractor didn't look all that bad. I bet those welds will hold up even stronger than before. If I had a tractor with welds that good (bolster), I'd leave it alone! Still alot of good parts on it!
