I hate to demonstrate my ignorance, but what does the term "numbered Cub" mean? I have seen reference to it on several posts. Thanks.
Since retirement, the things I miss most are the holidays!
Those are Cubs whose days are numbered and are destined to be parted out.
No, I'm only kidding, it refers to the Lo-Boys such as the 154, 185 etc.
Sea salt is healthier only because it gets stuck in the holes of the shaker and you can't actually put it on your food.

Cadets, on steroids, I call them. I hope the 184 can plow snow. I'm planning that job, for mine, some day. Ed

I read the forum every day without fail, as it is a great learning tool. Also some of the very witty replys give me a chuckle, especially from that Barnyard guy Nothing to beat a bit of humour or a wee laugh now and again it lifts the spirit
Cadet on steroids is a good answer! The one good thing about them is they have a higher HP Cub engine (not sure all of them do).
A Lo Boy is just a Cub with the finals tweaked forward and short front spindles....... despite what some people think, they are harder to get on and off than a Cub. And smaller than a flag!

They do have a few interesting features that the Cub does not:
1. Live PTO. This is achieved by using pulleys located between the flywheel and clutch to belt-drive a jackshaft to the PTO in back. When the belts go, the tractor needs to be split to replace them.
2. Available creeper gear. This allows the tractor to operate a snowblower or rototiller where an offset Cub cannot.
They have starter-generators like Cub Cadets too. The generator is also the starter.
Not I said "interesting features" not "improvements." While they're interesting features, they are also those so-called "weak points" that people always ask about when looking at tractors.
YEP! I've called them that too.
