Re: Waking up the ol' Cub

Well, it's been right at a year since the Missus suggest I get her Grandaddy's old Cub running instead of buying a used Kubota or similar. I haven't done much on it over the summer as the shop gets awful hot and welding in shorts, t-shirt and flip flops can put you to dancin'. But I've been using it every time I think of something I can do with it.

It's not smoking near as much now and feels like it's got a lot more power than what it did when I first got it going. I'm still wanting to put some kind of a mower deck on it. I got a start on a small boom pole for it. And I found the tub for an old wheel barrow out in the barn which is probably going to be made to use with the 3 point hitch. The cargo rack pretty much stays on the Cub these days as it seems to be what I use the most with it.

The 3 point hitch got weight tested when I overloaded the trailer and the Touch Control wouldn't lift the tongue up. So, I know that the hitch is strong enough for anything the hydraulics can lift. The more I use it, the more comfortable I am about it's holding up. My wife's uncle saw it for the first time yesterday and said "That's looks to be handier than a pocket on a shirt". He thought the hitch was store bought.

Now that it's cooling off, time to get back into the shop...

Nah, it's not leaking oil. It's just marking it's territory.
