Thanks everybody for the kind words. Please subscribe if you like our videos. The Cub is a central part of our farm and we enjoy making YouTube videos about her!

Nice video. I'm assuming the fasthitch was included in the $1000 price you paid for everything. You did really, really great on your purchase.

I thought he said the package was $2,000.

When you consider the value of the fasthitch and implements that works out to an almost free tractor.

Great video with a good explanation of why a Cub is still handier than a pocket on a shirt.

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

Very nice video.

The Cub's horse power was initially rated on the drawbar and not the engine.
I have an excuse. CRS.

He probably did, I would have to watch it again. I guess my hearing isn't what it used to be. :surrender:

just thinking the drawbar horsepower was about 10 iirc? I think the engine HP was 13? Can someone say for sure? Still, and excellent video!
