Our 1955 Cub and 1919 Dad - Planting Corn

Postby PVF1799 » Sat Jul 20, 2013 7:45 pm

Hi all - we finally got out corn and potatoes in. Yup, know it's late but it had to be done. Kristin and Tucker got some seat time in this field also.

Hope you enjoy the video. I was unclear what board this belonged under - please let me know and I'll repost if it should be moved.

Very nice family affair. I can hear the kernels popping around the seed plate. 8)

Cool, I would ;like to see a pic of how the Countershaft tightening bracket is attached.
It appears different than my fast hitch one.
Thanks Boss

Nice video. Dad looks like he is having a great time in the seat of the cub. :lol:


@ Boss - I've seen lots of people that planted with cubs just following the tire marks. Down South, I'm used to seeing people running sweeps behind the rear tires to "plow out the tire tracks". Is this just a regional thing???

Boss, I'll get up there today to get some shots. I can tell you that we had not read this yet http://www.farmallcub.com/[ Sorry, direct links to manual section is not allowed. ]/download.php?fname=./files/Cub%20Attachments/Planters-Fertilizer/International%20Cub%20Fertilizer%20Unit%20(Cub-101A).pdf on page 2, illustration 23A, so we ended up taking the fast hitch height adjuster off. I'll need to make a headless stud today as we've never had one as called for. I should mention this was the first time we put this on the 55. The 48 is not in shape just yet for planting :D

Most will use the cultivators while planting. And about all use the back feet to break up the soil so it does not get compacted. When I was letting folks plant corn here I took the back feet off as to allow less experienced people plant corn. It is easier for some to follow the tire tracks as they have trouble following the furrow made bu the sweeps.
When they learn more about farming they will use the back feet :wink:

Ken,

Great video of Dad doing his thing! I think you may have one of the 1955 Cubs with the No-Holes Hood. You may want to check out Barnyard's web site http://www.savethecub.com/ for more information. If you do, in fact, have a No-Holes Hood, Barnyard would appreciate adding your information to his data.

Bill, I've just reviewed the video and sure enough there are no holes on the right side. I'll pull the information off my phone when I get to NJ later today and send it to Barnyard. Thanks for sharing.

Awesome! Your dad is surely a natural, but then again he knows more about running a Cub than I do!

Thanks for posting the video.
