Request for a photo.

Tim I would be happy to forward a photo to you of the Cub in a horse trailer, However I have no idea how to do it. My trailer is a standard 2 horse slant load steel trailer with a dressing room partition that folds back. The trailer is rated at I believe 7000 lbs and has a very good brake set up. The Cub does not come close to filling the trailer and it tows as if it were empty. I was thinking of buying a duel axel trailer to haul the Cub and thought heck it will fit in there perfect and it does. It also is handy for hauling kids and their junk to and from college. By the way your Cub is sure a nice looking tractor. Always remember " A man and his tractor is a beautiful thing" Don in NW Wisconsin

you might want to put the money on renting a trailer towards the purchase of one, that way you'll have a way to get her to all those tractor shows and cub/fest. just my 3 cents.

Well, this one's not gonna cost much. I calculated with the dimentions I found online, along with the measured dimentions from the seller (which seems to be accurate), that this trailer will do the job nicely:

Now I'm going to only clear by no more than 7" in any direction, but it should do fine. I called U-Haul, and they claim that the "tailgate" will support the Cub to drive on and off.

Today I have to call around and see who has this one.

Do you guys remember "Virgin Andy"? He bought Paul Bell's FCUB. The one without hydralics. Well anyways, he used this exact trailer to tow his cub to Cubarama year before last. It's a very nice trailer. It will serve your purpose well.

Have fun !

Well now I feel pretty confident! Thanks! :D

Apparently it measures out with the plow at 106", so I'm juuuuust gonna squeak it in. Don't mind taking the plow off if I have to, but I want to avoid doing that in their driveway fighting the bolts through a fresh coat of paint :shock:

Ah well, tomorrow's the day! I'm excited, and so are my tractor-crazy boys! (7 and 4)

Here's a shot of them in front of a Cub that's used to cut grass, but also is used as a display in front of an ice cream shop. They have a Farmall C, an Allis Chalmers B, a McCormick Standard, and a John Deere of some kind.

It's a favorite stop :)

Whatever happened to Serious Tim?

Postby Serious Tim » Wed Aug 22, 2007 6:44 am

The evening before I went to pick her up, out of a clear blue sky my marriage fell apart. It's been a very hard couple weeks, but in the end my wife and I are in love and more dedicated to each other than we have ever been. I thank the Lord for what we have together, and she now realizes that the man of her dreams, is who she had all along.

I'll start off another thread to tell you the tale of my Cub, ask a few questions, and share a few pictures......just wanted to let you all know that I'm back, and I'm very glad to be here :)

Tim:

Sometimes the best marriages have to go through a bit of their own personal Niagara Falls -- on more than one level -- to become what you both wish it to be. Sometimes it is the little stuff that gets you -- very rarely is it the big stuff.

However, when two people who love each other, talke honestly with each other.. and with love... then they usually can resolve their differences.. and the marriage ends up 100 times better than it was.

You are in our prayers... we do hope that you both are able to work it all out and continue to be blessed with not only a good marriage but a superb, outstanding one, based on love, respect and sharing. Peace to you both (+)
