Another tinkerer..

Postby sdurnal » Thu May 06, 2010 2:07 pm

Hi from central Indiana. I tinker with about anything with an engine on it, and have many success stories. I'm a former service manager/service trainer for a major farm machinery manufacturer. (still working in the field, however) Just picked up a Cub Lo-Boy from a relative, and am getting familiar with the series. I just love the older stuff. I'll have some questions soon, and would appreciate any assistance you could offer. (attachments/options, etc)
Best Regards,
Stan

P.S. I'm into Cub Cadets too.

Stan, welcome to the forum. You will meet a lot of great folks with Cubs on their minds here. I'm sure you will enjoy the site.

You are about an hour and a half away from me. I am located near Harrison Ohio. In two weeks I will be hosting the Barnyard Bash. That is a Cubfest where many of the folks from this forum will be getting together for a weekend of Cub Camaraderie. The dates are May 21 and 22. Feel free to stop in and meet many new friends and learn more about your Cub, in fact, bring your Cub along. Feel free to contact me for more info if you are interested, you'll be glad you did.

For more about the Barnyard Bash go here, http://www.barnyardbash.com

Thanks for the welcome! I drive by Harrison on my way to Wright-Pat to see the grandkids. (Son in law is in the Air Force)
Lots of stuff I haven't figured out about the quick hitch, and the 3 spindle mower deck yet, but gaining ground.. Thanks in advance..
Regards,
Stan

Stan, we have about forty people planning to be here so far (that includes wives who come along). You will learn a lot from these guys, so why not plan on stopping in and get to know your Cub better. I'm willing to bet you leave here with a lot of questions answered.
