Hello all,
I am new to this site, I have a 1976 yellow cub that I bought new from my brother in Ohio . He was a IH dealer at that time, I grow up in a IH dealership that my father had. He always had a demonstrater on hand so I learned to plow gardens with a new White demonstrater in 1950. I was only 12 at the time so my father supervised me the first year then I got to do it all by myself.
Dad always had a new cub each spring for me to plow gardens with, in the summer we had a sickle bar mower to mow the back yards and a few pastures also. ( The circular blade mowers were not very popular at that time, they came out a few years later) . In the winters we had a blade and a heathouser so that I could plow snow.
I had a 55 cub that I used untill I got the 76 cub. I have a plow,5 ft. double disc, cultivators,blade with the grader bar,and a buz saw.
I lived in Northern Ohio until I retired, and I moved to north West Oklahoma, I live in a small rural town and injoy living in this area , I do a little house remolding , walk the dogs and we do some camping.

Don, welcome to the forum. There are a few members in Oklahoma, I think Arthur Luke and Bill E Bob might be the closest active members but they are over three hours away from you.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
