Recently located (and joined) the forum after researching Cubs on the 'net. Tremendous resources on this site.

Back when I was a kid, all the small towns had a cub to mow the various town properties and I spent some time on one... fast forward 35yrs... bought one for my wife for Christmas. :D It's a '52 and it came with a 42" Woods and 23a disc and is in great shape. The previous owner had repaired some things and repainted the old girl - but it isn't a parade restoration. It will come in handy for mowing at the farm.

I've already located a '49 'cause I'm thinking swapping between a mower and a set of mid-mount cultivators could get old.

And yeah, I will probably get another set of diamond earrings for Christmas. :shock:

John:

Yup, the diamond ear-rings should work :lol: Congrats :applause: on acquiring your 1st new to you Cub and possibly the 2nd already. Look at that -- going to be a member of the MCC real soon :D (MCC = Multiple Cub Club). I am sure you bride will get kinda addicted to them as well, most do to some degree :wink:

As soon as the server is back up the links below will be of interest to you. I would recommend that you spend a little time reading the Owner's Manuals for the Cub, the Mower and the Disc. There are many others there as well including a lot of implements that you may find useful at some point from a Cub-193 moldboard plow to a Cub-54 Leveling and Grader Blade to name just a couple. Enjoy the journey, I know many of us sure do :D

Image to Farmallcub.com :big smile: Forum Family. And you have come to the right place for all things Cub related. If you click on the Site Rules, Regulations, & Important Information, it will point you to :arrow: the Welcome Wagon wherein you will find links to many useful sites and topics. One of which is the Cub Manual Server. Enjoy!.

Well, John,
Looks like I'm reading this a little late. Seems a couple of my hosts and some of my friends have already invited you to DSCF. We'd love to have you attend.

Hope to see you in February.
