Mowin' agin!!!!

Postby cowboy » Sun Aug 03, 2008 8:31 pm

Well its not the cub but I am mowing again. The 130 back together but its not right yet. Steering gear box needs to be rebuilt. Its three times as loud as the 100 has low power and oil pressure. But I can mow some with it. I have the fasthitch mott mower I got from Clark T on it. It works needs new knives like he said it did. And I really need to figure out how to setup the hitch and bail. I have it all jacked out of shape to make it work but it does. I am pretty sure its that water pipe in front that somone rigged up to hole the front bail. But I will get it right sooner or later. But I got the horse pasture knocked down :D

Big Bill I have the same 14.9x24's you have on this tractor. I put them on 15" wide rims. But if I did it agin I would put it on 12" wide rims. You Can get them from Miller and get the lug locks and weld them on the rim.




Take care of your equipment and it will take care of you. 1964 cub. Farmall 100 and 130.

Good to see you back on. They look like flotation tires on there.

Nice. Those are some seriously wide rear tires there indeed!

Those mott mowers do a good job with tall grass like that.
