Are your tractors used for show or working... show and work
How much Land do you work (Acres)?
What was your first tractor experience (does not have to be a Farmall or Cub) Farmall cub my grandfather gave me when I was 12. I used it to travel everywhere. I think its the only cub with 100000 miles on it.
What is your Cub's primary work.. cut hay and mow grass and push snow
What is the favorite Cub of all which you have owned and why... 1950 demonstrator cub is my favorite because when I got it I knew nothing about demo cubs. I found white paint under the red and researched it. It was a real piece of junk but I had to restore it instead of parting it out.
What first sparked your interest in owning a Cub.. my grandfather was a Farmall dealer in the late 40's through the late 50's. I grew up mowing hay and working on cubs.
What task/use of your Cub provides the most enjoyable seat time...mowing hay with the cutter bar.
Favorite thing you like about Cub's and Cadets... very well built.
Describe your most satisfying or frustrating experience working on your own or someone else's Cub...most satisfying is when I rebuild a cub engine and start it for the first time... most frustrating is when I take someone else's cub engine apart and find mismatching main bearing caps
Do you host or participate in CubFests, Cubarama, Mini-CubFests? How so.... Helped albie put on the very first cub workshop at his home in Harrisvill Pa, Participated in a few cubfest since when able to.
