I have a question about the cultivators on the early cub in photo #92. The cross bar that's hanging from the standard tool bars, Was that one piece bar an option or home made? I haven't seen one like this before and couldn't find it in the manual. Mine has the 2 pieces and I think this bar would be better to hang the hiller disc from.


I have added the picture to this thread to make it a bit easier to look up. This tractor belongs to one my co-hosts, Tim Ezell, who is standing by the tractor in the tan shirt. Can some of you cultivator experts chime in about the bar in the picture, please.

Two questions: Why all that firewood, in "Sunny Florida"? Thats more than I use, all winter. And why "Green" tractors, at a cubfest? (Sorry, I come from e red, vs green, battleground). Ed

Me too Ed. Dad's family was all IH and Mom's was JD. In real life they were like the Hatfields and McCoys. (True story).

Well, Ed, on the firewood. We had a storm come through here and take out a few trees, Hence, the firewood.


And on the tractors, I will quote my good friend, Bigdog. "I never met an old tractor I didn't like"

First, let me say I am not a cultivator expert by any means.

I also looked in my manual and I cannot find the tool bar. I am positive that it came with the 144 cultivators. It is not homemade. I have seen them on Ebay for sale but could not find one today.

The thing about looking at them later is I see some of the many new members that I know I met, but I also see a lot of folks I don't think I met. A guy can really get busy at a CubFest.

Speaking of busy, Billy Ray is either taking a phone in order for lunch or he's calling the shop to tell Raymond how to install a bearing.

Billy Ray was probably calling me. :{_}: I was bringing the bread for the Kelley Sausage he was cooking and I was running a few mintues late.

That Billy Ray really pops a whip!! :lol: :lol:

The solid bar that runs between the mounting frames is not originally an option for the Cub-144 cultivators. It serves the same purpose as the horse shoe shaped lay off bar for mounting tools. The straight solid bar is from another model tractor, although I dont know the exact one.
