Hello from North Carolina

Postby Paul Wells » Wed Jun 13, 2012 2:36 pm

Hello, My name is Paul. I am in the Elkin NC area. I have been around tractors for years but never owned a Farmall cub until recently. My cub is a 1956 model with a fast hitch. It came with an original scrape blade, moldboard plow, and disk, I also have a full set of 144 cultivators for it. This little tractor came from the widow of the PO, I don't know how long he owned it but it looks to be in pretty much original condition, I can see a little yellow paint on some of the lift arms and the scrape blade so I guess they were added later. I wanted a small tractor to cultivate my garden and it works great. I don't plan on painting it any time soon. I look forward to learning more about the Farmall Cub.
Thanks
Paul Wells
