Plowin' with the cub

Postby Scott C » Mon Apr 19, 2004 8:28 pm

Good cub day. A buddy of mine and me went down the road to turn a garden for a friend he takes care of. Just put the plow on the cub and never used it, sweet!

Scott,

That looks great! Got to get me one of them plows. I'm tired of plowing snow, going to switch to dirt. :D

The pictures got a lot better after I cleaned the lense :roll: .

I've got to spread the front axle so I ride in the furrow straight. When the front wheel is against the furrow wall, the rear is at the outside of the furrow. Not bad, but not right.
I was impressed with being able to plow in second also.
I like this!

Donny,
Yes you do.
I really like plowing with a cub cadet but the cub just makes it that much more effortless.

Our site: http://ihregistry.net/cgi-bin/discus/di ... ?pg=topics
is having our plow day this weekend in Dubois, PA on Saturday and the local group is having their plow day on Sunday with big tractors. The IH Registry and PPMA (Past and Present Machinery Association) got together last year and it's just exploded.
Anyone who wants to come is welcome, plow or not, tractor or no. You don't have one, chances are you'll be on one before the day is over, that's the kind of people that are there.
I'd be watching one of the Ag magazines in the future for something on the plow day's (just a guess). The local news is going to be there and the papers. I don't know how many old tractors are registered but we have over 100 cub cadets and 130 operators as of yesterday. Looks like it's gonna be fun.

I would suggest that rather than widening the front, you set the rear in. The recommended setting is 44". In the pictures, it looks like you were taking a pretty wide cut. It clearly worked OK there, but in other conditions you may need to take a little less each time.

Jim,
I'm afraid you're right.
Now that I think about it, if I widen the front, yes, it will move the rear tires closer to the furrow wall but it would also move the plow further out making an even wider cut. I just like it wide, it makes me feel better on some of the hills around here.
Decisions... decisions.... Ahaaaa! I need another cub set narrow so I can keep this one wide!

What plow was used in the pics. Single blade IH? Been looking to buy one. Had a chance to buy one 5 years ago but turned it down... Should have bought it.

Dave,
That is a 193 plow (IH).

Well, I am loaded for our plow days in PA. Pulled the cubs up from WV to our house (for 4 more days anyhow) in PA. From what I saw last year and if I had to guess for this year, Cub Cadets should get in at least 30 acres, antique tractors 50 to 80 acres.
Can't wait!

I am going to try something here.
Here is the link to the pictures I have uploaded to Picturetrail....
http://www.picturetrail.com/farmallcub
It's not organized into any kind of reason but all the old literature scans and stuff I've posted are there.
I try to remember to uncheck the little box that prevents "right click to save" if you find I've missed one and you want to save it, let me know and I'll change it. Feel free to save anything that is there.

You have to load the picture into the viewer to be able to save it.

Scott,

I agree it would be better to set the rear wheels in. Nobody seemed to notice that, like me, you are plowing without weights. Do you have loaded tires? I don't, but my garden is very sandy and contains a lot of organics. I also use the early plow with the long land side. I plow as deep as it will go.

:D It would seem to me that you would only have to move in the tire that rides in the furrow in. You could leave the drivers side tire out. And change it back when done plowing. :idea:
