Postby 57j2olds » Tue Jul 30, 2019 1:05 pm


Can you please tell me the max weight I can pull with my 1953 Cub? I am thinking about getting a hay wagon.

It’s not how much you can pull, it’s how much you can stop.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Yup what Bill said. Also how steep the incline going up. Ground type and condition. Tractor condition.

The Cub in good condition, will easily pull it's own weigh and more on level ground. However, the tractor brakes are considerably less than the best.
I have an excuse. CRS.

You can pull why more than you can stop.

I picked up a hay wagon that I do not think is safe for a cub if it were loaded but I plan to use it as a platform to trim trees on level ground. For "work" I have an ATV trailer and an International 5 tilt-bed trailer. viewtopic.php?f=1&t=103195&hilit=IH+trailer

There are a number of posts about member building small hay wagons for the cub. I personally I not found one for sale that does not need a bigger tractor.
When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!
