I have put bigger ( wider) front tires on the tractor and even put electric power steering from a Nissan car on it. As long as u know the limits of a cub your good. I had to have a pacemaker installed Nov 2020 and that bucket helps. The only thing that is something to think about is that tractor is dedicated to a bucket now and u will need another cub or 2 for everything else. Lol I now have Peter a 1950 with a blade.


Thanks for the update! Glad to hear it's working out well for you. And yes, if you had a pacemaker installed, the FEL would be a big help. Best of health to you and your Cub.

Your right limitations must be respected. I have chains and double wheel weights for the cub. I also swapped out the cylinders and now have down force. We redid the waterproofing and drainage around our house the 3/4” stone I used around the big O pipe was all placed with the bucket. The placing of soil for the landscaping was all done with this tractor. I use the 1950 with blade to level yard and driveway. Next job is the new tractor shed it will have three doors. Guess I should start looking for another cub to cut the field beside my house with. Can’t have a three door tractor shed with only 2 tractors

My loader Cub sure does come in handy. Carrys more than I do , or want to.
It's out of sight of the Kubota with a loader that came home a while back....Not sure how to introduce them now.
The Cub is more fun and doesn't stink like diesel. Just old grease ,l.o.l..

I picked up a number of plastic skids and made forks. Most of what I use it for is moving stuff around and lifting things. I used it to put wheel weight on a cub over the holidays. I use it all of the time. But again I found it much more useful on a larger tractor.

No question it’s better on a larger tractor. I wouldn’t think of trying to pickup that skid of wood with my cub. Three big bags of soil is about my limit I think. Someone said it’s a great wheel barrow and terrible loader. I agree but it’s a cub with a bucket and I think it’s great if my father was alive I’m not sure if he would laugh or think why didn’t I do that

This is another idea for the cub. I reinforced the front axel and put on wider tires. The standard tires tended to sink. I have a lot of flood plain and sandy or mud. The wider tires were a big help. https://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=94076

Good idea I used 13” trailer tires and rims also installed electric steering off a Nissan car. All u need is 12volt source. The Nissan has a fail safe system so it works as if the cars computer has failed and u just get steering as if your driver 35 mph. Works decent

Do you have any pic of the electric steering set up?
