Cub hydraulics

Postby sparks1 » Fri Jan 03, 2020 5:18 pm

I am looking at pics of a Cub for sale. The hydraulics do not appear to be original. Opinions, before I go look at it? Has belly mower, front plow , sickle mower, one bottom plow. Also has saw arbor/belt/and blade> whatever he means by that.

No, not original. Breather pipe is not original, either. :lol:

Probably parts to a cord wood saw.

If it's not to far of a distance and a reasonable asking price - - go look at it.

No reply to my inquiry as of yet. Forgot to mention it has some sort of rig to haul barrels of scrap iron. I assume the hydraulics are for that also.
It is a couple hours from me, worth the drive to have a lookeyloo.

High priced I think.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

NO.

Probably a scavenger hunt to find the on hand parts in the less than well arranged storage.

Thanks for the Craigslist link Eugene, It had more pictures.
I just talked to him via phone. Seems he drove it to town last fall to wash it and drove it home. (3 miles) After sitting it had a coffee can size puddle of oil on the belly mower, which he did not see before for all the grass clippings. He described the hydraulics a "live" and that the gentleman he got it from claims the cubs had the cutout in the hood for a pump there intentionally. Push in the clutch and hydraulics still work.
According to him, it runs well, no clutch or brake problems...starts right up. The oil leak troubles me though, rear seal?
Any way, thanks for your input. I am looking for my first Cub and appreciate the knowledge offered here.
He will be sending me pictures of plow and other stuff.

Don't believe that, IH never put a cut out in the hood of a Cub. That was cut by a previous owner to add the hydraulic (power steering) pump. That pump is not factory.

From our conversation, I take it he is totalling up all the parts and the tractor for his price.

If cubs in that condition are going for $2K in Minnesota I will rent a car carrier for Philidelphia and have a truck sale out there.

I do not know cub prices in Minnesota, and I am not opposed to that hydraulics set up, but he is not showing alot of what is listed. front blade
one bottom plow (garden plow),Belt pully, saw arbor and belt Hoist bracket, The saw is not worth much without the table for it. For that he is not even really showing you the woods finish mower with 12" of snow on it. I would not drive for a few hours to look at that for $2K.

I got close to that package no saw or hoist but grader blade, c-22 with extra blades and parts, woods 42, and wheel weights for $700 45 min for home.

Keep looking

Okay then. Only if I get first pick. :D

$2k seems to be the going rate for most all Cubs regardless of condition and implements.

$2,000 may be the asking price, there are too many Cubs out there for them to be bringing that much, unless they have a lot of equipment with them and are in pristine condition. If you buy one that needs work for $300-$700 and it needs tires, engine work, paint, etc. you’ll have way more than $2,000 in it when your done. Don’t ask how I know. If someone gets $2,000 out of a Cub they probably have $4,000 in it.

Barnyard's right, this isn't factory made.

I think there has to be something closer to you. Near Me I have found a lot of good deals on facebook marketplace more so than Craiglist. I do check both but seem to do better on facebook. I found a number of deals close to home or work.

I only check in my area out 20-30 miles usually and do not check the other parts of the country so I do not know your market.
