    Farmall Cub in the barn

    This tiny tractor followed me home so I had to find space in the barn.
    The good:
    Low price and very close to home, looks good at 10', motor runs like a sewing machine, newer rear tires, new battery, retired prior owner had it a very long time
    The bad:
    Brakes are nearly gone, desperately needs new seals, finicky starting, front tires have heavy dry rot

    The clutch was sticky from lack of use but started to free up.

    What was I thinking?

    The P.O. must have hit a tree pretty hard to move the motor that far to the left...



    I think it will be fun to mow with,,,

    That's just beautiful! Reminds me when I was a kid and spent many hours on the same model mowing with a sickle bar.

    And like you say - they sound like a well oiled sewing machine when running.

    It's also such a nice size for a project tractor and to mow with. I wouldn't mind finding one like that in much worse condition and making a project of it.

    Great looking little tractor, Rod330!! I couldn't quite make out the serial number to check the year, but I'm guessing it's an early 50's based on the hood and the mesh "grill".

    Very nice, Rod.

    I'm surprised to see such a wide mower on it. We used to have a cub when I was a kid. We had a single blade 42" (I think) mower on it. I don't think it would have pulled that wide mower.

    One negative about using a cub for a mower is that it will 'push' the tractor forward when you press the clutch to try to stop. ...at least ours did. It didn't have a continuous PTO, nor even an 'over-running' PTO.

    Even with these faults. We loved the cub. Dad finally traded it for a Deere 750.

    Oh man - yes! Looking at that pic brought a memory that I had forgotten about.....

    I don't know, maybe 11-12 years old at the time. I had just mowed a field and was in second gear I think with the sickle bar raised just like in the photo. All of a sudden I found myself on the ground behind the tractor with it running away from me. Here that cross brace that goes to the front of the tractor underneath fell out of its socket, dropped to the ground, and caused the sickle bar itself to fall backward with force. I must have moved my head as it hit me square in the collar bone.

    Jumped up and ran after the tractor to get it stopped. Turned out nothing broken - the brace just came loose. And I knew my collarbone was broken - oh did it hurt but my father would't take me to the doctor. Just work it out kid. I still have a lump on my collarbone today.

    I would love to find one of those cubs for a project. Going to be keeping my eye out now.

    I love those tractors. We had a Super A which is just a little bigger, and then I had a couple of the number series Cub LoBoys. That one looks like a great 'daily driver' with a little work, and set up with a plow and some cultivators it's a gardening dream.

    I believe the serial number is 109568 which makes it a 1950 model. I love your Cub with the sickle bar...very cool and it reminds me of my Dad's Massey Harris Pony with the sickle bar.
