Farmall Cub Friends

 This two Arkansas Farmall Cub friends came by and bought a few pieces of equipment for this Cub.
 They bought the Farmall Cub in Oklahoma City.  The motor is locked up but hopefully they can get it unstuck and going again.
 It surely looked straight.  Hope it all turns out like they hope it does!

Farmall Tractor Rescue

You have heard of dog rescues?   Well, I think I have a Farmall Tractor Rescue!  I have them stuffed under every shed and they are busting out!

Farmall Cub Rescue

Found this Farmall Cub in pretty bad shape but I brought it home to save it from becoming scrape metal.  Lots of the parts on these can be used again.

Farmall Cub

I bought this Farmall Cub near Drasco, AR.   Like a lot of the Cubs I buy, the owner had passed away.  He was a mechanic and took really good care of this tractor.  I still own it today.

Hilling Corn with a 1953 Farmall Cub

 First we put pure nitrogen along the corn rolls and tilled it in.  Then we used the Farmall cub to throw the dirt toward the corn.
 This is called hilling the corn!  It should really turn dark green now and grow tall.

 This is the 1953 Farmall Cub I used to hill the corn.  An old man in Tennessee had it for years.  He retired and move to OK--Coweta.  He never used the Cub and equipment after he moved it and a few years back I bought it from him.  It surely is a good tractor.  I like the way it looks--straight but work worn.  I don't want to restore it!  I think it neat looking the way it is!  I guess her name could be Juanita from Coweta!

1972 Farmall Cub with Belly Mower

This 1972 Farmall Cub shows how the belly mower works.  It is slow but does a fantastic job.  I guess one would say, "slow but sure".  The zero turn mowers replaced this old way of mowing.  Once every older man with a large area to mow wanted the Farmall Cub with a belly mower, now they dream of a "Bad Boy" instead.  Just as land lines have been replaced with Iphones--the belly mower is an old timers memory!  I still love it!

Farmall Cub Slicing Grass

 This is my new 1972 Farmall yellow Cub mowing in Galla Meadow!   It does a great job.  At one time golf courses, universities, any business with a big lawn would have a Farmall Cub to mow the grass.  It is a slow go, but does a great chore.  Zero turns was their obituary, but a few of us old timers still love the little work horse.

New Yellow Farmall Cub

 I bought this Farmall Cub near Waldron, AR from Robert Handley.  It has been in his family all it's live.  It was purchased at Clarksville by his Uncle John Henry Ross.  I am calling this one John Henry and I think it is a keeper.

This video shows me taking John around to the shed!  All the Cub has ever done mow grass.  I plan to try it out in Galla Creek Meadow to see just how well it can mow!  The Farmall Cub came with it's original documents!  That is rare.

I sold this 1947 Farmall Cub today to a fellow from OK.  He took home some cultivators and is going to use it in the garden.

Farmall Cub Wheel Weights

A Farmall Cub is a very light tractor.  Lots of folks add front and back wheel weights.

Farmall Cub Serial Numbers

Each Farmall Cub has a number on a plate on the tractors.  With this number, you can find out what year the treactor is.  The first number was 501.

Laying Off Rows With Farmall Cub

 It is really easy to get equal distant rows when you have a Farmall Cub.
 You place the plow in the previous row each time and the rows are all equal.
 This way you add one new row each time.  If you don't want to lay off entire garden, just leave an empty row to put the plow in for the next lay off.

Farmall Cub Wheel

 There is a lot of work to restoring a tractor.  This just shows one wheel of a Cub I restored.  Huge amount of labor goes into it.

Priming The Oil Pump In a Farmall Cub

This Cub had sat so long the oil pump had to be primed.  I got it running but the oil was not pumping.  Fixed it like this!

Farmall Cub

This is another picture of the Farmall Cub I owned in 1980.  I can honestly say I have forgotten where I bought it or who I sold it to!

Farmall Cub with Belly Mower

 I bought this Farmall Cub from Toad Suck, AR.  It is a 1947 model with a serial number of 2098.  The first Cub was number 501 so this one was the 1597th Farmall Cub ever manufactured!!   Still singing, too!!

From Belly Mower To Zero Turns!

From land lines
to cell phones
and belly mowers
to zero turns!
Times they are a-changin'
I owned the above Farmall Cub in 1980.  Lots of folks used them to mow, but there is not a big market for mowers today.  Most folks have zero turn mowers and can talk on the cell phone as they zip through the yard!
 I bought this Farmall Cub last year at Marcella, AR.  It has a history!   I named her Marcella.  She was once owned by Louisiana State University.  She was born about 1951 or 52.  Colleges used these tractors to mow grass.  I am sure that is what Marcella did on the campus there.  Mike (guy I got her from) had the books from the school.
 Even I mow my 5 acres with a zero turn.  Mine is a Bad Boy.
