Cubs On The Loose


For a tractor that was last built thirty years ago the Cub sure shows it's staying power.   In fact many of these are more than sixty years old.  The amazing thing is many of these Cubs are still mowing lawns, plowing gardens, cultivating the crops and much more.


Why do so many people use such antique technology when there is equipment now that will do the same thing four times faster or more?  FOR THE FUN OF IT! That's right!  There is nothing quit like spending a day playing with a Cub.  Some may call it work, but when you have a Cub, the work disappears and you play.  Many owners actually try to find chores to do just so they can play.


Check 'em out.  These big kids know the rules and they play the game well. So get out of the way, we have play to do!

Here is Joe Malinowski with his1966 cub as he drags a white pine that he cut down last fall. It pulled pretty well so he kept taking bigger and bigger logs to see how much it would pull.
