I am new to the forum, and think it is just what I need for my problem. I have 22 cubs, and some oddballs. I have restored and unrestored cubs, and love every one, no matter how pathetic they may look. Somtimes the hunt is the most enjoyable part of this addiction. I get to visit with and haggle over price with complete strangers. Some of these people are knowlegable and want to talk, and sometimes they want me to hurry up and give them their money so I can load up the piece of junk and get going.
I got my first cub when I bought an acerage and they had a 147 in the garage. We put the 147 in the bid for $1.00. We got it, and I used it to mow the yard, the pasture, pull a harrow, and snowblow. I was hooked and began the search for more. I now have 4 Originals,70,100, 71,102,122,(2)123,105,106,107,(2)127,(2)147,109,128,1200,1650
Thanks for letting me ramble.

:welcome: to the GTTalk and the addiction.

As I can tell, you have already figured out that there is no cure, and the only treatment is to buy more or look at what others have bought. :D

Speaking of which, :wewantpics: :laughingteeth:

Thanks for joining, any questions, please ask.

Thanks. I am looking for an easy way to set up a protable paint booth that won't take to much room and can be vented with a fan. Anybody have ideas for such a thing?

Welcome to GTT! And thanks for the great pics! Sure wish I had the room to store tractors that you have! I'm a red tractor guy these days, but have owned a Cub 70, and two 106. Great tractors!

What red tractors, IH? I collect the toy IH, don't have room for big ones because of all of the cubs! I have a stock trailer and flatbed trailer that have to sit outside also.

My oddballs are a Ride King, Jacobsen, Wheel Horse, and a couple of John Deere. Just missed out on a Massey Ferguson at an Auction a few years back. I love the history of all the different tractor brands. Good luck on the Bush Hogs!

Are you uploading the picture from a link (photo editing program) or straight from your computer?
