Wheel Horse Vs Cub
Posted December 09, 2012 - 03:54 PM
I'm not into pulling but my tractors do get worked and have moved some very serious dirt. I never ever had a problem with the drive belt on a Wheel Horse and it makes installing an engine a real pleasure. On top of that I like the looks of those tractors and that pretty red paint.

For the cubs slipping clutches in stock form, weak 1 inch axles prone to breakage, rears (ring and pinion) that break easily unless pinned or strapped and their heavy
For the WH's anything less than a 8 pinion is like the cub rear, the cast hubs with just the stock keyway(we full key ours), like the cub clutch a WH will slip the belt unless addressed,
So they both have their problems,
We pull transfer sled,sport stock with 20-30hp engines so we do beat them some. Some weeks the cubs win some the WH's win.
Wh71 if your on 23 tires you will be fine, I'd still swap in a 8 pinion though just for security

If you want shaft drive, how about a power king?

I think you made a wise choice!! All the tricks of the trade(Weighting, Reading the Track and driving skills) are just as important in a Stock Class as in a Full blown modified.. And it will cost a lot less in the long run.
