I'll say this 1st, I never really liked cubs. Kinda because honestly LOL they're yellow and I'm a red bush hog kinda guy.
But yesterday on CL a CC 86 came up locally for $75. Had a mowing deck, ran when parked sorta deal, but for $75, couldn't pass it up. Told the man on the phone I'd buy it and be by at 5:30 since I get out at 5pm. He said that was fine, but in true CL fashion, I call just as I'm ready to leave and the jerk sold it. Said he forgot I was coming.
Fast forward to today, I'm at work, and get the itch to go to the scrap yard which is 2 minutes from work. Walking around I find a Cub 86 with a mowing deck, that I was told was just dropped off.
Looking at photos on CL and this one, I believe it's the same one. Same tape on the seat, tires look right, etc. I asked how much, was told $100 and said, sure why not.
Here she is, the CC 86 sitting at work in the shop.
Engine turns over by hand, and tries to turn over with the key turned. Seems to have been sitting for a while, the mowing deck moves, but needs the leaves, crud and just needs general attention.
over all for $100, so far I'm happy!
