Hello everyone,
Im new to this forum and thought I would share my cub gt3200 and 10cu dump cart that I purchased late in the fall season. The tractor has a 54" deck and has 2 hrs on it. The cart was assembled and I built sides for it, but never got time to use it. Cant wait till spring so I can Get the beast out and cut some grass. I also have a small fleet of Bolens tractors that I have been inheriting fro family members. Bolens have been in the family forever and I purchased the gt3200 because I thought It was built somewhat like an Old bolens. Enjoy the pics.

well I have thought that over before and to be honest with you the cub will probably see most of the grass duty cuz it does an awesome job and is fast! Also if the cub doesnt get used the fiance might shoot me!!! I bugged her from May to october for a tractor that could handle my 2 acre yard with a steep hill. I was using my red 1050 but it took @ 3 to 4 hrs to mow, and the motor smoked pretty bad, and then the deck came apart (spindle bearings went bad, took out the belt). So I dragged my fiance all over new york searching for a good used machine for @ $1000 and we both learned people cant tell the truth about what they are selling, and I found nothing but junk that needed work all spring, summer, and fall. So I finally talked her into a new machine, and it was a toss up between the cub and a jd x540. I liked both, but the cub seemed better, cuz its shaft driven, heavier built, and much cheapier! After I got the cub my dad decided to give me his 1050 which I quickly restored before winter. So my white 1050 that currently has a blower on it will probably have a deck under it just incase I get the itch to use it here and there, but will mostly be a workhorse to tug around a trailer and do random landscape and yard work. The red 1050 will be getting restored in memory of my grandfather. So thats the plan so far!

Those 3000 series Cub Cadets are nice rigs,I bought a brand new 3235 in 2006.I found they do a really nice job mowing.The power steering was nice as I have a lot of trees to go around.
