I got to thinking about this yesterday after I posted pictures of the one Cub that we actually use. It cuts grass, plows/blow snow, drags a wagon around, and basically get used as a GT was intended.
We have quite a few restored cubs that we have done over the last probably 15 years. These have been restored down to sand blasting and painting the underside of the decks. They honestly look like they came out of the show room. They have not touched a blade of grass and done nothing but sit in the shed, most of them haven't seen sunlight since they were done. The only one that gets moved is the Original and only because my Dad likes to ride around town on it and take little girl for tractor rides.
Do you use your restored tractors? Or are they garage/shed queens?
