Hey guys,

Had this 1952 Farmall Cub given to me today by an older lady whose husband died a few years ago. It has been sitting outside for a few years and doesn't run right now so it may be an adventure but I'm not going to complain considering that it was free lol.

Look like the metal is straight and is a 100%
complete. Plus a belly mower! You made out
very well.

Without a doubt you paid too much for it. I will give you twice what you paid for it sight unseen!  :smilewink:

I think it will be to much of a job for you to get running ! SO send me your address and I will come get it and get it running. I will not sell it, but you can come by and drive it after I get it running.     LOL     Nice deal. Has a Woods mower also. Take care in getting it running and let us see how you did it. Good luck. Looking forward to the progress on it.                                                                                                          Roger.

Very nice!  That is a great freebie.  You were in the right place that time!

 

I love the red Cubs.  They are smooth little tractors when they are adjusted right. 

 

Without a doubt you paid too much for it. I will give you twice what you paid for it sight unseen!  :smilewink:

 

I'll bid three times what he paid for it.  :poke:

I forgot to mention.  I do sell antique tractor parts, and I can beat almost anyone's prices on most of my parts.  If you need something, I think I can save you some money.

  Ben how do you save money on free?? :D  Cant get much cheaper than that can you.  Very nice score for free, I like those old cubs.  I have a few friend with them and I am always over helping them out keeping the cubs going, nice steady dependable machines.

Hey, that looks like the one i get to use at work only it has the sickle bar and yours has the mow deck, it looks like a Woods 72 '' deck, sweet tractor :thumbs:

 

That's America's ''compact'' tractors, started life as a cultivator/utility tractor but was so poplular Farmall continued the line, i want to say there are more options for attachments for the Cub then any of the other tractor MFG, including JD and AC.

 

Finicky up draft carb and harder then heck to start in the cold but when everything is right it will always run and work all day, those old L head engines last and most parts are still everyweres and cheap seeing as the Cubs were make in the millions.

 

We had the JD model M, a bit bigger then the cub, but same design type, i have been pestering Eddie to sell me his Cub but he will never sell it, never know, i might pop up some day with one.
