Nice tractor. I just got my Cub 107 running and you will love it; they are great tractors. Seems like a good price for a running tractor that is that complete and straight. Does the deck work? Mine is all there but seized; just wondering if anyone has cut with these. If they cut good I might fix up my deck and use it as my mower too.

Congrats on finding a more economically suitable situation for your first.
The Cub looks nice. Any issues that you've found?

I love the style of that series.

 

$200 for a running Cub would sell fast around here, so I think you did fine.  The hydros never bring what a gear drive does just because the pullers can't abuse a hydro like they can a gear!

Runs a little rough that gas smells old and carb probably needs cleaning

I'm scared to use it until the deck is welded it up it full of rust holes,

Yes, you can plow or whatever with this tractor! These were tough tractors back when! Give it some TLC and it'll be good as new!

A hydro is great in the garden.  All I was implying was that the tractor pullers can juice up a hydro to run the wheels faster like they can a gear drive and live to tell about it.  The hydros can still pull just as well as a gear drive, and certainly do ground engaging work. 

 

You'd love a hydro with a tiller.  It is infinitely better than tilling with a gear drive.

It has to be better then trying to till 1/2 acre with a front tiller.

That has to be like trying to chase a cat across the yard.  Its always jumping ahead, never knowing which way it will go.

 

Did you get a tiller with your tractor?

I use a 129 to mow with and I think it mows just as good as any other mower I've had. Just keep the blades sharp and keep things greased and it should be good. I personally wish I had a smaller deck for mine but then again if I ever found one I would never buy it anyways lol. As for pulling things I've never plowed or anything but I have dragged my 140 around and it man handled that
