To clean a 150'x15' driveway with snow plows. My 14 has a 46" plow. Not sure what size plow a Cub would have, I don't have one. Any way a 14 is hydro and can move quick, as you Massey guys know, cub is standard shift. Just a fun question, I just finished the driveway, and have been wondering for some time now. I like watching tractors plowing on you tube just to see different things. Noel.

Farmall cub front blade should be 60 inches (i think thats right, as i have one). So that is 3 passes wide, over your current 4 passes (perfect world). Stick shift isnt bad, forward and reverse (if i am remembering right) are opposite each other. Certainly you can put more weight on a farmall cub for the traction. 12 horsepower, but those are using real horses. :)

How fast can a cub go ? Mf 14 is 9 miles per hour, not that a person would plow that fast , but if I had to beat someone I might. Noel.

Yes, I believe you are right Coventry Plumber. I know that they are only about 9 1/2 to 10 hp. Massey ferguson is 14 , real horse power, as was said before. No torque values yet. I think a Kohler 14 would have about 25 foot pound of torque. Don't know about a Cub. Noel.

Farmall Cub is a heavier tractor, can handle a bigger blade and push more snow. Not sure how fast in top gear???

The MF14 is more maneuverable, quicker to go from forward to reverse. MF14s go about 12mph

 

I'd say the Farmall is faster if the driveway is a straight run.

You are correct.  But to be exact the early models were 2.14, 3.12, and 6.4mph while the later models were 2.44, 3.25, and 7.3mph in case anyone wanted to be technical.  LOL!!!

Not sure of the cub's torque.  My Nebraska test book doesn't list it.

I'm not sure on the Cubs torque but it can push a lot of snow for its size . I just wish 2nd gear was a little faster. Besides that it's great tractor to plow with but aren't they all. Not saying I want to plow more this year , I've had enough. Tom
