Love the red Cubs !

CR had this 782 with I believe a Sears manual 3 point lift and plow adapted on with an electric actuator unit. I followed it a couple times. The actuator connecting point failed the test, but the rest plowed pretty well, not bad for the man that sold his regular plow tractor just before plow-day ! We talked and decided he needs to convince his wife that he needs some more red Cubs !

attachicon.gifSANY0033.JPG

The bottom mount broke on the actuator, but it was due to a mistake on my part.  I was so busy admiring my furrow I let the front end climb up to the right and put too much  side force against the actuator when I backed up and got square again.   I have a regular sears actuator that will go onto a 682 and get the 782 hydraulics hook to the three point. The whole plow day experience was a learning curve for us.  First time plowing with this tractor and 3 pt,  first plow day also.

First time getting the wife to plow also.  

First time meeting several nice people.  :thumbs:      ( yes Alan that includes you also)   

As for convincing  ​the wife to get more red cubs,,  Everyone feel free to chime in and help,  she usually tunes me out unless I!'m talking about getting her a sewing machine!   Rick

Get her a machine to sew us up some seat covers!

There's always some issues that show up no matter how hard we prepare! I feel fortunate mine were easy fixes!

Kenny, your getting the plow day farther away from me. I need one closer to Maine so I might be able to attend. Hehe. Have to get a passport thou.
Doesn't seem to be anything in my area for garden tractor plow day. We have a plowing match, in August, for antique farm tractors, which I enter into to with my Ferguson tractor. Any way, hope your plow day works out for you.

Take your G.T. along,  plow them a nice straight furrow and show them what they are missing!

So Alan, It appears that Casey is giving instructions on plowing to someone?
