Tonight was my first test drive of my Cub Cadet 149. I've had this tractor since Jan. 2016. For the past 5 months I have been busy refurbishing it. (You can see the story of this project at http://gardentractor...ar-down-begins/) It has been a fun, difficult, challenging, rewarding, frustrating, and fulfilling project. I've had a lot of help from many people on this website and from my 9 year old son. I've had to sacrifice a Cub 129 and 122 to bring it back to life.
This is my first tractor and I've learned a lot. I learned how to:
- Rebuild FEL cylinders
- Refresh a steering gearbox
- Work on Kohler motors (K341 and K301)
- Weld better (still a work in progress)
- Use GTalk for help (very easy)
- Make new friends
It's not totally complete but I had to drive it tonight!!
Here is a link to a YouTube video of my test drive.
