ALWAYS wanted a Cub Low Boy. Theres only one around here close that I know of. Been driving by it every day for years as its only 3/4 of a mile from here, between my home and town in an open front lean-to not 100 feet from the road.
After the MRS left for work this morning I drifted off back to sleep. Get up at the crack of 9:30 AM ready to take on the day.
Always get on GTT first thing in the morning. Gotta see what people are working on or new acquisitions, ETC.
Then a little Facebook and out the door I go. Well, today I open facebook and we have a local swap-N-shop facebook page as I'm sure most communities do. Somehow it prioritizes the swap-N-shop to the top of my feed even if its not the most recent post which is usually annoying but today I see THIS!!!
Couldn't believe my eyes! Recognize the tractor right off. The sellers name is conformation its the same tractor. The post is already 14 hours old. Scroll down..... no one had said "I'll take it" yet. Just some questions about the tractor. Blood pressure is now pegging the gauge! Gotta go!
Pull on yesterdays pants in a hurry.
[I'll make note of that next time the MRS is giving me heck about not putting my dirty clothes down the laundry chute]
Grab the checkbook and out the door I run.
In 10 minutes the tractor is mine!
Hasn't been used in a few years. The guy used to own a eating establishment in town with a large yard and this is what he mowed the yard with for a couple of decades. He retired and sold the place maybe 5-7 years ago.
Borrowed the picture from the ad. Not as nice as the picture makes it look. Starter has quit while sitting and rear main seal is leaking badly. Otherwise its supposed to run good and mow. I doubt I'll use it as a mower. Just always wanted one of these. The year is 1956.
See, Its a good thing I was reserved at the Pella, Iowa auction so I still have expendable funds in the bank account.
