I picked this up over the weekend. Amazingly it runs even though it's been sitting. Will need to go through the carburetor and catch up all the maintenance.

On the trip back I picked up the touch control hydraulic system for it.  Once everything checks out OK I'll probably put a 3 point hitch on it.

I really like the 140 but too much weight for my trailer.  Until I get a new truck and trailer the Cub is as big as I can go.

I saw a 130 at the tractor show I didn't even know they made one

This one looks as good in person as in the picture.  Sometimes pictures hide stuff....

Someone made the outside of that one look nice.  I'm glad to hear that it runs well too.  

 

Good luck with the 3pt.  Make sure to take lots of photographs for us here.

 

Congrats on your nice Cub.

Nice looking Cub. I would really like to have one, no where to keep it inside right now. If I found a JD LA that was worth buying for a decent price I would probably put a garage door into the living room so I could keep it inside.

Primarily I'm going to use it for a plowing tractor.  To use a cub plow I'd need the rock shaft, actual plow and the draw bar mounts (the ones that are on there are for some sort of mower and won't hold the draw bar properly for a plow).  There is a company that makes a 3 point hitch for not a lot more than the $$ to get a plow on.  I figure with a 3 point I can just use the implements I've acquired for the Speedex.

 

 I would really like to have one, no where to keep it inside right now.

 

I don't have any inside space either.  I'm thinking I'll get one of those 10x10 portable garages and tuck it back in the tree line.  Keep the zero turn in there during the winter and a tractor in the summer.

The 10 x 10 portable garage is probably a really good option. We live in a sorta kinda residential area- not in town but close enough that we need to watch what is sitting around.

I ordered the 10x10 today.  There is a strip of woods on the back of my lot that is about 30' deep, and more woods in one of the back corners.  There is a spot cleared for trailer and implements in that corner.  The corner is tucked behind my 10X20 barn so you can't see it from the house.  I'm hoping the gray color will blend well enough the neighbors will never notice it through the trees.

Since both tractors and the zero turn have roughly a 4'x8' footprint I figure I can put one machine and my implements in there.  Or I could put both tractors in there and free up some work room in the shed.  Lots of possibilities.
