A fellow at work asked if I wanted an old Cub 1872 , the story goes he bought it new ( in the 80's ?) when he lived in NY state . Moved back in our area since early 90's used it for his part time mowing business until he got a zero turn . Gave it to another fellow at work to have at his gun club , they used it for years but it seems that equipment that different people use sometimes doesn't get the service it should Anyway the driveshaft either broke or what they use  for a U-joint and it tore apart the hydraulic lines . It was pushed aside and was going to be scraped . He ended up getting it back and was going to fix it . It's been sitting in his shed now  a few years .  He figured since I enjoy the old David Bradley's I might want a old tractor project . A side note here : My NEWEST tractor that does all my mowing , leaf pick-up ect  is the 1983 John Deere 318 so this one is newer lol, . I don't know what shape it's in now from sitting but will find out in a few hours .

Brought it home today Besides the driveshaft problem the bolts on the right side axle housing are stripped might not b charging. I left it on the trailer I want to pressure wash it first but that won’t be until at least next week or when it gets warmer

You're going to have a busted hood if that backhoe gets any closer to it.

I got the 60" deck , it might have been removed for transit or to look at the broken driveshaft . He told me the deck was made by Haben for the Cub , option maybe ? Was pretty heavy , we used my HF atv winch that I temporary mounted on the trailer , pulled the tractor up first then ran the cable under it to pull the deck up . He also gave me a set of rear Carlisle tires , not a V type but atv ones . The picture posted is one he sent the day he pulled it out of his shed , the orange backhoe is a Dig-It  pull behind back-hoe . It was one he bought from work when they started buying small track excavators . There nice little machines , the hydraulic drive wheels unlock for towing , there's a drop down tongue with a hydraulic " shoe " that it like a center outrigger that will raises the tongue for hooking up to a tow vehicle .  The stripped bolts in the axle housing , is that common ?

Those stripped bolts may have led to the drive shaft failure. Is that an aluminum rear? Might be able to heli-coil, but I would use Loctite with them to make sure they stay put.

Al, nice tractor you got there, I have a 2072 with a command swap so I do know a little about these, but anyway yes the drive shaft thing on those are a problem.  And if the rear bolts are broken look around the rear more as there could be more problems...

You will have to pull the rear to fix those broken bolts right. The Haban deck is a nice one but they are VERY heavy...
