I have a chance to purchase a 1572 Cub with a D-600 Kubota Diesal in it for a power plant. It has the factory 3pt on the rear, power steering, turning brakes and it runs like a top. The down side is it has been used to push cow manure it's whole life and is not very cosmetically pleasing to the eyes. There is not a panel on this thing that is straight or not rusted. The farmer would take $375 for this unit which is a steal. Here in lies the problem my bride says no money will come out of the bank to fund this purchase. I got the if you want it that bad sell one of your other toys to buy this. So now I have to figure out which is my least favorite Cub and sell it if I want the Super. My phone was dead when I looked at this so I have no pics. Decisions Decisions

Well, if you always wanted one and you think it's in good enough shape to be brought back to where you are happy with it, then go for it. You really need to think about how much time and money is going to be required to get it restored. You say it is beat up cosmetically but what is the mechanical condition? If it hasn't been maintained properly then it could turn into a money pit.

Very good advice, Brian. I have had a few "money pits" in my life however, only one of them was not worth what I put into it. Wife still reminds me about that one. :wallbanging:

If the engine is in great working order, it alone is worth the purchase price. Then there's the 3-point lift. I'd say a great deal! There would be no decision/decision for me!

Sounds like my CFO! Oh, well, that's probably what keeps us in the black. Sounds like a good deal to me if it's in running condition.

I had todo that , sell a GT for a good price on another GT, wife said something to the same affect.

Mortgage, kids, bills, blah blah, it always gets in the way of good deals.

I would do it,

I sold a good complete G14, blower, deck, tiller, and got my 318, very happy that i did it.
