    Any John Deere owners???

    Yes it was crazy the amount of things I used to do with the JDs and an old LGT18H Ford. None were suited for the abuse I gave them but amazingly, they all and I I survived to work another day. I've no issue with my current Cub that I bought new in 2009 but am not sure it will have the same...

    Any John Deere owners???

    Been a member here for a few years so I might as well add my $0.02. As I have seen here so far, it does not appear to be uncommon that a person might have a few different colors of tractors. I have owned a couple JD 420s for a long time. When I was a much younger man, I saw those come out and...

    Cub Cadet Model 128

    Welcome to the forum. It is great looking tractor you have. Keep us posted during the refurb of it.

    Cub Cadet 3240

    Who built this tractor? I grew up on IH tractors and recall the days in the 60s when the small town dealers usually had a new Cub Cadet in the shop to sell. I had read IH sold off some parts of the company and that was one of them. Who builds the Cubs of today?

    Cub Cadet 3240

    Just curious, if I were to pursue getting this tractor is there a place to determine what the production numbers were for this model? In no way do I think it will be a valuable tractor but more just a point of interest in getting a one year model.

    Yes they are. Cub made so many different model and types, there is surely one that fits every person. I have a penchant for the garden tractors from the 60s through the 80s. Truly fascinating machines to me. Please feel free to jump in with questions or comments. I am terrible at taking pics but...

    Nice looking tractor. Like everyone, Over my years I have owned a few limited year production vehicles a time or two. I sold my last one (Moto Guzzi) a few years ago.

    Cub Cadet 3240

    Relatively new guy here looking for information on the mower shown above. I ran across one recently that I think can be had for a song. It belongs to a family member and has suffered a fair number of years of neglect but is complete. Not so much abuse as just the use it as long as it runs...

    Sub-Compact Tractor with Loader

    I have had a subcompact tractor for years and for a small farm or most homesteads, they cannot be beat. Handy as can be. I have the BH on mine along with a FEL and you will be surprised how well it works.
