    Model 12 16 gauge

    Those finnbears are awesome rifles. I have a couple in my collection as well. I really have a soft spot for Sako and Weatherby rifles. Make sure the bolt is clean, and I mean clean. A lot of those just sit in a safe for years and the bolt will gum up with dust, old grease and oil. This causes...

    Cub cadet commercial

    I may be wrong, but the local dealer told me that the xt3 is the 3000, with the updated body. I've never checked into this info, just took him for his word. I'm sure there are small differences, and updates. But the frame and running gear should be the same.

    Cub cadet commercial

    We have 400+ hours on 2 of the proz machines, and the third was new this spring, it currently sits with 127 hours on the clock. I work for the local dpw, dept of public works, and the primary operators are summer help students, high school and college kids. They mow the cemetery and and other...

    Cub cadet commercial

    My work has 3 of the proZ 500 s models. They are far superior to scag or any others for our use. The 4 wheel steering keeps the front end from sliding out on steep side hills, and the decks are WAY overbuilt, with a very simple belt routing. They all use the same engines and hydro pumps, so at...

    Thought I might share a new Pup picture

    You can't tell me they aren't best buds. Colt and ruger are getting used to this life in the woods. They play all day then nap all evening before bed.

    Any Sears fan lurking about?

    The you tube channel "Taryl fixes all" did a series on the restoration of a sears garden tractor. I don't recall what model they did, but it might give you some insight for parts or tech tips.

    I need help

    You and I both need help apparently. I just picked up an old hit and miss that doesn't run. My wife asked me what I was gonna do with it, my reply to that should be obvious, fix it, then crack a beer and smile as she runs! Nice engine you found, she sounds amazing.

    Hi from Idaho.

    Welcome aboard! The 1650 is my favorite machine. I found mine with a tiller, blower, and 44" deck. If you ever decide to part with that sickle bar, it will go quick around here!

    Parts For Sale New Seat for Ultima ZT2 54

    That appears to be the same seat as on my xt2's, they are VERY comfy! Might have to get one for my lo-boy 185 now that I'm thinking about it!

    Sealed bearings on a mower hub?

    We have three cub pro-z 500 s models at work. All 3 have sealed bearings on the decks and all 3 have over 200 hours with one over 400 hours. I have yet to replace a belt or spindle. There is a night and day difference between cubs commercial products and their residential products.

    New member question

    Welcome, and if you don't care about the tractor being 100% factory correct, you could always turn one on a lathe. I made mine out of some oak scraps I had laying around. My machine, being a hydro, needed three made. But they are very easy to turn, and would make a great first project if you...

    Thought I might share a new Pup picture

    I haven't gotten a raspberry yet because colt and ruger head straight to the bushes as soon as I open the door to let them out! Crazy pups... 🤪 But I guess that's why we love em!

    Iron Gard Questions

    Have any of you guys ever put pearl or metal flake in? I'm wondering how it would look. My 1650 is do for a spray and I really want the pearl in the white. My bride thinks I should flake the yellow as well, but I think that may be too much, maybe the frame and rear fenders, but would be a waste...

    Info on how a carburetor works

    That is amazing! I've been working on engines for 30 years, and to actually see the atomization is something pretty cool!

    Cub hour meter & lights.

    I assumed the same thing when I got my 1650, until someone on here straightened me out as well. Most guys on here are absolute fountains of cub information. Keep up the good work, that tractor is definitely worthy of some lovin!
