Chains on turf tires is best, chains on lug tires are close, probably 75-85% of the traction on snow/ice as chains on turf tires. Lug tires without chains probably 35-40% only of the traction a chained turf tire would have. Turf tire without chains... probably less than 30% of the traction of a chained turf tire. It was either the Chicago Motor Club or the American Automobile Club did the testing back in the 60's on tire chains. Whether it was a car or a Cub I doubt the tires & chains can tell the difference.

Bob N: My Original with two lift handles looks like a factory made variation to me. It could also, perhaps, be a dealer installed 3d party kit for the Originals. I have several pieces of Mott literature and there are no illustrations showing an Original, 70, or 100 with the double handles, so I do not think its solely Mott related. Also, I have not found it in any other literature of any kind. My Original has the handles to 1) the deck and 2)the rear lift. Of course, a front mounted accessory could also be used instead - a blade or sweeper for example. This is the only other tractor mounted example. Could you ask "knowledgeable" to contact me so we can compare a closer inspection. The photo you posted seems to be identical to mine. Myron

Art, two quick questions.
Do you have any pictures of the dry wall job?
Did you know dry wall goes on a certain way?

Hey Charlie, I like those big JD weights on there! What are those on the outside?

Charlie:
Looks good. I have one bit of advice,though. I'd remove some of the weights on the furrow wheel. Wyatt had his 169 weighted in a similar fashion @ PDv2.0 @ Steve's house. He had trouble keeping the tractor on a line because the weights were preventing him from getting the furrow wheel down into the furrow. The land wheel kept driving the tractor into the furrow. It's in the video, too.

Wyatt - chime in here, please.

Oh, yeah. And if it's a internal brake rearend, you can hang some IH weights on the inside of the wheels. You get the weight and none of the problems associated with an abundance of outboard weights.

Could anyone help me with a governor problem[10hp on a 104]? It gains speeed as it runs. It will not slow down after you slow down the throtle. It is almost like it needs a return spring to slow down the idle.

Spent a couple hours tonight with a cub guy. He had an Original that had a right foot brake that worked the left brake. The paint looked identical to what could have been an original paint job, At first I thought "PO" but the hole the brake cable woud have used wasn't there either. some other odd ball stuff. The front spindles were modified to move the wheels forward about an inch. Anybody ever heard of any of this?

Charlie P...Follow the Brinly weighting guide and you need 50-100 lbs on the furrow wheel and 150 lbs on the landside wheel. Balance the tractor out with weights in the front, proper plow adjustment and you can be unstoppable!!!

Are the aux lights a "High Intensity Discharge" style for shining "deer"??(look out Robb!!!)

Tom H....Get your priorities right!! Your job cuts into your hobby way too much!!!

**PSA**...The literature on the new FARMALL series tractors arrived at C&G today. VERY interesting!!

I guess I should have said that it was almost ready, I put the front weight bracket on and already had the weights on for throwin snow this winter. I planned on doin some switchin of the weights before it really hit the dirt. Good thing you guys said somethin though, I would have prolly forgot to switch'um.

Those are JD tractor weight spacers, they add an extra 34 pounds each. We won't say anything about the JD suitcase weights on the front that Jim D sold me, grin

Jared-
Kenda! That's exactly what they were, thanks!!!

Keith-
The weights didn't ride up on the ground at all, they just dug through, the problem was that I was OVER weighted on the tractor and the 12" brinly's landslide wasn't adjusted right . . . . little chinamen kept popping up and telling me so
happy.gif
When I was over-weighted I got too much bite and got the front end light and with the rudder action of a 12" plow with the landslide out of adjustment the front dove for the furrow. I don't remember if I had a front weight rack then or not.

FWIW, this weekend with my 10" brinly I plowed 3 gardens with 12" wide turf tires and no weight other than me, given it's not as tough as a field, but with the flotation I had, it was a great demonstration that you can have your Cub over-weighted.

I finally found a Cub Cadet 149. While the great debate on balance gears was going on my motor was rebuilt without balance grears.Thanks to My Dad and Son who spent there time cleaning and reassembling motor. Motor was part of Son's 4-H small motor project. Best part is 3 generations working/learning from each other.
149 is set and ready to plow Saturday at Plum Tree. Hope to see you there. Son has laid claims to 149-looks like it time to find another one.
