I was thinking of getting another tractor just for running a 5' finish mower. I have a Super A, and love it, but don't wan't to tie it up with a belly mower because I cultivate with it. Anyway I thought a cub would be about right, but does it do good pulling a 5' mower? The prices for both are about the same and I know the Super A is alot more tractor, but it is also taller. Also what about a lo-boy cub? Any comments? Thanks, Daniel

I know a guy who has used his cub to mow for forty years. He never lets his yard grow to high though. We used to own a cub with a 5 foot mower and quickly figured out that even though it had turned up some that it was wiser to own a 140 with a six foot mower, it has plenty of power.

Opinions vary on 5 foot mowers on Cubs. I have one on mine and it makes a very good and very fast lawnmower. If you are cutting anything but a lawn or an area where you don't let the grass get to high (read that to mean over 4-6"), then the 42 or 48" is probably better. Anyway, there is no way we will get rid of our Cub with the 60".

Yes, the Cub will do ok with the 60 inch mower as long as you don't let the grass get too high. However, given the choice, I would take the Super A or 140 every time.

The Cub does best with a 42 inch mower, but will do okay with a 48. The others are right, a 60 inch mower is really too much to be effective with the Cub. Stick with the Super A if you want to cut 60 inches.

If you really want to mow with a 5 ft mower, better stick with a Super A. The cub does not have enough power to run a 5 ft mower if the grass is high. Your mowing will be a lot faster with the Super A.

I have a 1947 farmall cub,I put a 5 foot Wood's mower on it. Cub has a hard time running the mower.I now use a Farmall Super AV with a Wood's 5 foot mower.Does alot better and you can go faster.I cut about 5 acers a week.When I use Cub it took 1 or 2 hours longer to cut grass.I now use Cub to trim with, I put a sickle bar mower on it.
