1964 VW engine on a Gibson frame. After sitting in an old barn for 15 years, I brought this thing to life in May of 2009. Fuel filters, new gas lines, new fuel pump, carb rebuild, plug wires, plugs, points, 6 volt battery , battery cables, wiring and 3 oil changes. Smokes sometimes on start up due to bad valve seals but runs great after warm up. Got several plows, rock rake and a small bulldozer blade to play with. Love it !
Plowing w/ Cub Cadet 73 & a 10" Plow
Here is a video of my husband and my father plowing our garden. They are using a 7 HP Cub Cadet 73 with a 10" plow. Enjoy! =) OK, let me set the record straight! Yes, this is a 10" plow! Our garden is not as big as you may think it is. We do not own the 40+ acres that join our property. That would be absolutely insane to plow that much. My family has a collection of different models of Cub Cadet tractors. We plowed that day for FUN!
