What a nice machine! 42" deck, so it can sneak around my little fruit trees better than that old John Deer 318 with its 50" deck. Plus, the Cub is pretty zippy and ought to cut mowing time, even with the smaller deck. I'm going to park the Deere out by the road with a sign offering it for $800. That should be attractive to somebody, since I can't find one on-line for less than $1000. Very tough old tractors with frame-members heavy enough for a pickup truck.
