Great photo, just caught on camera in the moment, was he searching for "horses, pony's, bears or cub's?" maybe we shall never know the thoughts going through Steve's mind.

Here is a recent photograph I bought of a Cub Junior at work in England, interesting how they fitted some road lugs to the rear wheels, I wonder what they were made of ? but guess it would make the ride a lot more comfortable for the driver.

This is one of my favourite period photographs of five Cub Juniors waiting to be bought and go to work.

Hi Malcolm, you better look closer at that row of "cub junior" tractors as first looks can be deceiving!

Tom,

I am not following you.  Could you please elaborate about your comments on the cub juniors?

Tom ad Reuhlz,

Having looked closely I think Tom is refering to the rear axle castings and them being K3's?? if they are does anyone know of a surviving K3 today? 

Malcolm.

RE:Wallis Cub Photograph Dated 1912

Malcolm's right they are k-3s.  Doesn't look like much difference but there is a lot switched between the two.

Also there is two k-3 left that I have seen or heard of.
One in Ohio and one in Texas.

Hope you can let us see some photgraphs of the surviving K 3's Tom, maybe there are more out there than we think??

For today here is a photograph of another British book called "Tractors on the Farm" , published in the 1930's by the weekly farming magazine "Farmer and Stockbreeder" a typically British scene of a 12-20 ploughing in a style we call "rig and furrow".

RE:Wallis Cub Photograph Dated 1912

It is a long while since we had any contributions to this thread so for today here is a piece of incredible early tractor data.

This was recently sent to me by another collector of tractor literature, he found this in a Agricultural Gazette Magazine dated January 14th 1921, it is titled "A Tractor Balance Sheet", what an incredible account of facts and figures of running a Wallis Cub Junior betweeen 1918 and 1921, clearly detailing the acres ploughed, cultivated, hay cutting, harrowing, threshing and hauling all this amazingly calculated to miles travelled by the tractor, then detailed running costs of petrol, paraffin, oil, wages and repairs.
Showing earnings, expenses and a balnce profit. We expect this level of accounting today but I never expected to see it from the Wallis Cub Junior era of the teens and early 20's
Also note the ploughing was done with both a two furrow *****shutt ploughs and three furrow Case depending of soil types.

Hope you find this as intersting as I have and hope you may come up with a comparison from North America.

Malcolm.
