The cub was one of Farmall's strokes of genius, a small tractor widely reputed to have been designed for tiny one-horse tobacco farms in the south. The machine worked well on small farms, and was snapped up by farmers big and small during the machinery-hungry 1940s. The tractor's usefulness on small acreage plots and the fact that it's light and easy to tow and store makes it an essential addition to any serious Farmall collector's shed. John Coffee of Rainier, Washington, owns this 1948 cub.
