Interesting dilemma for me today and I need you Cub Cadet enthusiasts to help me out. An offer was made to me to buy 3 Cub Cadets:
1, is a 122 without an engine but all there.
2, is a 128 with a possible mismatched hood and a bent right wheel spindle.
3, is a 1650 Hydro, appears to be the better machine.
All have original IHC finishing mower decks. And they all probably need a little work, but what machine doesn't that hasn't been restored.
My plan was to restore one good machine (maybe two) but I'm not sure which one. I would like for it to be a real workhorse around the place, and with a little wash down, take it to some tractor shows. I know the 122 will generate a little more interest there. We own a '55 LoBoy that we drag around to shows.
Any ideas where to start going with this project? Like I need another project.
