IHC Cub Cadet Forum

I figured that I'd post a few pics of my other cubs.... I've sorda neglected them since I got the '49 Farmall Cub. I was raised always wanting a cub growing up, my grandpa told me that the IH Cub Cadet was the best you could get... all he could ever afford some old Dynamarks, Bolen's and a Craftsman.
When I finally got the situation and ability to get a Cub Cadet a few years ago it happened to be an "Original" that was about 30 miles away. Since then I've got a 127 and 73 that came from NY and I've also got a Spirit of 76, which my wife's grandfather gave to me. Along with a newer GT2544. The 127 was a complete tear down restoration. The 73 is all original except the rear wheels. The Original hasn't had anything done but the hood painted. Since these pics have been taken I've restored a 38" cast end deck for the 127 and put the wheels from the 73 on it and put a set of Carlisle PowerTracs on the 73.
Nice collection of Cub Cadets. Look very good. I have a 129 but haven't even gotten to that one yet. I take it the spirit of 76 has the blue and the stars?

It does Rudi.... for some reason IH made the Sof76 a lawn tractor, not a garden tractor.... puzzles me as to why. I've got a couple pics on my other system of it that I will get uploaded. I also noticed that pic of the 127, I hadn't got the seat re-painted yet.... I'll have to get some final "glamor shots" of it.
Good lookin bunch of kids there. I like the sickle mower. Keep up the good work.
If you can't find it, don't lose it.
Nice they look too clean now get them in the sand box and get them all dirty.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
Nice Cubs Gary!
Hey Gary...really NICE collection of Cub Cadets I have a model 73 so I'm very partial to them. Your Haban sickle bar mower is really NEAT ! I use my 73 to plow with a #8 Brinly plow. Mine has the fenders and headlights & pan seat seat cushion (much more comfortable when plowing). THANKS for posting your photos Gary ...'Country'

Nice looking Cubs Gary.
I've got a few videos of the Haban in action on my youtube, www.youtube.com/gcbailey34 I could really use a sickle for the Cub when I get it all back together, that extra foot of cutting would be real helpful.
Neat pictures! Saw the sickle mower sticking out and thought you had it hung up on a c-22. Man that is neat and needless to say, first time I ever saw one. Wonder if dad knew about them when he had his cadet. Really enjoyed the videos of the sickle mower also. Good looking bunch.

I saw a couple pics of my haban, but was taking it word of mouth for the most part.... it made it's way from VT down to WV...
