    Here is my very first IH cub cadet, a 1970 model 147. Needs a tune-up and alittle TLC.

    Here is number 2. And this was not planned. I couldn’ t pass up this deal. A 1962 Original Cub fully restored! Two cub cadets and one scout...yea, I have a serious problem now.

    I didn't know these existed! Seem like a way more economical and practical hobby than trucks.

    Produced by International Harvester from 1961-1981! Excellent little garden tractors! And you will be surprised how expensive some parts are on these tractors!

    I use both of them. Each has a duty. The hydro (147 Cub) cuts grass. And the Cub Original, now has a push blade on it, for either gravel, dirt and/or snow work. I don’t have any pictures of them working, but will post in the future. Thanks for your interest!

    The 147 was the Cadillac of garden tractors in 1970. Spent a LOT of time growing up on a original and a 127.
