    I looked at a Cub Cadet 100 this weekend with a 44" deck. I need to know the weight of the tractor, but I cannot find that info at the popular Cub sites.

    Thanks.

    I am sure a Traveler would haul it!

    Probably not a Honda though:devil:

    It will fit in the Traveler. Have to take off the steering wheel on the 100 so it will fit height-wise, or let air out of the tires. With the slope of the liftgate, I have to take off the seat as well and protect the glass with some foam or something. That 100 is sorta rectangular. The deck has to come off, too.

    I just want to know if my homemade 2x8 ramps can handle the weight with additional shoring.

    I think about 800-1k with the deck.

    Tim you cant just pick up the front two tires put them on the tailgate and then pick up the rear and slide it right in? Seriously that is what I do with my grandpa's old snapper lawn mower sometimes.

    You could with a Cub Cadet, But your (BOYS) would be on ice for week! And then your back would be as bad! But your (BOYS) hurt so bad you didn't notice!

    I always loaded Dad's 129 in to the back of a pick up F150 or 1100 IH with two 2x10x10s. If you lower the tailgate all the way down it makes it a little better. Put some rubber between the bumper and tailgate.
