It was not intended for chit chat, but informational to anyone who was curious about the original. I was attempting to inform my fellow enthusiast that it was a 1961 cub cadet, but it was listed by Redblower and the CL owner as a 1963. It is still posted....but without my post.....the one in Traverse, MI.

So, my suggestion is intended to provide a way to better help my fellow enthusiast land a desirable cub by providing clarification, which is what everyone strives for as each of us pursues our hobby. I do believe that my post was deleted as "chit chat" without regards to the contents of it and thus, my suggestion to re-consider this policy so that we may better help each other.

Thanks,

Cub Cadet 123

Thank you Sam Mac. I appreciate that change. Wasn't necessary to put my username there--I wasn't seeking anything from it. After all, it was never a question of who is right, but rather a question of what is right. Hopefully, the serial number matches up for it to be a true '61 and a member can land it.

With much appreciation,

Cub Cadet 123

Does this mean we should PM a moderator any time we want to add information to a Craigslist / eBay thread?

No, just add the information. We already said that we try to keep "pertinent" information within the body of the thread. It's the "wish I was closer", or "would you hold it for a week" or "I saw one of those for sale the other day, this guy is way too high" that is not allowed. I really think that the info that was deleted in recent, was more out of carelessness than contempt. We try our best to be as fair as we can. It's really very simple. Just follow the rules.

As a note, if you want info on the said for sale item, don't ask about it in the thread. So in other words, if you have questions concerning purchase, "holding" the item, "offers"...... ETC. Don't post it withing the thread. This is why we require a "means of communication". If you get no response...... well, then we understand when there is a post saying such. A simple "PM SENT" is fine.

A post was recently made in the eBay/cl section for some tire chains that are still in the burlap sack, I posted stating that the chains were probably for 6-12 size tires since neither the original poster nor the add itself stated it and was just wondering why my post was deleted?

I understand all of this, and agree with 99% of it with one exception. If a seller, for example is selling a brinly plow and you're not sure it'll fit your specific machine, if I'm understanding correctly, it is not ok to ask within that For Sale ad if it will fit a certain machine? The info is pertinent to the post, relevant to other users, and not really "chit chat". Just curious, not trying to start or egg on anything

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
