From growing up on a farm, I am grateful that my Dad taught me how to back up a Trailer or a Wagon. Kids today need this technology.

Same here...Dad insisted we learn to drive manual transmissions and back not only the vehicle, but a trailer too! We had to back up using only the mirrors. My one sister has her CDL and was a truck driver. Back up technology is nice but I rarely use it.

Me too.. and both my sisters.. we had to be proficient at using a clutch and learn how to back a trailer before we could get our permits Might fix some of these kids today if they had to grow up and work on a farm?

This is 3/4 of the people that come to the shop to drop off or pick up their tractor, some people are so bad I swear they're doing it on purpose. I've literally had to tell people to get out of their truck so I could get in and get their trailer turned around. I guess it all has alot to do with your environment growing up, most city people can hardly drive so I'm not surprised they can't back a trailer.

Yeah, the forum I got this from, they were talking like it's great technology, "should of had this a long time ago..."
One said something like, it would be great, then I wouldn't have to strain my neck trying to turn my head to back up a trailer...
I broke my neck, and can't turn my head even if I wanted to that far. Isn't that's what mirrors are for!
I was taught very young to back up a trailer with a truck, and a wagon with a tractor, so backing up anything is pretty easy to me.

Backing up a trailer is easy,
backing up a 10 ton gravity wagon is a little more difficult,
Backing up 2 hitched together, is like pushing a chain uphill.

Backing up trailers is easy. Wagons with four wheels is what I call being able to back something up.

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.
