Default New to me 71

I traded a 1450 that needed a lot of work but ran for this clean little 71, it has a creeper and fenders the tires are nice. Its an older restoration but it still looks great, I'm going to clean up a few things and repaint the grill and the foot rests and get a new "71" decal for the hood since one side is messed up. I have a restored deck that needs spindles that I'm going to finish and put under it.

Are you sure that is a 71? It looks in too nice of shape to be that old.....perhaps it is a 72!!!...........Just joking....Nice looking 71 and sounds like you made a great deal for it!

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.
