Default Cub cadet 1650 What should I do



Hi guys I got a 1650 given to me by a friend of my dad's. the tractor is complete minus the engine which he put into his sons 108 for tractor pulling. Im not quite sure what to do with it, should i use it for parts for my two 1450's. I also have a 10 hp kohler and a 20 briggs should i try to put one of them in it? if so what engine do you think would work better would the 10 be strong enough to run the hydrolic lift? I would LOVE to know your guys and gurls opinion on what to do!

I would love to have a 1650, but personally, I would want the 16 HP Kohler! That's why it's a 1650!

I'm not sure the briggs would fit. The 10hp might get you going until you can find a larger hp engine. But - keep in mind, there were a lot of 10 hp Cub Cadets that do a fine job. I've got a 109 that I am giving a workout and at first glance, I thought 10 hp wouldn't be enough, but this tractor with 44 inch deck seems to do fine. Easy on gas too.

Good luck,
Bill

I agree I would like a 1650 so I'd hang on to it and try to find a 16 HP kohler for it.

I think the 10 would power it enough but I'd hold out for a 14 or 16 hp depending on the condition it's starting in.

The 10 hp kohler I have is out of my brothers 109, he put a 14 hp in it to get more power for lawn tractor pulling. The 10 is a great little engine and it will run the transmition but will it run the lift?

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.
