Hey everyone Iím looking for the value of my cub cadet that my grandpa left me just a general value. It does run but needs card work to keep running any info would help

Well..... Doesn't look to be a very early serial number. I see no battery, and a flat tire. Deck is rusty, and the absence of hood decals and hood ornament make me think it has been repainted or the hood changed. Should have smaller tires on the rear, and I see several other things missing or incorrect. It does still have the oil bath air cleaner. No options that I see, unless you count electric start..... I'd say no more than $200 in the condition it's in. If I was buying, $150 is all I'd pay. That is assuming the deck does turn, clutch is all there and the trans isn't stuck.

Both J-Mech and cubby have a better idea of what these sell for, and what the worth is, there's a difference. However, I would rather pay you a little more than the prices mentioned than to see you part it out and sell on Ebay where you probably would make closer to $500 or $600 with a little work. I say this because Cubs not making anymore of these. Also for another $50-$100 to make the seller happy not gonna break the bank. Are you going to sell it or was this a curiosity based question.

Most likely going to sell

If my Grandfather left me a Cub Cadet it wouldn't go anywhere!. I would seriously consider keeping it for sentimental reasons. Just a little bit of work along and you would have a decent little tractor with some history behind it. But that's just me.. I tend to get too sentimental and attached to things... especially if a family member owned it.:beerchug:
Unfortunately it's not going to bring a ton of money but it is a cool little tractor.. another reason i'd hang on to it!

He wouldn't make that much off that tractor, even in parts. Not enough there to sell than can easily ship.


Brownell,
You originally said this was given to you by your father in law, but now you said grandfather.....which is it??

J-Mech, I don't doubt what your saying.. Ok maybe not $500 but certainly from what I see going on at ebay you could part out and make more than 150$ And thats assuming some local pickup of things sold. Like another poster said, I would not sell an item like this if my grandfather left it to me. If I did not have an interest in it I would find another family member or good friend to GIVE it a good home. If I lived local and saw this for 300$ I would consider it for no other reason than to know it was not going to get scrapped or chopped up.. Thats just me. I'm not saying I would offer more than a person is asking tho so yeah.. I would buy it for $150 and run LOL

Not everyone is living where keeping any outdoor equipment is a practical matter. Living in a condo, townhouse, apartment, renting a room, etc.
Or maybe in the military, etc.

Anyways, some are destined to be parted out to keep others going or for parts to restore another.

Looks like he has a garage and some toys in there as well. If itís truly your grandfathers Iíd also say hang on to it and fix it up. The original is much easier to get apart than the later tractors for beginners itís a great model to refurb your self. Lots of people here to answer your questions along the way. So question. What is significant about 1991? Weíre you born then? Married then? Graduate high school?
