Default Hello from Missouri

Ok, so here goes. I’ve been a member of OCC for about a year. I’ve never posted anything but this site has helped me immensely. So today is the day I’m actually going to try to tackle posting a message and maybe even a picture.....

A little about myself, I bought my Cub Cadet 125 from my brother-in-law last year with a locked up motor. Partially because I’ve always wanted one, and partially for the challenge of rebuilding a Kohler 12 horse motor. I’ve rebuilt small motors in the past , mainly dirt bikes. So I thought, how hard can it be..... definitely more of a challenge than what I thought. It turns out they are nothing like a vintage 2 stroke. Somewhere along the line, I caught the “ cub bug”.

After the rebuild I thought, well I might as well paint it. The project quickly spun out of control. Of all the things I’ve “ restored”, “ rebuilt”, or “repaired “, this has definitely been the most fun. I’m going to try to post some pictures, let me know what you guys think....

It won't be much longer until you have another Cub or two, or ten.

Nice tractor. Great job on the restoration.

Thank you,
I'm a narrow frame guy, but I like the look of a wide frame. If that makes any sense. I swapped out the front end with one off a 1811. Not sure what the " correct police" are going to say about it. But I like 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.
