Default Hello from Berks County PA

Hello everyone, 1st post!

Let me start out, my name is Dan, I live near Reading PA and love to tinker. I have been racing go karts for years and using Briggs 5hp and Honda 390's, building my own engines and a lot of custom parts in basically a miniature sprint car. I just recently sold everything and want to get back into what I did as a kid, farm tractors. I have restored several Farmalls in high school, but since I no longer live on the farm, and wanted to stay true to IH, I got a Cub Cadet.

Anyway, I just bought a 66 Cub Cadet 122 this past weekend, no mower deck, but came with a snow plow for $300, that was down from the $600 the guy wanted. It hadn't run in years, took it home cleaned carburetor out and fresh gas and it fired right up! used it the rest of the day cleaning the snow we got Saturday night.

I got it in the shop, and started looking it over...... needs a clutch, badly. I found a guy in PA and scored a complete used clutch and spare rear with creeper box, carb kit, intake gasket, and couple other little things for another $300. I'll be going back this Saturday for wheel weights, head lights, a 3 point hitch and if I can swing it maybe a hydraulic setup.......

So far I have $650 into it and I'm loving it! This is the best garden tractor I have ever seen or owned!

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.
