Default Mixed breed Original???

So, I see there is a new picture on the title page above....Correct me if I wrong, It looks like a modified Original. More like a Hydrostatic Original. Whatever, this thing looks really cool.. Is there a story about this beautiful machine? Do tell!

I've looked into it a little bit, and managed to find some info on another Cub forum about it. It is indeed an Original but with hydrostatic drive. The engine is a 10 horse instead of 7. Supposedly there were actually 2 of these built, and the other one kept its original 7 horse. Because of the driveshaft running through they had to offset the whole tower to clear the steering column.

From what I read, it was an experimental unit built as a demonstration of the Sundstrand hydrostatic drive unit to show that it could be done. Of course, we didn't actually see a hydrostatic Cub until the 123.

I don't want to take all the information and restate it here, not sure if you'e ever seen ihcubcadet.com, but its another good Cub forum. This thread has all sorts of info and pictures of the unit, as well as a black and white photo of the supposed 2nd experimental unit. I highly reccomend checking it out: https://www.ihcubcadet.com/threads/p...-original.310/

It was an IH experimental unit, predecessor to the 123.

Not that I am aware of. The last known owner was IH itself.

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.
