Could be a place to set your cold beer while you're working on it?

I went from a gifted Bolens Eliminator to a gifted Lowes Troy Built Pony around 2007-2008. Added a crankcase vent the Briggs Powerbuilt engine, in only the second season! With proper maintenance! I sunk another $400 into a replacement engine to put on it, and I was always replacing parts on it until I stumbled across my first Cub, a 1641 that was $200 in 2015 or 2016. I got it running and loved it, and never looked back. I couldn't sell that Troy Built fast enough. I was young and stupid, and thought "new" was better, because that old Bolens had a lot of wear and tear on it. I don't know how many Cubs I've tried out since then, fixed and sold, or fixed and used a little while and parted. I've settled on the 82 series. I like them the best of all.

Somehow my kid likes the older lawnmowers--Given the choice he'll rather run the 1811 than the 2284. Got so tired of the 2072 spinning one wet spring he quit using it and finished with the 128. But he is all about the latest phone app, computer, video game etc so maybe he is learning to sift through everything to find the best?

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.
