Thanks all for the compliments. I have not been on here for some time and I missed them.

You're inspiring me to find a loader and another super, although I have an IH 284 with a loader already

Trick of it is the nimble + hydro would be awesome. On the negative side, the 284 is too light for a lot of things, and a cub would probably only lift 1/4 what it does with counterweight. What will yours pick up?

It will lift way more than I have counterweight for. I had 600 lbs of concrete mix in bags in the bucket and to be able to move it I had to stand in the weight box or the rear wheels would start to come off the ground. I removed one bag and it was ok. I have loaded rear tires, about 75 lbs of cast iron on each wheel and a weight box with about 250 lbs in it. with my 225 lbs you would think that would be enough ballast!!!!!! I really wish it had front wheel assist. Been thinking about that idea for quite some time now. I will have to say that it is very handy and useful. The wife uses it all of the time for yard and garden work. How about some pictures of your 284 with the loader?

Very well done mod. I am going to copy this. I got a grille shell now and waiting on the hood to show up so I can do this to my 1862. It lost the hood and grille in a shop fire (I bought it that way).

It is worth the time and effort to do this mod. This is the way that the cyclops should have been built. All the best features of both series. I have collected the parts to do the dash tower and fender fuel tank conversion on a 782 that has the power steering and super steer axle from an 1864. It is much easier to fill the fuel tank when it is in the rear fender.

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.
