That looks pretty good.You do know that is the wrong seat ? It appears to be off a mid '60s,like the 123 had.

That looks really good. Are those rare? I recently saw one for sale in the next province from us. It's the first one I've seen up here.

Thanks for the refresher on the seat. LOL That seat is a restored seat that came off my 125.Got the seat recovered and some day I will get around to doing the rest of the tractor. Just had it on there to drive it around. Sitting on the fuel tank is rough on the rear. That will eventually get a tractor seat with fold down arm rests on it. The Cub Cadet correct police got run out of my neighborhood. LOL

JDBrian that model CC was only made for 1 production year. There is not a lot of them around.

Ron I really hope things come together in a timely fasion so I can bring the smoker to the WNY plow day.

Allen that will be my new worker for sure. I have dragged some rather heavy stuff around the yard and the torque is nothing short of amazing. My 682 has 3hp larger motor in it and it doesn't even compare. That deisal is bad to the bone.

Wait until you work all day and then check the fuel and its still full, then you will really love it. :)
