That one looks nice, but a bit steep I think. They are some of the best made, the IH Cubs.

They are pretty common, I also thought they were rare before I joined this site. I almost remember somebody saying that if it was sold at a cub dealer it was painted yellow and white, if sold at an IH dealer it was painted red.

After IH sold Cub to MTD, they were produced under the CCC name, Cub Cadet Corp. the Yellow and White ones were made by IH and the red ones were made by CCC.

I believe only the 82 series were red.

CCC rear end (differential) is black, IH is red, on the 82 series, so I've read. could be wrong, it has happened before!

It looks to me that the picture in this ad has the IH front logo.

From that angle it is hard to tell if it's an IH built unit or a CCC built unit. IH started building the 82 series in september of 79 before CCC was involved and they made them up until April of 81 when they shutdown production at Louisville and all the tooling was moved to the Brownsville Tn CCC plant. CCC production came online in late 81 with the first model off the line being a yellow and white 482. From that point on ALL the 82 series tractors built were built by CCC and like said above they were painted according to where they were shipped. If it was bound for and outdoor power equipment dealer it was painted yellow and white, if it was bound for an IH dealer it was painted red with white wheels and trim. As also stated above the transmissions in a red CCC built machine with an IH badge will have a black transmission as this was not painted a seperate color for IH and the black is what was used in the yellow and white version for OPE dealers. The early CCC built 82 series DID have the cast iron transmission to use up existing supply that had been allready manufactured by IH before the buyout. CCC built the 82 series for both IH in red and themselves in yellow and white from 81 to 85. The tractors were little unchanged except for the transmission housing being cast aluminum with steel flanges wherever there was a bearing as opposed to the cast iron housing. At this time they dropped the red paint as there was no longer an IH to supply tractors to and they rebadged the line with a new numbering system but the tractors themselves were very little unchanged from the 82 series.

I stand corrected! Knew they were made about the time IH sold, thought it was after.

All of the 82 series tractors built by IH were red for a while,from model 482 right up to model 1282 .
There were some smaller ones too,but I can remember the models right off.They were more lawn tractor than garden tractor.

They were indeed lawn tractors. The models were the 182, 282, and 382. They were very similar to the earlier models in design like the spirit of 76.
