The 1100 is a stripped down version of the Quietline models. It uses a Peerless transmission that is belt drive instead of the Farmall Cub style shaft drive gear transmission. It was designed by IH to compete more with the cheaper box store mowers back in the day. They can be somewhat collectible since they didnt make as many of them as they did the regular Quietlines. It was the first Cub Cadet to use the Peerless transmission as well as the first to use a Briggs engine. It also used the same attachments as the rest of the Quietline series did.

Im having trouble finding the serial # on the engine to get parts. The only decal i see is the briggs decal on the back engine shroud. Could it be under all that sheet metal?

The first three digits are the "kind code" designating what type of machine it is, 205 being a garden tractor. The next 4 digits are the "machine code", in this case 0590 designates it as a model 1100. The "U" designates it as made in the united states. Finally the numbers after the "U" are the actual serial number. Since the first number for march of 79 was 648387, your tractor 648587 is the 200th tractor from march of 79. That number includes ALL cub cadets made as there was no break in the numbers for each different model and they just gave sequential numbers to the various models in order as they came down the production line.

I'm not sure of that model as I've never worked on one of them but many briggs numbers were actually stamped into the shrouding of the engine. Somewhere on the blower housing.

I was wondering how it could be belt drive with the motor sitting in the frame like that, but I see it has a shaft to a 90 degree gearbox with a belt to the rear. I've never seen one of these up close. Pretty interesting. Thanks for the pictures.

Interesting Cub, never knew they used a BGB to do this, would've been easier to just turn the engine & use a belt from the get-go?
