I thought some of you might enjoy this bit of Cub Cadet "original" assembly line pictorial history.

I enjoyed it. Especially the lack of robot assemblers. Nice to see real people doing a days work for a days wages.

That and pants pulled all the way up.

Thanks Maynard!

Very interesting Maynard. Those are sturdy little tractors. Well built and that's why so many of them survived. I noticed that the guys painting were not wearing any breathing gear at all which couldn't have been good for their health.

I believe production on them actually started in 1960,but weren't available to the public until 1961.

The first thing I noticed was the lack of roll cages on the forklifts.
Thanks for making this post. Really enjoyed it.
