Today I picked up a Cub Cadet #1 dump cart to compliment my 125.  Got it for a good price, is a bit rusty, but can be restored.  Saw it on listed Craigslist a few days ago and I thought it would be a good idea to pick it up since there are not too many around.

 

It has new tires, rolls well (bearing well lubricated), and the tilt function + latch work well.  I don't see a serial number tag and these may never have had one.

 

Here are some pictures.

Nice cart. The wheels and axle look pretty strong on that cart. I notice that your Cub 125 has a nice JD seat on it!

Hey Brian, thank you.  The wheels are good with new rubber.  Yes,  I need to fix the 125 up a bit.  It came with a JD seat and newer padded rubber Cub Cadet Steering wheel.  I do have some extra Cub seats, but one is the older white with blue rim bucket style that would go on a 122 or 123.

 

The Cub 125 is one of my favorite tractors.  Solid as a rock.

Thank you Levi,  I think it is an uncommon and hard-to-find dump trailer.  That is one of the reasons I wanted to pick it up.  Unfortunately, I did not really find much information on this cart or how uncommon they are.

They had an article on the #1 carts in Red Power magazine. According to that article they were made from '60-'67.  IH actually built 4 different carts for the Cub Cadet's and Cadet's. They were labeled 1,2,3 & 4. The #1 cart was the one with the sloped sides and no tailgate. The #2 and #4 had tailgates and were shaped like other carts at the time. The #2 cart actually had fenders on it which set it apart from the #4. The #2 also had stake pockets in the bed so side racks could be added. The #3 cart looks rather similar to the #1,but it has smaller tires and only the rear panel is sloped. It was designed for the the smaller Cadet's.

Hi Levi, thank you.  I did run across an eBay listing of all 4 of the trailers.  From the advertisement description, it was difficult to determine the models to the pictures.  I does provide perspective to show all four together as a comparison.

I have admired those carts for a couple years now. The seller has dropped the price from $3400 to $2400. Maybe in a couple more years I will be able to afford them. :rolling:

Yes, they did seem a bit pricey.  I imagine that the seller would do better selling them individually.  However, he probably wants to sell them as a complete set to a collector.  At $2400, that is $600 per cart.  Ouch!

Haven't got to do too much with the GT's lately. Too many other things going on.
