Just about finished my Cub Cadet diecast collection.

They are from left, 125 with trailer, 126, 129, 1650 and 682. All I need is the 122. The one in the back is a newer super.

If you don't mind me asking, are those little puppies expensive?

 

Have you found the Spirit of 76 model?

Yes! All depends on the condition and if it's in the original box or not. To me the condition was not a concern, and if it had a box or not didn't matter so I paid less, but still enough.

You know I thought of the Spirit, but even in rough shape there a lot of money. But, I guess if I want the "full" collection that one would need to be included :beerchug: maybe someday.

Also I'm pretty sure each tractor was also available with a push blade and without. But I'm not going to get that involved.

• Just go to eBay and type in;  Toy Garden Tractor , or  Die-Cast Garden Tractors .

• Usually several dozen on there all the time, prices can range from $15 to $75 usually, sometimes in the hundreds.  Older Cub models in the 70's will often cost more than the real full size version, $900.  You can buy new boxed ones today for about $30-50 each; TSC stores have some.

• Often the original box in good shape will double the value.

• There are several books and entire Toy shows devoted just to just these little toys.  At the shows they have complete working farms set up on large boards with 1:32 or 1:64 Scale size tractors and implements doing work, with animals, building and trees, just like model railroaders do.

• Google:  Die Cast Garden Tractors, and also  ERTL (a former major Iowa, USA manufacturer, most new ones are made in China today, and have more fine details)

• Most major models and brands were made (but never Wheel Horse or Craftsman), (John Deere are most common and so less value).
