When MTD bought out Cub Cadet in, what was it?, 1987; did they continue to use a Cub trans? If not what did they switch to?

I believe it was bought in 1981/82. Still used same differential until 1985/86 then made their own. I am not positive on that information. Maybe wrong. Noel

Just my opinion.

in 1981 IH sold off cub cadet to the cub cadet corporation CCC continued using the rest of the IH parts till they ran out ......they made 3 generations of tractors before MTD took over in the late 80s or 90s my 1812 in a 2nd generation CCC with alum rear but same hydro as a 782 and the rear is just as strong but it all started changing when the 1861-2-3s were being built.

This from the "Only Cub Cadets" website..... MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently
