Hard to believe that both the first Cub Cadet and Allis Chalmers garden tractors turn 50 years old this year! The Cub Cadet "original " with a 7 horse power Kohler engine was built by IH and sold from 1961 through 1963. The Allis Chalmers B-1 with a 7 1/4 horse power Briggs engine was their first garden tractor and was actually a repainted and rebadged Simplicity model 725.
A half century after their introduction a lot of these tractors are still around.
