I finally got it! This cub trailer has been sitting in the landlords shed for a long time. I've asked him about it many, many times and the response was "I think I'll just keep it". So today he came up to me and asked if I wanted to trade a homemade toolbox cart frame for the trailer. As you can see I said sure to the deal. I sold the tool boxes off the frame for a profit and was going to keep the cart laying around for other projects someday. There couldn't have been more than $30 in steel in the thing so I was happy to trade it.
I've always wanted a cub trailer like this for a while, I just love the fenders I guess. Don't worry I'm not going to be selling off all my Bolens and switching to Cub cadet. Its just a nice piece to have in a collection.

Nate, I agree that those IH trailers with the fenders are very cool. I have been watching for one myself to put behind my "O".

That thing looks to be very straight.  Less than $30 worth of steel for a $200 IH #2 lawn cart.  I'd say you did pretty well.

Nice #2 trailer!

Some call them carts, owners manual calls them trailers. I go with the trailer. Nice either way :thumbs:

Thanks everybody! The nice thing is the wife can't complain about this one. Really didn't cost me anything and she can use it too.
Roughly what years were this made?

   I have one just like that!!!  Got it way up north near the Canadian border when we were on vacation 4 years ago.  try that on for size, explain to the wife why you need to buy a rusty old wagon while you are on vacation and then cart it all the way home :D  worst part is it took allot of rearranging to get that wagon into the camper for the ride home.

I like the trailer a lot. There's just something about the IH logo that makes the Cub stuff look so American. The problem I would have should it be restored or left as is. What are your plans. Congrats

I'm thinking for now it'll stay as is. Its got that fresh out of the barn look going for it the way it is which I almost like better than that nice shiny finish.

#2 carts were made from roughly 1970 to the early 80's when IH became CCC.
