Sold my 129 cub cadet today.   It was a feebee 6 or 7 years ago.  It was under a tarp tires rotted off.  Old timer in his 90's said he'd had the motor rebuilt at IHC dealer 10 year previous.  His son in law said he hadn't seen tractor move in 12 years.  Motor does run strong.  Different tires and hood, new belts and blades used it as my extra mower worked great.  

 

But i have couple other "extra mowers" and this one was off brand.  (1050 bolens are my others) So I let it go.  On plus side I have $$ to put towards other projects.  Also gave him the parts tractor I had so I have more room in the yard for new treasures.

Sorry to see you got rid of the one real tractor you owned.  :poke: :smilewink:

 

Not that I am saying much having sold my hydro Cubs (1450 and 149) a week or so ago, too.

Ben is so right, every collection needs a real tractor like a Cub Cadet. Mine has a Cub Cadet 102, and if I need more the Farmall Cub and Farmall 140 if really need more. Otherwise the Springfields are my toys. Trust me when I say you can only pull so much with a 400 pound tractor lol. Cub Cadets are fun machines, wish mine wouldnt ride the throw out bearing... Replaced the return spring but still have to lift with my foot...

By the way, did you at least sell the Cadet to a good home?

And which of your Bolens will be taking the new found funds for itself? Lol

The Cub went to a guy that already has a 582 cub.

 

I now have a mower deck for one of my 1050's.  The deck needs to be put back together.  It came partially disassembled.  This will now be my second mower.  I have 2 running 1050's, with a blade, snowblower, rotto tiller and now mower deck.  They are great second machines and work horses.  Handy to have around and fun to work with.

 

Hate to admit it.  I'm getting lazy as I get older.  I do like my JD 425 with full hydraulic lift, angle and diff lock when pushing snow.   The 54 inch mower deck makes short work of the yard.

I hate to admit it but I would like to own any 400 series JD...then I'd loose a lot of friends that love their "Ol Yeller's" blowing Kohler smoke~
