I am not familiar with Cub Cadets at all. I know apparently the 125 is a Hydro, I was wondering if any of yas have had one or messed with one. I am looking at one and haven't decided if I would like to get it or not. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I guess it don't much matter because I am more then likely bringing it home with me tomorrow. Here are a couple pics. It basically just needs paint. The guy has replaced everything mechanically, even put all new spindles and bearings in the mower deck, new dash, had the seat upholstered. It is hydrostatic drive and also has hydro lift.

Don't know much about them either, but I do know that aux. hydro lift unit is worth quite a bit.

I guess basically how strong the hydro is on them, I know the standard gear cubs were the way to go for pulling but I was also wondering if the hydro would be strong enough on one of the 125's to give it a shot pulling? I have my eyes on a 122 also that has puller written all over it but for yard work mowing I really like the hydro and if I get a snow blade and snow blower for it the hydro lift would make it nice.

Well, your right ,for pulling the geared cubs are more sought after.The hydrostatic pump used was a sundstrand.That same design was used for over 30 years ,so it must have been pretty good.Were your thoughts just to try it once to see what it would do, or were you going to do a lot of pulling with it ?I would find a geared one if I was going to do much pulling.

I think what I may do is get the hydro just because it has the auxillary for the lift also and use it for mowing and plowing once I get a blade for it and maybe get a second cub to use for pulling.

The cubs of that day ALL had strong drivelines, hydro or gear. The model # designates hydro or gear. Odd ending numbers are hydro...even are gear. 125 is hydro, 126 is gear.
Just looked at the pics...it has a rare hydraulic pump option. The hydro may be ported too, but the lift for this is ran off the independent hydraulic pump.

I am going to look at it tonight and I have been on the phone with this guy a good bit and he seems like a decent guy. If I get it that will make two sets of those hydraulic lift units that we will have. Dad's 800 that we got had one also that is in great shape. I will more then likely get it and I also have my eyes on a 122 that is about 2 hours away but I at least seen pics of it LOL
