The other day I picked up this old machine. First time I've seen an old Cub Cadet blower in person. It still runs and works too which is a plus. We don't get enough snow to justify having a snow blower and I mainly bought it for its engine. I'm tempted to keep it complete too but don't really have the extra room to store it. What would you guys do?

I'd offer it up to a collector before I took it apart. Maybe you can trade it for an engine like you want!

I would keep it, but I am in a location here we can get a lot of snow. Kenny had some good points.

That's what I'm currently doing, I have it advertised on a large Cub Cadet group on Facebook. I'll give it some time before I tear into it.

Definitely something you keep together!

Have a look at the gauge of steel on any new blower and you'll see why it should be kept together!

I'm sure you'll find a buyer

If memory serves me correctly, most of the snowblower engines used to have short cooling fins on the block compared to a conventional engine. So if you are considering using it for a project, you might want to keep it for a cold weather application because it may not dissipate the heat as efficiently for warm weather use.

That's too nice to part out Matt. I would hold on to it or trade / sale it to someone who wants it.

That looks about identical to my early 70's Ariens blower. Did CC build their own or buy them in?

Thanks for the tip. I'll have to compare it to the other engine that I have.

I'm hoping someone will want it but if it sits too long I won't keep it.

I'm not sure what they did. I do know that some IH lawnmowers were built by LawnBoy. I'll have to do some research and compare it to an Airens.

 

I'd restore that little GEM

 

I'm hoping some one will want to restore it. I personally won't and don't really have  a need for it.

That is a great machine! I have a 328. It has stood the test of time and abuse and works like a champ. I think you would be able to find a buyer for it.

You cannot buy anything that even comes close to quality now a days.

I looked at some pictures on Google and you could be right. I does look similar. I also had another guy tell me it could possibly be built by Jacobsen so I'll have to look into that too.

The teardrop sides and the box frame under the engine is what I thought looked similar. On mine right behind the blower, it can be split off the drive unit and other attachments used.

Further research found that it is an Airens built machine with some features unique to the IH machine.
