Cub Cadet is 55 years old this year! In 1960-61 I.H. introduced their first model as we call it the Original. So let's see those Originals! Restored or original patena~ The last two pics are from a very good friend of mine, the rear PTO ,collar spindle ,ser#6XX is a rare bird. The last pic is a 4 digit tractor. Like myself neither of us currently own a Original.

What attachment would the rear pto operate? Is it 540 rpms. And is regular size or a smaller sized shaft , like a tea20 ferguson tractor. ?
Nice looking tractors, would be nice to have one of the older cub cadets.

A belt pulley for one...or a reverser by Hub City to achieve correct rotation for the implement. Shaft is a 10 spline 31/32"...standard is 1 3/8" 6 spline. I think it is 540 rpm...?

Well seems the only photo of the one that I have that was all together recently was posted before somewhere on here.

 

 

It is the one that is now all apart in the "O" model trans-axle cleaning post.

 

It started as a 63 and is going to have a 62 reducer casting when it goes back together. (Thanks BNK)

 

Several years ago I got the itch for an "O" after visiting BNK. The search led me to another Cub nut in KY where I picked up a 4 digit that appears to need lots of work, and another that appears to need even more work. I then went to the Bob Scott auction looking for parts and somehow came home with the one above running, factory lights, and with a new battery for my parts budget of $200. I didn't even have a way to get it home (remember I went looking for parts) Called a son who lived 30 miles away who borrowed a friends trailer and we moved it to his house for awhile. Well it finally got to my place and it is quite a mish-mash of components so probably won't upset any purists in the rebuilding process. Since it looked easier than the other two and I wanted to take an "O" to Daniels Plow-day, that is where I started. Currently the rest of the story and photos can be picked up in "O" model Trans-axle Cleaning.

Sorry for my computer illiteracy,

My wifes grandfather had one of the first cadets in the county. He was a dairy farmer and used the PTO to drive an elevator to lift hay bales into the mow of his barn.  I know of a farmer who has a 212 John Deere and has a large tank and his deere mounted on a hay wagon.

He has mounted a pump on the deere to pump chemicals into the tanks on his planter.

Here's a couple pictures of my 1961 Original I just finished giving a "face lift". Started out rather rusty, and ended up shining pretty good. Complete disassembly, sandblasting everything but the differential and engine. Sent the IH bolts out and had those zinc plated, rather than painting them. 

I do have the original oil bath air cleaner for it, but for now I'm running the dry element air filter. I did everything in house other than the zinc plating. First time using a HVLP air gun.

Great thread, enjoy seeing others Originals...

Looks great. A lot of patience to do some thing like that. Wish I had the patience for it.
Do you know if the rear pto could be added after the tractor was bought new. Was it an available option.
Nice work.
I don't have any thing that looks that good.

Noel.

yes it was an option,dealer installed. I am no expert on the cadet but I think the pto was 1000 rpm counter rotating. (correction pto ran 514 rpm)
as I recall the dif is the same as the cubs.

Todd, do you remember me? Back in the day when I was on OCC as member ID tractor2nv you was doing a mod to your 100 to assist you in clutching your tractor. I remember you having a few CC's back then (never seen your Cub Farmall until  I came to this site)...your collection has grown my friend! And mine has shrunk, wish I could have kept several but still have 5.

 

What you have done to your 4 digit Original is very,very nicely done! I never had head lights on any of mine. We very much miss the last one we had, it just don't feel right not having one in the line up but glad what we have and use.

 

Is there any other Cub Cadet user's out there that subscribe to Cadet Connection magazine? If so I was shocked to read about the passing of a great Icon in the IHCC Mr. William "Geezer" Deturuk from Oakmont, PA. Very well known back in the day of the I.H. Registry and after the "domain" crash, later known on the Cub Cadet Collector's forum. He (Geezer) had a Original with a M&W 9 speed among his collection. Also a fond desire of I.H. dealer decals ( I contributed 2 to his collection, both dealers from Tennessee). He will be sorely missed.

Here is a pic of our "O"...

Now the engine is at the re-builder and should be done this year and at some point I will be in full rust removal. The drive-line is all done but waiting on getting the engine back!!!

Yes I do remember, that was back in 2010 when I was getting my feet wet to the GT's. Came a long way since then...

Adding to the collection (addiction) regularly. Just picked up three orphans last weekend that needed a new home. A 149, 107, 106, nothing special, just some ones "lawn art"...

I picked the F-Cub up a couple years ago for the wife to cut our food plots, good little tractor. Glad we caught up after all these years, you have a good memory.

Thrilled to be chatin' again with you my friend. I went off the net for awhile mainly on the OCC, CCC forums and then a friend turned me on to this site. Most all of these members on this kind site don't mind what tractors we use. What is interesting to me here also is how they use them, what they do to them, how they care/trouble shoot them and all in between. There are times I am just blown away with the attachments they have to go with their herd. My first love will always be I.H. and God willing I'll always have one. I am thrilled that I have met back up with a few friends and made some new ones. I have had a few non I.H. tractors in the past, some for me a mother to work on or price for parts and/or hard to find. You will certainly find me here in the Cub Cadet section and out there in the other brands. What else is cool here is the off topic, resto tips, tools, safety...the list goes on.

 

I strongly believe out of all of the models of Cub Cadet's that has come my way is the 1961-63 Original. 149 second and the 108 is third. My very first restoration was a 1250, second a 124/125 (hydro converted to manual) and third a 1961 Original.

But I always enjoy seeing nice original patena tractors.

This load came by my work several months ago, gentleman said he took them to the last Red Power Roundup last year. I seen two collar spindle tractor's out of the four. Notice the dual stick manual lift/angle on the one machine! The red one is suppose to be a prototype before production began, I could not get in to take a peek at the ser# to verify which should register a 4XX ? Wish I could have verified a "Holy Grail" tractor...

Holy crap! I just noticed that the tractor with the blade, the axle looks to be installed backwards!
