I would like to nominate my 1972 Cub Cadet 108. I am the third owner of this tractor and have had it since 1993. The fellow I got if from never got to start it. He lived next door to me and as soon as I saw it there, I had to have it. The paint is all original, except the hood and wheels. A clutch had been installed just before the other fellow bought it. I am not positive, but I believe the right front tire is original. I changed out the rears to 23X10.50's as the others were splitting at the sidewalls.

Since I only have the 48" mower for it, it's main duties are mowing and pulling a trailer. At some point, I would like to have a CC 3-point hitch for it so I can use some of my other implement with it.
The K 241 (10 HP) has been faithful, I have only had to put a new governor gear in it. It uses a small amount of oil, but that is to be expected from a tractor that turns 39 this November.
The black on the hood is Rustoleum Rust Reformer. I hope this summer to get it repainted, and maybe some new decals.

My entry is my 1972 MF14. I got it in Oct 2009. Last summer I gave it
a resto. I also redid the deck and snowblower for it. The 14hp Kohler in it
runs good and strong, and starts even in the cold of winter. I also adapted
a Haban 416A Sickle Mower to it. That attachment still amazes me. It
works great, and if you take your time and don't get too rammy, it'll
chew down inch and a half dia. sapplings. The 3pt hitch is off a MF1450,
which is the newer version of this machine. I had to build a standoff to make
it fit.

The rubber on it is, 26x12x12 Tru Powers, and Vredstien V61's on the front.
It is, used to knock down the sides of the laneway, and a bit of snowblowing.
At first it was a bit intimidating having that Sickle Mower chewing away, right
beside you, but I got numb to that, and look forward to taking it out to do it's job.
