Hi everyone I am a 1966 international harvester cub cadet 122 12 hp. I still retain my original power plant which is a cast iron block kohler k301as 12hp electric start. Some other specs are a 3speed transmission with a high and low manual lift 23x8.50x12 rear tires 16x6.50x8 tires I have a weight of 800 pounds. I was born in Louisville Kentucky in February of 66 I was sold as a basic no frill machine I was $905. Most of my history is a blank so we will start where my history is know. I was purchased by Ron in 2001 or so to help with yard work I was used for that for several years until I was having issues staying running so I was parked . After several years of sitting my current owner thad say the benefit of using me so I was pulled out of my parking spot. I have received TLC and have been extremely useful for my current owner on the 4 acres I have plowed dirt, snow mowed the lawn pulled trailers around the yard. I still ware my work clothes and will wear them proudly as I am used weekly for some yard work .I have had several accessories added to me. They include headlights and taillight which was a $31.25 option, wheel weights which was $12.75 option I also have a spring assist. My other options include creeper gear which was $45 option also I have 3 point hitch which was a $14.50 option also high flotation front tires which was $11 option and also a sleeve hitch adapter which was $12. I also have several other attachments brinly tt100 which is a $22.50 attachment also I have a brinly pp100 plow which was $55.00 option. Some other attachments include brinly cc 525 cultivator which was $48 attachment also a 38inch mower deck which was a $139 attachment. all that added up would have been 1,296 dollars in 1966 that would be 9,639.51 in 2016 as you can see they were expensive but they were your precursor to your sub compact today. They were built to except ground engaging attachments if you want a vintage tractor but do not have the space to keep a big farm tractor consider a vintage garden tractor. Thank you all for your time.
