The one Tahoe posted had a peerless 633 with stretched axles and looks good, but not sure how much it could carry on a 3ph without bending the tubes. I guess it was build more for show than go

 

it's got a 6.5 Hp HF predator, doubt it was built to work.

Other than running a 40" mower deck, it would surprise you what that kind of work that little engine could do coupled to that 6 speed tranny.

Yea, lower gears it would probably do okay, not the Onan that came on it though.

6.5 horse is plenty to pull a tractor,human, and run a 5 foot mower deck. Just ask the folks at David Bradley MFG.

That would probably be the equivalent of a 10hp now. I put a 18hp on the 136" batwing I built. You couldnt cut a hay field at 15 mph, but it did just fine at mowing the yard at 5mph

Sometimes I think the only reason for all the horsepower manufacturers put on machines is to have an impressive sticker for the consumer.  I mowed with a 46" Craftsman rider with 18HP Kohler for 19 years.  The only time the engine even sounded like it was working a little was in very tall, thick grass.

I know you already have a 106 to start with.  But I think you would be further ahead and it would be easier to get a Cub Cadet that used the round fenders on them.  They already have a pan seat and the frame rails are smaller. A 71, 72, 73 or 100 would be what I'd choose from.

We agree and wish we had one of the models you listed.  We are still searching, but haven't found one, except the ones that way too expensive.  We haven't done anything to the 106, so it's not to late to find a better Cub Cadet.  The 106 is in stock factory condition and has been stored indoors.  If any of you know where we can find a 71.72.73, or 100 we would be very interested.

This is the 106 we bought from Craigslist.  It's been the only Cub Cadet we have found.  Sure wish we could find a 71,72,73, or 100 for the 8N replica.

 

The 106 is in such good shape that we really hate to tear it apart.  What do you think this 106 is worth?IMG_0626.JPG IMG_0629.JPG IMG_0630.JPG IMG_0631.JPG IMG_0632.JPG IMG_0633.JPG IMG_0634.JPG

:iagree:

 

That is WAY to nice of an original survivor to tear apart or modify!  It needs a home in a collection.

If you don't mind my asking what did you pay for the 106?

Sure would like to see pics.  The 8N seat just doesn't look right

The full size tractor seats are too tall for the look your after,the seat on the JD although original looks out of place being full size,the pic of 3 seats has a medium full size tractor seat on top,the pic from side View shows how low a profile they got,it's shorter,narrower and nowhere near as tall,the pic of the cast seat is one of the bigger ones,I have cast seats that are smaller(somewhere)and might be of consideration,my 29 Farmall regular has a small cast seat

Poppyshoppe and I have decided that we haven't decided on anything.  Considering not using the Cub Cadet 106.  Still looking for another Cub Cadet.  Considering how and what to use from the  AwesomeHenry kit.  

 

We bought a wagon at TSC to use the chassis for the hay wagon.  (Merry Christmas to us)  Great deal there right now on the black $149 wagon.
