I just brought home a cub cadet. I've been trying to buy one for a while.

Needs work. The PO bought a new regulator that has not been installed. The wiring (all 4 wires) look messed up.

It did start and run well enough to drive itself onto the trailer.
A bit of smoke from the motor, but could be due to the 2yr old gas.

Has hydraulic lift.
Mower deck is ruff. One of the spindles has some play in it.
The snow thrower looks old and solid but does not appear to have been used a lot.

It's missing the linkage between the PTO lever and the mechanical PTO. Not sure what the missing parts look like. Is it easy to convert this PTO to electric?

Will get pictures at another date, but here are the pictures from the ad:

GREAT find! My trim/small area mower is a 109 and I really like it. The rod for the PTO clutch is just a simple rod with a 90 degree bend on one end and a threaded turnbuckle on the other end for adjustment. I wouldn't change to an electric clutch because they are expensive and the manual clutches work great and last forever with very minimal maintenance.

Nice 109! There isn't a way to mount an electric PTO to these.S/G pulley is in the way. For the PTO linkage, I got a screen door brace with the turnbuckle in the middle and used it.
Here is a color wiring diagram in case you need it.


I hope the new regulator is the correct one, there are several different types.

Nice looking tractor. I wish we lived closer as I have 2 very nice decks of which you could have your pick. They are off of a 129 and a 127. Too nice to go to the Iron pile.

The PTO is incredably easy to adjust. when you do get the turn buckle and the rods remember that when the lever pushes the button on the clutch in its disengaged and when its the lever is off the clutch its ingaged. Once thats done its nice and you just throw the lever forward and away it goes. No instintanious thing like an electric clutch. I think those put to much stress on every thing.

Nice Cub, and I agree, the JD seat is screaming to come off!

Enjoy your 109. I have a 123 and really like it!
