    My offbrand worker

    I just wanted to share a few pics of my 1973 International Harvester Cub Cadet 149. This was sitting in the woods when I adopted it for Free! needless to say it was not in the best condition. I really had a great time getting it running again and freshening up the paint. I learned a ton. This is my go to for snow plowing with the hydro lift and dive. I also use it for towing the cart. I figure if it lasted 40 years I probably cant hurt it.

    OMG!! She is absolutely gorgeous (if I may us a particularly feminine adjective)! Wow! I am colorblind when it comes to beauty. Wish she was sitting beside my '59 Impala!

    Those old Cubs seem to last forever. I have a 107 that I bought used in 1982. It has served me well. Put a 12HP engine on it several years ago.

    I have it mom's place now for winter snow removal.

    Great job

    That's a great restoration job. Those were almost bullet proof tractors so you invested your time well.

    Enjoy it.

    I like the older Cub Cadets myself as they are pretty much bullet proof. I really like hearing that starter/generator turn that Kohler engine over. Great score!!!!!
