I think a section on major IH dealers across the country and their histories, and some pics of then and now of the same locations would be great as well.
If you own 1 tractor you have a interest
If you own 2 tractors you have a hobby
If you own 3 tractors you have an addiction
Anything over that..well your incurable! :lol:

I agree with Don as I have one of the last 50 Cubs made. It would be nice to know the history of the end of it all.

maybe an index the talks about and details changes to the cub over the years. A restoration resource. What lights are correct for which year. changes to the engine and or carburetor and year introduced
When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!

Not to be contentious, but the Cub Cadets and other garden tractors from the other brands are a lot more than lawnmowers. They can almost do as much work as a Farmall Cub, just maybe on a smaller scale. Even on a Farmall Cub, I don't know if I want to be following a John Deere 430 garden tractor with a 15 plow, it will leave a deep furrow.

Having said all that, I can understand just wanting a book devoted to the Farmall Cub itself. I would be all for that.

I love visiting any of the Cadet groups on Facebook and calling my 782 a “lawnmower.” Usually throws everybody in a tizzy! :mrgreen:

But yeah, they are lawnmowers. And sadly Ken’s last Cub book had way too many pages devoted to them. (Not a criticism, just an observation.) Hopefully this one will cover the actual tractors in more detail!

The history of the Cubs and the plant has always been of interest to me.
A visit to the Wisconsin Historical Society might turn up information that is not available on their website or anywhere else.

I agree! More info about the Louisville Plant would be great!

It's ironic as I had a couple of people recently tell me that a Cub is only good for mowing.

Equipment that was made for a Cub but by others like Gaylott or Roseman. Too bad TM sold the brochures they had on their site. I think Rudi bought them but kind of tough to ask him.

Also restored and correctly painted and decaled fast hitch stuff would be cool.

Same with the different planters.

Ken if you put half the stuff in this book that has been suggested it's going to look like one of the old time unabridged dictionaries. :shock: Maybe we all can find the stands they used to display them on to display your new Cub book! :lol:

I would be interested in the early concept, design & marketing of the Cub. Evolutionary changes as well as all of the different implements produced by International Harvester & the aftermarket. No story would be complete without a mention of the Cubfest phenomenon.

We held a Farmall Cub plow day on a local farm. During one of the breaks we found out that the farmers father had been the chief boiler operator at the Chicago Works. He was sent to Louisville to supervise the firing of the boiler in the new plant. His friend became the chief boiler operator @ the Louisville works.
