Anyone have these books & what's the difference in them

Postby T-Mo » Mon May 29, 2017 7:19 am

I found two books on the Cub, both from the same author and both seem to be similar. So, my questions are, has anyone read these books, and what are the differences, if any? If there are differences, which one depicts the Cub better with more information? Thanks.

Don't know. Looks to be the same book, only updated. First one published in 2002, the second, 2006. A switch in cover design on the second book to the Cub Cadet would have more appeal to that market than the first book. :wink:

You might check out your local library, they may have a copy of one or the other.

Amazon isn't very helpful with their descriptions. The obvious answer, take it in the spirit intended :lol:: The red book is for red Cubs and the yellow book is for yellow Cubs.

Seriously, there is some overlap but the red book emphasizes '47-'64 while the yellow book emphasizes '64 up. Even the "overlap" parts have additional information. Having both won't disappoint you.

If you have one Cub and it is a later model, I'd be inclined to start with the yellow book. Otherwise (including you with no Cubs), I would lean more towards the red.

This.

I have them both. They have provided me many hours of enjoyable reading.
