Jumped in feet first:

Postby randallc » Sun Jul 21, 2013 6:17 am

Another Craigslist victim, I had to jump on it. Been wanting on a IH Cadet for some time. Why? Don't really have the time or place to keep another one, but dad had one that was built like a tank, compared to my 1045. 1045 cuts very well and turns on a dime and I am pleased with it but you know what "want does."
Couple of weeks ago, Gary Charles agreed to go with me to Benton and we hauled back 3 non-runners. As the gentleman said, "dad use to run them."

The 1250 has a mower on it, a different coil and condenser and a much needed carb cleaning, runs and mows, the unknown model maybe a 109 or 149, with a blade (not IH) on it runs, was also needing a carb cleaning, and the 1000, a new coil, carb cleaning and it runs well but goes no where, because it does not have the clutch and drive shaft, so I'll be hitting Jpcubs up and looking for one. Two flat tires out of the bunch ain't bad. Big thing, me and Gary had a good day! I also bought a drill press and Gary bought a metal band saw. Usually it is Gary filling up the trailer - he probably would have bought a couple more items, but alas, we were running short on room.

Tomcat, if we had a little more time we would have had you to meet us. The guy in the boomdocks, Tony, did remember you, and yeah, in the sticks, you can go back a little further but you might not be able to find your way out.

Very nice, Randall. That should keep you busy for a while. If you get 'em up and running, bring one over to the NE OK Cubfest next Spring. I like those old Cub Cadets too.

Do I see a hub cap on the 109 (middle tractor on the trailer)? :D Bonus!

Randall are you guys trying to catch up with me, if not you have a good start. LOL
that looks like some Good picking.
I have a band saw just like the one you guys got, mine is over 21 years old and still works fine, and you know I have cut a lot of metal with it.

Stanton, yeah, two of the hubcaps appear to be in good shape.
Chief, You know when me and Gary get together, neither of us seem to have a lot of restraint.
Little work to do on all of them, but at least they are running.
