I-H OR MTD?

Postby johnbron » Wed Jun 29, 2005 2:53 pm

I just seen this add in tomorrows trade paper and am wondering if this model is an I-H Cub? I have never seen a Cadet in this area. I would not mind getting an I-H Cadet.


CUB CADETTE 147 with mower and rototiller and hydrostatic Drive. 824-3318.

http://www.ihregistry.com lists the 147 as an IH built Cub.

"NOT DEAL OF THE DAY"


Well, I just called the Guy about it and he wants $2,450 for it. (Gulp) :roll: :shock:
So that means I dont need a new toy.


Thanks for the info Eugene. :P

That price is about what 5 of them should cost. :lol: .

147 is a 14 hp, narrow frame Cub Cadet built from 11/69 to 8/71. They had an electric lift for the deck, that is usually broke by now, and it is very pricey to repair - all the parts/gears are not available. Most people convert them to a manual lift when the electric one gives up.

Thanks Paul, From your info I am glad I did not get it for a 5th of his asking price. If I come across another Cadet you will be the one I will ask about it.
