Cadet 1200

Postby Barnyard » Fri Jul 10, 2015 7:38 pm

Old fella down the road stopped by and asked if I would be interested in a Cadet 1200. I know nothing about them but the price sounded good. He said it always mowed good, but they had bought a Z turn and the 1200 has sat about 4-5 years and the carb sat with bad gas in it. He said it has always been kept inside. He also said he thought it was a Briggs engine, but from what I have seen they had Kohler engines.

Are these a decent mower?

Well the hydro-static transmission is a breeze to mow with...but my 1282 has a Kohler K301 engine and has been torn down twice. Once when the piston flew apart and once when it threw the rod. This second tear down is still not complete. :(

I just went over and took a look. It is a manual trans. It has definitely been kept inside all its life as it is a nice looking piece. Has the traction tires on back.

I have a cc1200 nice cadet. I added the rear disc brakes and the 1" front spindles and rims. The rims take the 154 front wheel bearings.
Nice tractor I like it. I have the correct 14hp Koehler engine for it the AQS Wide frame geared starter
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

David, I'm not familiar with these, but the seller said it was missing parts of the lift.

The lower part appears to be missing, easy to get.

Good looking 1200. And yes, once you start messing with them they definitely grow on ya.

Forgive my ignorance, as I am not a Cadet guy (yet). But, isn't that a Brinley hitch?

Well guys, in the Cub Cadet world, this creates as much discussion as what kind of oil to use!
IH called it the 3-point:
http://www.cngcoinc.com/pages/OemParts? ... 0017500031
(Bill is missing part #6)

Brinly made the “adaptors” that attach to the 3-point hitch (commonly a “U” bracket, early ones were a “Y” shape like the picture) and the attachments (like plows, or the box blade I fabricated to fit it.) attach to that.

Does that help?

Well, not really. I guess I'd have to see one with an implement attached to really understand.

Sorry Bill, getting a little off track here... :|

Don,

Of all the pictures I have I can't fine one (of mine) hooked up, hopefully this one I found on the internet will give you a better idea... It has a pin that goes through the implement holes and the Brinly adapter, connecting the two.
127plow.JPEG


The Brinly adapter has two straps that attach to a heavy pin that goes in the top cast piece of the "3-point hitch". That is what raises and lowers the adapter with implement attached via the lift handle (provided it is not elec. or hydro lift) and it is connected by a lift lever (heavy strap) to the cast upper part. (lift handle on the tractor moves the strap attached to the cast upper 3-point part with the lift pin raising the straps that connect to the adapter moving the attached implement) Now I am getting confused.. :lol: :?

I will show you at The Tug! :wink:
