Yes, 408575 is the serial number, which means that it was built in October, 1971. The serial number is not model specific, so that could be any of the Series 6 Cub Cadets, 86, 108, 109, 128, 129, or 149. It cannot be a 169 because they did not start being built iuntil 1974 at serial number 506737.

The first seven numbers are kind code numbers. I believe the model number can be derived from the kind codes. Paul B. should be along shortly to clear the mud.

Here is a list for the kind codes:

Model Codes:

0036 = 73
0037 = 106
0038 = 107
0039 = 126
0040 = 127
0041 = 147
0042 = 86
0043 = 108
0044 = 109
0045 = 128
0046 = 129
0047 = 149
0048 = 169
0050 = 800
0053 = 1000
0056 = 1200
0059 = 1250
0065 = 1450
0067 = 1650
0070 = 1650 (mod 856)
0203 = 147
0205 = 149 (vemeer mod 834)
0206 = 149
0207 = 86
0208 = 86
0209 = 108
0210 = 108
0211 = 109
0213 = 109
0217 = 128
0218 = 128
0220 = 129
0221 = 129
0222 = 129
0223 = 129
0224 = 149
0510 = 800 (hvc)
0520 = 800 (hvc)
0540 = 1000
0550 = 1000 (hvc)
0570 = 1200 (hvc)
0580 = 1200 (hvc)
0581 = 482 (ccc made for IH)
0582 = 582 (ccc made for IH)
0583 = 582 special (ccc made for IH)
0584 = 682 (ccc made for IH)
0585 = 782 (ccc made for IH)
0586 = 982 com. (ccc made for IH)
0587 = 1282 (ccc made for IH)
0588 = 982 com. (ccc made for IH)
0589 = 982 com. (ccc made for IH)
0590 = 1100
0591 = 482 w/gd
0592 = 682 w/gd
0593 = 682 w/hydraulics
0594 = 782 w/hydraulics
0595 = 982 w/hydraulics
0596 = 582 special
0597 = 482 (ccc)
0598 = 582 (ccc)
0599 = 582 special (ccc made for IH)
0600 = 682 (ccc made for IH)
0601 = 782 (ccc made for IH)
0602 = 982 com. (ccc made for IH)
0603 = 1282 (ccc made for IH)
0604 = 982 com. (ccc made for IH)
0605 = 982 com.
0606 = 782D (ccc made for IH)
0610 = 1250 (hvc)
0630 = 1250 (hvc)
0660 = 1450 (hvc)
0670 = 1650 (hvc)


0606 = 782D (CCC continued the Kind/Code system for the Red IH Cub Cadets produced between 1981 & 1985.

0710 = 1572


The list shows that model to be a 108.

Hope this helps.

A little more info to pass on.

The first 3 numbers are always 205 for a cub cadet.

The U stands for USA (where it was manufactured) :D .

The kind codes weren't used from the Original up to the 125. After that, they were used in the serial numbers.

So...
205 = Cub Cadet
0043 = 108
U = USA
408575 = 10/71

That makes her exactly 40 years old and the first year for the 108 model?

Steve,
That's correct. The 108's are great tractors. Well, any cub cadet is a great tractor. I'm kinda partial to the older IH built ones with cast rearends. :lol:

Paul,
I must say that I've learned quite a bit about cub cadets and their history from reading a lot of posts over the past 5+ years on this forum as well as others. Quite a bit of that information was garnered from your posts as well as other cub experts. Just wanting to give credit where credit is due! :D A big thanks to Paul! :wink:
