Oh, what we wouldn't give for a Time Machine to go back and stock-up on many of those fine pieces of iron !

________________

Seeing that DC-3 brough back some memories.
I rode in a DC-3 back in the late 50's when they were used as airliners. It was Ozark Airlines, flew from
Boise, Idaho to Kansas City, MO. Then I got in a little Aeronca Champ and flew it back to Boise and then to
Hardin Montana to deliver it to a church. Quite a flight, the plane wouldn't climb high enough to go over
the higher mountains so I had to fly through the valleys. Took me almost 3 days, flying about 65 MPH.
(Just some of the stuff I did when I was a young feller.)

Take note that the truck with all the Cubs on it is also an "International" brand truck. They had a very distinctive grille back in those days. I guess it makes sense that the tractor factory wouldn't use a Chevy or Ford truck when they made one of their own!

Most likely it was a commercial carrier hauling the tractors, not a part of IH. However from what I have been able to learn, you can be sure the local IH dealer hauled his equipment on IH trucks. I expect if a dealer bought any other brand, they would have gotten a "talking to" by the Blockman/Zone Manager for that area.....

I was personally "acquainted" with an R190 back in the 70's, and it probably didn't realize that trailer was there except on a hill. (It rode much better loaded) RD 450 6cyl gas engine in ours and used as a lowboy tractor. She didn't do anything in a hurry, lol. I know it was still used in that capacity until the mid 80's. (I had left the company by then) Built like a tank..

Hmmm, main deck gots a Mom's Attic for a pair of Cubs and seems to have a Papa's deck as well at the rear - two more. Along with the 4 in the tummy .. looks like 8 on the main deck to me. 8 on the top deck. Man that would be a nice load to have dropped in front of the pole barn :lol: Oh and can I have the truck and trailer too :?: :{_}:

I've tried to get my mind around just how the two fit in "Mom's attic" :? since the trailer hitch to the truck takes up about half of the vertical space. I have decided the front wheels have to have been removed and/or maybe even axle rotated/removed. I doubt the second deck is solid so I guess if there's an opening in the correct place the lower Cub's hood could stick up above the second deck into the open space under the top Cub. I guess that on Papa's deck the truck wheels and fender wells fall between the front and back wheels on the Cubs?

I saw a picture here on the forum a while back with I believe it was Cubs knitted together on a railroad flatcar. They were facing sideways and had the next Cub facing opposite and the right front wheel of it was under the pedals of the first Cub. So IH maximized the amount of tractors they could haul on a load. I always wondered if they drove the tractors into that position or craned them/slid them somehow?

Or maybe somebody just put the wrong number in the caption. :wink:

Indy,

it was too little, too late :(

Scrivet, they did use cranes to load flatcars based on pictures and video I have seen.

They even had a "Solar division" which developed and made products for NASA.

Their turbochargers for the 1206 Farmall and other big tractors were made by Solar. They made a lot of gas turbines for industrial applications.

It is a shame the didn't dump the construction division sooner, and hold onto Cub Cadet. I read somewhere that the lawn & garden business was one of the things that kept John Deere's head above water during the '80s. Of course, the time to really save IH was back in the late '40s and '50s when John McCaffrey came to power and IH was trying to sell refrigerators and TD 24 crawler tractors.

I recall the first time I boarded a Chinook helicopter up the rear ramp. I happened to look straight up just as I was inside. There was a red and black "IH" looking back down at me. It was on a Solar APU.
