Charlie says I'm an INSTIGATOR.
With today's technology, do we really need daylight savings time?
My 1977 1450 cub stalls out after about an hour of use. I let it sit for about 15 min and it starts right up and runs great for another half hour and stalls again. it is not overheating. I love this girl but she is driving me crazy. Any ideas to fix would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Al
Good choice Ben! glad to see you now have it. i have a 71 and a 72, an almost diffrent animal. but as you see, there are alot of helpful tractor experts here. i have had a ih cc since i was about 8 or 9. 33 now, and i know what i got brother, and you do to! becareful, they are addicting!
She is mine, I pick it up on friday. I won the bidding at $615.05. I will post some more pics. when I get it home. Thanks again everyone.
well,good luck finding one that good at some box junk store! that set-up may pay for it's self in one snow season.
I get to drive around several counties in Northern OH on an almost daily basis. The Cubs I see on the front lawns usually look much worse than your photo, have no implements and have a cardboard sign with the very common price of $450 listed. You might take a look at your local Craig's List to see what others are asking--I think that's how the locals all end up with the same price over here!
Well heck if it looks even better in person think of it as how much will you spend on new box store junk and will you replace the box store junk in 3 years with another box store junk of another brand...
I did get to look her over today and took her for a spin. It started right up, no smoke, ran smooth. There are no leaks and it looks better in person than the pics. I will keep all you informed. Thanks for the help. There are no aux. hydro., but it does have hydro lift.
Yea, I got a good chuckle from it this morning!
Thanks, I know this is a well built machine. I am going to look at it later today. I was more curious as to what they are selling for. I will do all the maint. to it when it comes home.
Ben- the push blade used go for about 150.00 , weights and 2 link chains go for about 150.00 new. go check this stuff out man....i'd say its a very fair price. look it over well
Ben, go look at a brand new garden tractor, how it's built and what it's built of, thickness of the metal, take note of how much plastic is on it, and what the price tag says, Then with all that in mind, look at how that 1450 is built. Yeah it might not have a cup holder but you can buy an after market cup holder with the money you'll save. AND, after a few years your (note I said "your" ) 1450 will still be going strong while that brand new one that you didn't buy would have been worn out. Be sure to ask what work the dealer has done on it, ask them about the ISO mounts. If the dealer has not changed the Hy-Tran and filter see if you can get that done as part of the deal, or at least get the filter and enough Hy-Tran to do it your self.
Thanks for the input, I will try to go look at it this weekend. Would 600 be high, low or normal? It is at a dealer, he took it on trade, said he needs to get 600 out of it.
yea, keep in mind that these Ih cub cadets are the best on the Planet! that tractor right there will last you a life time,using good common- sence and preforming normal up-keep.just as they dont make a 67 ford 3/4 ton, same goes for that tractor.if ya like spending money, i would take the 67 over ANY new truck today! get what i'am say-in?

Hi, I am a newbe to here.I am looking at a 1450 in very good shape with plow, wheel weights and chains. No deck, no aux. hydrolics. What do these go for? Thanks
