I've got one of those rare 149s that still has working rectangular rear taillight covers. I haven't been able to find replacement lenses for a long time for my other 149. Anybody know of anyone with old stock or newly manufactured replacements?

Wow. I should take them off and save or sell them for a show tractor.

Yeah, kinda scary. I've lost, and gone searching my lawn, several times for one of mine that got knocked off on the lilac bushes or evergreens. Slight damage on base, so falls off easily now. :oops: I'm going to clip on some LED units inside the cover and hot-melt glue it on. In the meantime, the LED units will reduce the electrical draw. I did the same for the headlights - complete replacement headlight mounting panel with LED's, LOTS more light, way less current draw. That way, if I ever want to do a full resto, I haven't messed it up, and can go back easily. (really need to make a variable-voltage power supply, so I can properly adjust the regulator). Crazy question, is/was there any other equipment of the era that used the same tail lights?

Hi,
Check these out, they are as close as you will ever find,
Peterson V2546R
I appreciate the suggestion but they are too small. They measure 1x1x2 whereas the originals are 3/4x2x4.

copy and past in your browser, dimensions are near the bottom of the page, they have some wrong info near top, I have these on my 149, the lens will fit the original cub base. They look original.

Don't waste your time folks! Here's the end result of my last 3 orders with these goofs! Even if you call before going online to place an order, you still get this the next day! They are a real joke!

Hi Cub Cadet

An order you recently placed on our website has had its status changed.

The status of order #12762 is now Refunded

I googled the p/n and found a supplier for them at Trailers Unlimited in Bend Oregon. Four pieces for $18.32 plus shipping. Hope they work.

I bought mine about 4 years ago online but can not remember where, i also bought 4 of them at that time and have 2 in the package for spares as I will be keeping my 149.
I see a lot of places show no longer available or out of stock, may have quit making them, I really hope you receive the correct item.
Good Luck

Well I got a phone call a few minutes ago from Trailers Unlimited. They didn't have any of the lenses in stock and they have been discontinued by Peterson. So the search continues.

Rock Auto has one left if that helps. Somebody must know they’re obsolete. A guy on flea bay has them for $25.00 each.

Check out Levine Auto and Light Trucking. I called and they said they had 15 in stock. I bought 4 so there should be 11 up for grabs. With the shipping the lot of four are costing me $24.87. I'm happy.

Original Cub Cadet tail lights and lenses are no longer available. Peterson marketed a red side light that fit the original light base for the Cubs. Peterson has discontinued it so all that is available now is left over stock in the hands of some of the retailers.

The one thing that is bad about those are there is no reflector incorporated in the lens prism.
