I've started this thread to post photos of Dan's Cub Cadets. It will be an easy place to point people to that are looking for them. Here's a few to start with.

The first four are some that Dan posted to this forum years ago, that he took as he was building it.

These are some photos that I took on my first visit to Dan's place back in April 2000.

Here are some photos of Dan's Cubs at Blunier's first Plow Day back in April 2001. This set of photos were taken by Chris Bennett.

Paul, Dan never shared any drawings other than the sketch of the 4x4 drive train. I'll be posting more detail photos a bit later this evening.

EDIT: I should add that Dan used to collect Cletrac crawlers and decided he wanted to build a scaled down version. Around that time he picked up a Cub Cadet 100 and was impressed with the build quality so he used it as the starting point. If you do a google image search for "Cletrac HG" and look at the images you'll see the track design is very similar.

WOW, what beautiful machines. Also, what great photos! You really do us all a great service taking, keeping, and sharing photos!

Do you know if these Cubs still make it to any shows in the MN/WI area by chance?
