Hello everyone,
I'm new to this forum but not new to the hobby of vintage garden tractors. I grew up mowing on my grandfather's Cub Cadet 1450 and over the years have acquired not only that Cub but all the Cub Cadets that belonged to my family and more. I have a total of 11 Cub Cadets (and many of other brands also) and I'm always looking to expand the collection and help others within the hobby!

Welcome, Matt, and enjoy the forum. That's a huge crowd. Are they all in working condition?

Hi Cubbie, 7 of them are in working condition and the others range from needing minor repairs to full on basket cases but certainly restorable.
Hello Matt, That's awesome. Can you tell us how many there are in your entire collection?

At the moment I'm down to about 40 garden tractors in total. Brands range from Cub Cadets to Case and even a Copar Panzer!
Holy cow, that's incredible. How much space do you need to keep them?

Lots of space hahaha. They're scattered around between different sheds and garages and some at the parents house next door. They support the hobby and help out where they can which is awesome.
Please don't start their engines together.😊 Can you pick one as your favorite?

That's tought to pick a favorite because they all have certain things I like about them but I'd say my favorite is the Cub Cadet 1450 from my grandfather. I grew up using that tractor and have a photo of myself standing beside it when I was around 4 or 5 years old.

Not sure anyone can believe that - maybe you should post that pic! :cubwinker:

Well, that's the best accessory attached only to your Cub Cadet 1450. Did I ask for the photo? @glippert did.🙂
