New to the group, my families first rider was a Cub Cadet 70, that was 56 years ago. I am in the market for one just like we had. I have a line on one but am still looking. I look forward to taking advantage of all that is offered here. Regards!

Thanks, nice to hear from you. I live just South of Iowa City down towards Kalona. I am hoping to locate a 70 within a couple of hundred miles of me. I just want one that has all the correct pieces including fenders. Regards!

Brad, WELCOME!
Where are you at in WI.? My wife and I get up there quite a bit, she is from New Berlin. We did the big Badgerland steam show and also Garden Tractor show in Portage, lots of nice Cub Cadets there. I have a line on a 70 but it is over by Indianapolis, hope to find a closer one. Regards, Brad

Hey Brad - welcome aboard the best Cub Cadet Forum on the internet. I highly recommend touching base with David Schwandt, especially since he offered. He knows his stuff when it comes to IH Cub Cadets. He's got quite the herd and has restored many. I'm sure he'll be able to help you out as you're looking.

By the way, the Model 100 is really the same tractor as a Model 70 except the 100 has a 10hp Kohler while the 70 had the 7hp. There may be just a couple other quite minor differences like the steering wheel and mount.

And remember,
Old Cubs Never Die
They just find another resting place.

How nice does it have to be?
I would rather pay a little more and get a complete one, I am hung up on one with fenders. It doesn't have to run but should not need a lot to get it running, nothing that has been sitting outside forever. Tires should hold air. I found one over by Indianapolis that is suppose to have a decent motor asking price 550.00 it has fenders. I have seen the fenders for sale at 250 on up. Thanks!

Welcome from Maine. Still using my dad’s 1972 (though his first Cadet was a model 70). I’ve augmented my collection with a 1968 for snow pushing duty.
