Going to pick up an 1863 Cadet next week with mower and snow blower. Its been sitting for years . Hopefully it runs and drives to load on a trailer. Taking a winch just in case. The snow blower has a problem with the gears I am told so he is throwing it in free. I currently have a 4110 JD with many attachments and a 955 Deere with a loader. When I found the Cub Its a want rather than a need. I just have to satisfy my curiosity. My first tractor was a 10 hp gear drive 1960s model Cadet. The mower did a great job with the lawn. It soon gave way to a twin cylinder Simplicity which was a huge improvement in power. Always looking to upgrade I purchased a Cub Low Boy with a sickle, mid mount mower, and dirt blade. Soon we looked for rural property as we built three homes in the city moving for more seclusion, another new home and huge storage building. Friends with John Deer equipment had me looking at the brand buying several new models. I retained the Low Boy and will add the 1863 to the fleet. Hopefully with some maintenance it will prove to be a favorite. Parts availability for an older model may prove problematic . Here's looking on the positive side.
