Hello everyone. I have not been on here for quite a while but I used to be a very regular member. I still have my restored model 86, but I have not done any other IH projects since. I sold my 1450 long ago and replaced it with a zero turn. Life got busy and I needed to get work done more efficiently.
What brings me back is some sad news for me: my father-in-law passed away suddenly on 4/4 from a massive heart attack. My mother-in-law can't afford to keep the farm and so we are going to sell off a bunch of stuff. This is where it will become interesting for you guys.
We will have an Original, a Model 86, and two other IH Cub Cadets for sale. One of them has a tiller and a creeper gear installed. I still need to go through, take photos, check model and serial numbers but I wanted to give everyone a heads up. I know we have a set of wheel weights and a couple of mower decks as well. I'm sure we will find more as we begin the process of cleaning everything out.
Oh, there is also a Farmall Cub with a sickle bar that he used to cut a small hay field with every year. That will also be going up for sale most likely. As soon as I have all the info, I will post them in the classified section.
Rich, welcome back. So sorry to hear about the loss of your father in law. :(
