Does anyone out there have a red Cub Cadet from the late 70's or early 80's? I was looking at a Cub Cadet book at the bookstore, and saw a picture of some, made near the end of the IH years. I have seen some older yellow/cream ones, but never a red one in person. Just curious.

Red Cub adets

Ingersoll444 When Cub cadet became its own company from 1981 to1985 they still produced Red Cubs to be sold at IH dealers until the Case IH merger So the last year of the RED Cub cadet production is 1985 the 1981 to 85 models will have a tripple C emblem on them instead of the IH emblem on the front Grill. The Cub Cadet corporation was owened Jointly by MTD and IH from 1981 until 1985 when MTD became the sole owner of the Cub Cadet corporation

I bought it new from our local IH dealer. My dad used to deal with the current owner's dad, and later, the current owner. They have to be one of the oldest IH dealers in the state. (or whatever they call themselves now) They have a great parts dept. and helpful staff. They still sell the new cub cadet lines as well as Kubota & some others. Along with the Case IH / New Holland full size lines.
