Was that Cub Cadet a 100 or a 70?

 

It's neat seeing the various vehicles, trucks,etc., over there that we don't get to see here in the US.

 

Thanks for sharing the pictures.  They were great.

Yes it's my son Ewan's cc70, pretty rare here. Unfortunately he turned to the yellow side 18 months ago...

Nothing wrong with turning to the yellow side, but the CCs are a bit more complicated.  That 70 is sweet, btw.  Great looking tractor.

 

The 70 and 100 have that look about them, and they replaced the Cub Cadet Original and "fixed" the short comings the Original had, mainly eliminating the belt and drive pulley in the drive train and going to a full drive shaft configuration.  IH did this by flipping over the frame allowing the engine to sit lower therefore aligning it with the transmission.  The Original had the frame like the Wheel Horses did, with the angle down therefore the engine sat on top of the frame.  This meant the engine was too high to be inline with the transmission, so IH dropped a belt down to a pulley and attached the pulley to the driveshaft.  The 70 and 100 had the frame flipped up so the engine sat in between the angle iron lowering the engine inline to the transmission.

Unless you don't want them of course, in that case I'll bring some yellow and white tractors to keep Ewans company :D
