Angry, (I hope not), welcome to the world of compacts. I'm not totaly familliar with the Cub Cadets of today, but in the past they have been one of the leaders from back in the 60's and 70's I guess I need a little refreshment on history. Did the Cub Cadets from the International Harvester days follow the IH farm equipment into the Case-IH organization or was the trademark name sold to someone else who now builds the Cadets? Hope you enjoy your tractor as much as the rest of us here do. WARNING!!, they get habit forming, soon other attachments will follow your Cadet home like a lost puppy. Frank.

Congrats on your purchase. I've had my 7000 series for almost 10 years without any major problems.

Hardwood,

I'm not sure when the connection to IH changed for the Cub. I have a 7234, (4WD 23HP) and I think it is a 1996 model. The 7000 series of that era, 19HP, 23HP, and 27HP were all Mitsubishi engine & drive train. Very tough, dependable tractors. They were produced in Japan like most all of the compacts, (Deere, Ford/New Holland, Kubota) but I believe they were assembled here in the US by Cub who is now owned by MTD. Those lines migrated I think to a 20HP, 26HP, and a 30, maybe the 36HP as well. Today they have a mix of gas or diesel and the Cub has a Daihutsu engine in some of them. They also have a couple of bigger models that are re-badged Kiotis in the typical yellow Cub colors, 40 - 45HP range or something like that. Oh yeah they also have one now with a Cat diesel engine in it, I'm not sure what drivetrain it has. That is a quick dump from my readings, I think it is fairly accurate. Cub has a site complete with prices if you want to look further at the compact line. Just a side note some of the Cub models that were built in the mid to late 90's like mine with the Mitsubishi drivetrain are now being built by Mahindra and look almost identical to my Cub but are Red in color. I assume the casting, and rights, etc. were sold to them by Mitsubishi. Enjoy.
