Cub Cart..?

Recommended Posts

MPH
I got this photo from an eBay ad for a Cub Cadet vacuum. The cart is supposed to be a Cub Cadet #2. Does this cart look familiar..? Did Simplicity make carts for Cub Cadet..? Did Cub Cadet make carts for Simplicity..? Did a third party supplier make carts for both..? http://home.att.net/~herb.niewender/cubcart.jpg

Herb, I'll bet your third party theory is right. Recently a very knowledgable John Deere type told me hydraulic pumps and control gear were made by vendors specializing in hydraulics. Possibly J-D and Simplicity pumps were made by the same vendor, why not the cart too??

It's hard to tell from just this picture, but I don't think this one is the same as a Simplicity cart.... 1) this one doesn't appear to have the additional, external frame arms that allow the box to tilt, like the Simplicity one does... 2) this one doesn't seem to have the curved tongue either... I don't know whether Simplicity actually made their carts, or had them made to their specifications, but they were selling carts as being their own back into the early 50's if not even further back. (That's as far as I can know for sure, 1953, I think is the age of the first literature I've seen) They sold carts with seats on them for use as sulkies with their walkers.... http://www.simpletractors.com/operation/cart4_small.jpg
