Cub Cart..?

Recommended Posts

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

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
