Ever Heard of a Danco Loader for a Cub Cadet?

| 12/6/2016 1:00:00 AM


In the April 2004 issue of Farm Collector there is an article on the International Harvester Cub Cadet. There is no mention of the IH Cub Cadet with a Danco hydraulic front loader. We have talked with a number of Cub Cadet dealers and none have ever heard of a loader for the IH Cub Cadet. Some dealers have told me I was mistaken. We have a 1973 Cub Cadet with a Danco hydraulic front loader that has a hydraulic lift for the lawn mower. We would like to hear from anyone else who has one. This has been in storage for more than 30 years and starts right up when I put gas in it. We also have the manuals for both the Cub Cadet and the loader!


I also have a Humphrey Rapid clover cutter made by Humphrey & Sons in Joliet, Illinois (patented Oct. 18, 1803). This machine was used on a fox farm to grind clover to be mixed with fox food and to enhance the fox pelt as the clover added protein.

We used to cut wild peppermint, put it in small bags and give it to spectators at antique engine shows.

I bought a cub 149 with a 36" Danco Bucket on it. Love this little machine because you can only make a loader so small...lots of bigger loaders out there but this is perfect. Mine Doesnt have a stiffener in the bucket. It does have cloth lines and not steel reinforced ones...mine has the factory danco box and the belly mower fits on with the loader frame on.
