Ever Heard of a Danco Loader for a Cub Cadet?
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.
