The Case/Ingersol tractors are hydraulically driven, not hydrostatic. What that means is they have a higher flow and pressure in the system that allows the use of hydraulic power for cool attachments like a loader, back hoe, etc with out needed an aux. hydraulic pump. Hydrostatic drives have enough umph to raise and lower stuff like a front blade or snowblower a few inches, but can't match true hydraulic drive. IF the Cubs you are looking at are pre 1982, then they are IH Cubs. After that they are MTD Cubs. The older Cubs use the same rear as the larger Cub tractor (later known as the LoBoy) so they are EXTREMELY well built in that area. Both machines are excellent choices, maybe more attachment availibility with the Cubs because of the larger number of machines sold. But the Case/Ingersoll machines used the same attachment hook ups for decades with out any dimensional changes.
