I read a post today about the Cub Cadet 1000 and recall seeing an older Cub that an Uncle of mine had many moons ago when I was a boy - I don't recall the model of it.
I see a ton of post around the internet on the Hydro Cubs, but tell me about these gear drive Cub Cadets. Does one have an advantage over the other? Are parts available for the gear drive Cubs? Any weak link on the gear drives? What would have motivated someone back in the day to choose the gear over the hydro machines? What is the bad and ugly about these gear drive cub cadets?
I'm kind of interested in maybe making a project out of one.
