Hello, my name is Ken and I'm in Mid-Michigan.

My dad has fallen ill with cancer and I've been helping my parents with upkeep of the yard and whatnot. He's had this 1973ish Cub Cadet 149 for about 16 years and it's been a very reliable. His 1 acre yard has been cut once a week for the past 16 years, and he's plowed his large garden every year also. Not to mention the plow that's installed when the snow falls. He replaced the engine last year with a brand new Kohler 14hp and it runs better than ever. The tractor has some idiosyncrasies that I plan on working through, hopefully with the help of some of the more experienced folks on here.

Here's the 149, and my recent score from a friend, a LawnBoy 22261 Commercial self propelled mower. He gave it to me for replacing one body mount on his truck. :fing32:
