    This Cub Cadet 125 was my Pre-Drivers license means of winter income for many years. The JD's didn't come until I was Driving.

    Had a plow on the Cub like yours, and later a single stage blower.

    My Dad just recently outfitted one of these to snow duty. He has the blade and a single stage (shown) for it. Lots of weight too. Wheel weights and liquid filled bar tread, along with a very heavy weight bar out back.

    What year is that little tractor, my Uncle had one similar.

    This is what I started plowing with. No trip mechanism made for some very rough plowing, and VERY sudden stops. I just plowed a few driveways around my grandparent's house (that's my Grandpa's old IH, it 'lives' at his house) The open cab (lack thereof) was also rough, glad I moved up to heat!

    Nice, that’s pretty deep snow! Especially for using a blade on it! I’ve got a ’74 JD 110 with a 42” blade and a ’64 Bush Hog V3-6 (garden tractor) with a 48” blade and a ’93 Wheel Horse 520H with a 36” single stage snowthrower. No I don’t plan on using them all at once LOL. Going to put wings on the JD to make it 52”. Gonna get lug tires and weights for it too. I have never found chains necessary (tried them once in a deep snow they do help a lot) for the snow we get so I figure I’ll just not use them and save accidentally tearing up a driveway. I found tractor lug tires work real well for me and I put as much weight on as possible. When the piles get too big or heavy to push I just back up 10’ or so, put it in 3rd gear and ram it, they usually get moving and if that doesn’t do it back up and take a smaller bite off of the side LOL.
    Impressive pics though looks good. I will try to dig up some of mine.

    Everyone -
    Nice pictures of your other machines. Besides the pictures of me plowing with that CUB 1250 hydrstatic, I have a wheel horse charger 10, a 16 hp wheel horse I think an 8 speed, and a cub cadet supergarden tractor. The super garden is 19 hp, the specific model name is 1950 I belive. It has a 3 point hitch, and a 42' blade that is hydraulic left,right,up and down. I can't wait to get that running. Also I have a cub cadet 169 that is hydraulic up and down. All of my tractors range from between 1969-1978 or so. If anyone wants to know more about cub cadet's just e-mail me at chip99flanni@aol.com, my dad has alot of knowledge on that subject. TIM
