The International Cub Cadet 70 was built by International Harvester from 1963 to 1965 in the Louisville, Kentucky, USA factory. It features a 7 hp (5.2 kW) Kohler engine.

Model History Edit

For Company history see
Main article: International Harvester

The 7-hp International Cub Cadet 70 was based on the original Cub Cadet and used the same Kohler K161 single-cylinder air-cooled engine and International 3-speed transmission. However, there were major changes: a redesigned frame and straight-through driveline from the engine to the transmission, eliminating the V-belt drive of the original model.
