Model History[edit | edit source]

For Company history see
Main article: International Harvester

The IH Cub Cadet model 71 is a narrow frame garden tractor.  Production serial numbers began at 127161 in August of 1965 which ended with serial number 218009 in November of 1967. Other IH Cub Cadet models made during this time of production were the models 102, and 122. The IH Cub Cadet model 123 began production starting in June, 1966 starting with serial number 157490 and ended with 218009 as the serial number, respectably. It was a very much improved line up from the IH Cub Cadet 70/100 series garden tractors in many ways. The IH Cub Cadet 71 was the direct replacement of the model 70. The bacis caraterstics of the model 70 were retained with the 71. There are three noticable upgrades to the 71. For starters,the grill was made to resemble the IH 56 Series agricultural tractors, while the grill housing itself was redesigned. This was dubbed the "swept-back" design, in which the hood was also redesigned to configure correctly with the grill housing as well. The most important upgrade began with the 71, in which that all other tractors would for ever follow, was the new saftey start switch.
