The Edrob/International Cub Cadet Tractor was built by International Harvester from 1961 to 1963.

Model History[edit | edit source]

For Company history see
Main article: International Harvester

International decided to enter the garden tractor market in 1961 with the Cub Cadet. Unlike some of the riding tractors on the market, the Cub Cadet was styled like a real tractor and it was the first garden tractor built by a major tractor manufacturer. It was also sold and serviced by highly respected International dealerships. The 7-hp Cub Cadet was powered by a 16 ci single-cylinder air-cooled Kohler engine and used a 3-speed transmission with V-belt drive from the engine to the transmission input shaft. Unlike International farm tractors, the Cub Cadet was painted a 2-tone yellow and white. It was an instant hit and 19,091[1] were built the first year.
