I would like the correct colors of the IHC 100 manure spreader. All red?
Off white rims, blue rims? I can not remember seening an ad from years ago. Thanks in advance for any information.

All literature I have on the #100 spreader shows the whole machine entirely red... That would be my best guess....

I will vote red The neighbour had a model 100 when I was considerably younger. It sticks in my mind as my Father had a model 400. I remember asking him if ours was 4 times as big. It sure seemed big, however when the apron chain broke, but not as big as the 595 spreader, which was our last IH. When that sucker broke, we would carefully set it on it's side and very carefully empty it with the backhoe. Sure beat forking!!!!!!QR

I have an all original 100 in very nice condition, you can clearly read all the original lettering. I think (not sure) that it was bought new with the '49 Cub that my dad and I own. It is all red, with white lettering of course.

JohnW...Your Cub with the manure spreader would make a cute little outfit.
I remember my uncle had a 200 horse drawn new and I thought it was all red except for the lettering. I do not believe these spreaders were used that much. This one has the original IH chain on the beaters. This spreader is all original also but the lettering is weathered off. Sounds like you have a winner there. Thanks for all the replys.

Auctvern, I hope to make a presentable pair out of them someday. The problem is not the spreader, it's the Cub. Good mechanically, but in need of serious cosmetic help. Nothing too hard (is there anything hard to do on a Cub?) just takes time that I don't have right now. I believe you're right about the (non)use of many spreaders. Mine has original chains, apron, tires, everything. Spent probably 99.99% of its life tucked away in the corner of a shed.
