My wife and I celebrated our 5th wedding Anniversary on May 23rd. To mark the occasion, She decided to purchase a Cub Cadet. She found a nice looking 1200 with 44A deck, blade, chains and 2 sets of rear weights in Cedar Rapids. I called the owner and made arrangements to look at the machine the next evening. The owner said that his wife's grandparents purchased it new in Monticello, IA. They had not used it much for several years, and decided to let it go. When I arrived that evening to look it it , She almost hated to part with it. However, my name had seemed familiar to them. After a phone call to another IH collector, they realized that we were all members of Iowa Chapter 5! They remembered my name from my service as President for the last couple of years. I was impressed how well the 1200 ran and how clean it was. The only issue is a weak clutch. Easy enough to fix. We paid them and loaded up the mower and accessories. Last night, I mounted the deck and it mowed beautifully! Plan to overhaul the clutch next weekend.
So I have a 1/2 mile gravel lane to my house that I maintain. It has a slight crown in the center so water will run off. We have an old road drag that takes two people to operate with one driving the tractor and one riding on the drag shifting weight to cut as needed. It works (believe it or not) but takes a lot of time and 2 people who know how it works. I own a rear mounted blade but don’t want to move that much material 90% of the time. What do you guys use to maintain rural or private roads? I have been told of a Land Pride 3pt tool that works well. Any opinions?

Never seen a ram with felt seals on the pistons. I know this machine is from the 1940’s but wondering if anyone knows if these can be replaced or upgraded? There is quite a bit of rust and pitting inside the cylinder as well as some gouges on the chrome of the ram I’m not sure a can polish out so trying to do the full cost evaluation before I buy new units, thanks
