Cub Cadet 265 Snowblower

New to the site and I am wondering if a Cub Cadet 265 with a manufacturing date of 1980 was made by IH or was it an MTD or other name brand with just the IH paint and logo's? I figured some more knowledgeable people on this site could help me out. Thanks in advance

Erv,
I already answered your question in your other post! I'll repeat it here:

Im not 100% sure, but I dont believe that IH *ever* made their own walk-behind snowblowers..they were likely always farmed out to another manufacturer to build, then the Cub Cadet name was put on them. Ariens might have been the first to make Cub Cadet snowblowers, starting in the early 70's most likely. All the rest are most likely MTD.

IH probably did make the garden-tractor mounted snowblowers, to go with the Cub Cadet tractors.

Although 1980 throws off the Ariens theory..
An Ariens-built Cub probably wouldnt be any later than 1974 or 1975.
How do you know its 1980?
Can you post a photo of the snowblower?

Cub Cadet 265

sscotsman, Thanks for the reply. As far as the date 1980, I have no proof, just what I was told by the seller as I was looking to buy this snow blower. With the information you posted, I am
gonna pass on it. I knew IH made pretty solid stuff in the 60's and 70's, some 80's but later cub cadet isn't that way and I wasn't even sure IH made snow blowers at all. Thanks for the info and please excuse my double post.

No problem Erv!
The seller is probably just guessing at the year, he probably has no idea..it very well could be one of the early 70's Ariens-built machines, which would fall in the "pretty solid stuff" range..

Cub Cadet is one of those brands that is definately "the older, the better"..but it sounds like you already know that!

I have some more info on the Ariens/Cubs here:

Did Ariens use this angled, slotted chute rotation ring on any of their own chutes? I don't remember seeing it before. Round holes with a sprocket yes, and teeth on the outside driven by a worm gear...tons of them. But these oval slots? Was that something they did just for IH?

I can't quite make out what is engaging them.
FWIW;
I believe Lawn Boy made their mowers.

Ariens built that machine in the photo and Ariens did use a sprocket style chute with holes in it for the first 6-7 years, but they were different, they either did it to make the cub cadet unique or so that the actual Ariens machines chutes could not interchange with cub cadet machine's Ariens built for them, most likely with the thought of design patent right's, which all has to do with $$$. So from the looks of it I don't think an Ariens sprocket will work on that Arien-cub cadet chute or vise versa I don't think that chute would work on an Ariens, the sprocket turning mech would have been made different to fit those hole's, I could be wrong it might work, but from the looks of it, I doubt it. But no Ariens never made their actual chutes with those type holes, the ones on all the Ariens chutes are straight not at an angle.

Dual stage machines
1971 Ariens Sno-Thro 7/24, 7hp Tecumseh H70 (Backup unit)
1971 Ariens Sno-Thro 32 wide Predator 212cc (7hp) (2nd unit)
2002 Snapper 8246 (Series 6) 8hp Tecumseh HMSK80 (Main unit)
Single stage machines
1985 SnowChamp by Aircap 3hp, 20" single stage, 2 cycle Tecumseh AH600, air-vane snow director (primary single stage)
2001 Craftsman 5hp, 21" single stage, 2 cycle Tecumseh HSK850 (secondary single stage)
