Re-Powered 1983 26" Cub Cadet

Here is a short video of my restored 1983 26" large frame Cub Cadet snow blower. This machine has a 18" Auger with a 4 blade 14" impeller with an impeller kit on it and a differential for easy steering. It is powered by the older harbor freight greyhound 11hp engine with 12volt electric start with electric chute and hand warmers.

That is a wonderful looking restoration of a industrial grade snow blower. Well done! Your wife did fine with video work. Don't criticize or your next video will be taken using your cell phone video camera rubber banded to a stick that's stuck in the snow bank.

Interesting machine! Must be an early 80's MTD..
MTD's were robust machines back then..

That thing is a beast. Awesome power and nice and quiet too. That 11hp Harbor freight Greyhound runs great!
