The blade has a detent cam lobe,  and I reset the notched arch for the blade lever........I have since tweaked it a little by making the linkage all with flat stock and making the lever a little easier to pull.......It works good in snow.....but it is

I found another one people, a real bastardized middle-child too!

A square body in Cub Cadet form can you believe it!?

These are all the photos unfortunately, I'd love to see the grille! Best I can tell its a 1986 and has the F/N/R transmission so I think it's safe to assume it has the Vari-Drive also.

If it wasn't so far away from me and I didn't already have so many tractors I'd gladly pay the $200 he wants for it just for historical reasons! Lol

Yep, definitely a Vari-Drive, that lever on the right side is the speed control lever.

Also, those tractors are really cool because they have a 2 speed varidrive in them. I’d like to mess about with one someday.

Very cool! My 2500 peerless has that same caliper. Speaking of which, for all y’all debating about whether a 2300 or 633 is stronger: sorry, 2500s are. lol.👹
