Cub Lo-Boy 154 Engine Specsby Chelsea Oliver
In 1902, the Deering Harvester Company and the McCormick Harvesting Machine company merged to form the International Harvester Company. This company began producing tractors, and continued to do so until 1985, when it joined forces with the J. I. Case Company to create Case IH. The International Harvester Company's Cub Lo-Boy models were produced between 1955 and 1980. The Lo-Boy, while similar to the Cub, is approximately 8 inches shorter due to shorter front end spindles and a rotated final drive.
