So I picked up a 782 about a month after I bought the 682. Came with a couple attachments which the guy claimed were for cub. The blade to me appears to maybe be an aftermarket made to go on a cub. The snow thrower I suspect was for something else and maybe somebody had an idea of adapting it to cub? Doesn't look like mounts I have seen advertised for cub that I can recall and they have been heated and bent it looks like. Anybody recognize what it may have been for originally? No tags that I can see on either.
Thought I'd accidently clicked on a Harley riders forum? OUght to be a fun party when you guys get together? Seriously hope all of you have a safe and enjoyable day with family and friends however you choose to celebrate?
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?
