I need another Super like a hole in the head.....but it never has stopped me before!

The rear saddle tank with 82 tins is a nice combo that I've always been intrigued by....Mike just made it easy for me!!!

STEVE - The picture of your Cub shed looks familiar. About what my shop looks like except my shop is bigger.  Have to walk on top of tractors to get to some parts of the shop.  I don't think a guy can have TOO MANY Super's.

     I got some attachments I should post for sale, QA-36 snow blower and a 42" blade. I bought the blade to clear up little snows of around an inch. Wife's EDGE is AWD as is my pickup, We drive over the snow now, if it gets deep enough a FARMALL gets rid of it.

Put it to work tonight....4.5 yards of mulch to haul and spread. 

Then I did a quick level check on the deck and mowed a little to see how it did......not bad.

I did see that tractor posted on FB I think a few weeks ago.  I was curious how he put it together.  Didn't know it was for sale.

I've been trying to find a super for a few years.  I think I'd like to start with an 1872, they just don't seem to come up around here too often.  That and I need to move some of my other stuff 1st, lol.

It was going up for sale later this spring, but I was up at Mike's last weekend to visit and get parts with dad..... he mentioned it and it sounded like a good thing to own!   I like the fenders and seat, you sit up higher than the flat pan fenders.

Was a cyclops.   82 dash, grill, and tins (fuel filler hole welded shut). Diesel battery tray.  Cyclops driveline and fenders.  Has big 30mm axle housings and CV joint drive shaft.  SGT 3 pt.

Nice parts combo.  Looks and runs well.  18hp mag that was just gone through.

I was originally not a fan of these tires, but since this will be a mowing and possible snow blade machine I thought I'd try them out.  Carlisle Versa Turf radials, 26x12x12R.

Look kinda mean with the rounded fenders.

Looks good.  Are those the 8.5 wide Cub Cadet rear rims?   Miller tire recommends a 9.5 or 10.5 for these tires.

I thinking about putting these on my 1772 and was thinking I would need wider rims.   If those are the original Cub Cadet rims I won't bother with wider rims.   

Thanks for the pictures.

Original SGT rims.  They ride very nice with 10# in them.

I think these are 4 ply and so far, no, all good.   But I just repainted rims.   

They are filled with washer fluid, so we'll see.....

Think I lost the front (PTO) crank seal mowing last night. PTO is still holding it part way in. 

 

If its not one thing, it's 6 more!

Fixed the front seal today...found the old one, harder than a brick bat, loose in the bore and sliding back and forth between the bearing and PTO clutch.....explains the knocking noise it was making.  

New seal, Super Glued into place and all is well!
