Re: 1988 Cub Cadet 1811 - Show Off & Opinions - Should I keep it?
Had a Very Nice 1987 JD 318, Sold it due to a dealerships advice due to a hydraulic 'issue'...... a few years later i start talking to other 318 Maint. persons around the country and they ALL went, you did whaaaaaat.
Regret and Lost a TON of $$$$ getting another and now chasing issues that i have now apparently inherited. Now have a 1990 and am chasing things and isn't near as 'clean' as my 87, yet it was 'redone'.
Keep it and/or loan it to someone you'd trust. Just don't find nice ones like that. and yes, I grew up with a IH 782....... great all purpose machine.
