There is a cub 1772 for sale in my area that seems to be in good shape with rebuilt injectors and a gear reduction starter. I have never owned a cub cadet but do own several John Deere garden tractors and the cub cadets seem to be just as good. He’s asking 3500 for it. It also includes a 60inch deck and upgraded glow plugs he said. It’s not in bad shape and those little diesels last a long time. Just wondering if a 1772 is a good choice for a first cub

This one dose have the deck and 3 point. I will mainly use it for my box blade and other 3 point attachments. It seems to be a good little tractor. How many hours do you think it will last. It has all the new parts that seem to go bad so that should last a long time right?

He also has just informed me that it may need a new ignition switch. But he said he has a cheater wire that he goes across the battery post? It doesn’t seem like a big thing but I asked if he would take less money and he said no he’s firm on 3500

It runs great starts perfect and is in pretty good shape
I took the deck off so I could fit my 318 in the shop too but it mows good. I really like the diesel and have replaced the ignition already but it did not help I still have to jump the starter any help would be appreciated

After using and loving my 1772 I am so happy I spent the money and got my first super garden tractor. Its at the ranch right now in charrge of maintaing the driveways and lanes. When it was living in the neiborhood, It kept finding jobs! Trimming trees and hauling limbs and doing small landscaping tasks with the box blade. Sine I bought it the hour meter has somehow gone up by 41 hours? no idea how they got there ;)
