I'm looking seriously at this tractor. Only has plow. No mower or Snow Blower.

What engine would it have.

What issues should I be aware of?

Any other advise would be appreciated

Thanks

If I remember correctly the 782 has the KT 1 Kohler engine in it. This engine may have oil issues, they were not pressure lubricated so some of them (not all) had issues when operating on hillsides. Some were replaced with the KT Series II pressure lubricated engines. They are a stout machine in all other regards.

Loaded question, from $750 - $1500 depending on what you would replace with. Take a look at small engine warehouse to get an idea of replacement engines.

This just popped up on my local Craigs List....
Cub Cadet GT 2544
$650

Looks good and in my ballpark for $$....Would need to find a plow for it or make one.....
Roy, the 2500 series is a very capable shaft drive GT but lacks an auxillary hydraulic circuit. All implements added to it would have to be electric. There are electric actuated buckets available for one as well as sleeve rear hitches but all are electric.
