Hi folks,
I'm interested in buying this 1882. The gentleman selling it states its in good order. He's asking $1350.00 for it. Is the machine worth it?

I don't know much of anything about the MTD built cubs but that 1882 looks like it's in pretty nice shape to me, very clean machine 👍

Greg, it looks good.It's 30 yrs old and "averaged "25 hrs per yr of use.Probably sold from 4 to 5000 new.The only questions are,the intended use and does 30 yrs feel ok to you ??You can buy a box store new mower for less that will maybe last 5 yrs........points to ponder it's produced by MTD not IH

It looks like it's in good shape. Parts are still available for the most part. I planned on using a 3 point on it. Mow an acre of grass etc.

Hopefully someone with some experience with these models can give you a little insight. Even though it is an MTD built machine I would hope that the 1882 models were before there was any real major decline in quality and durability. As with any machine I'm sure they have their own set of pros and cons and maybe someone on the forum can point out some things to look for?

Greg,I did some looking on the net.I couldn't find 1 sold at auction but a couple for sale at around 1500+.For that kind of $ I would have lengthy talk with present owner.How long has he owned it,what has he repaired and seriously ask for details and why he wants to sell. Get as much history as you can.It's your earned cash don't hesitate to question politely......And if it fits..do it...

That's not an 1882 with that engine, that last picture is a Command. It's the wrong picture or it's a 2084.

The Command engine is preferable.

I have 2 Cub Cadet 1864.... i do not know what differences from 1862 to the 1864 , possibly the 1862 does not have power steering?
the engine looks the same as the 1864.
the tractor in the pics looks very clean, probably won’t find a better one.
Do not let the age bother you

I have 1. It has 18 Kohler magnum motor & not the command that you show in that one. From the little I know. They are a very solid & reliable tractor. Must be careful with plastic hood & side panels. Check brake pads. That model has steering brakes. Depending on how it was used ,they may be thin. Change oil & filter on engine & trans , grease & enjoy. I also have a 2182. The pictures show 1of those in the back round. I have 2 lots of ground . 1 is 7acres & the others is 5acres of grass . Both have long driveways. They cut grass & blow snow, plus. Just telling you that so you know . They do not just sit around. Would still feel better at $1100. But that's up to you. Good luck.

I would check for loose, missing bolts that hold the tranny to the frame, Broken plastic, check for leaks.

I think you are correct. Check what Lew listed. Not low hours but still has life left. Most likly will need coils and maybe head gaskets.
