Currently have a 2185 as well as 682,782, two 1862's.

The 2185 was bought as a low hour used mower and does main yard mowing duty. 782 currently has a Haban snow thrower for driveway cleaning in winter and 1 1862 is wearing a ih snow thrower to clear my mother's drive in the winter.

Drug home a pair of 451 blowers this summer and hope to mount 1 on the other 1862.

Nearly forgot the 123 I never seem to get to.

And the 1862 with the thrower does have its side panels now but I don't seem to have a good pic of it that way.

Thank you. Most are are usable but all a work in progress to some extent.

Didn't really set out to zero in on the 82's and newer but ended up that way. Would be neat to have one from each series but I'm lucky to have what I do. Like to have a super someday but haven't made it a priority yet and would probaly thin the herd a bit to do so.

2185 gets most the mowing duty as I picked up a bagger for it and we like to mulch our garden with grass clippings. Last 2 winters the 782 with H42 snow thrower has done all the snow clearing at my place. Last winter I set up one of the 1862s with 36A? (I know that's not right but have crs right now) snow thrower to clear moms drive. But we didn't get that much snow.

Last few weeks I have been trying to get back to the 1862 which still needs body work put on. Have some but has the typical cyclops issues. Gonna have to get a bit creative. I did press some new bushings in the badly worn gauge wheels of the 54 gt deck that came with it and mounted it for the first time. I like it so far tho I only used it once to date. Hope to have this 1862 set up with one of the 451 snow blowers I picked up this summer and use the 782 as a back up.
