Hello everyone. This is my 782 on the day I picked it up. It started up after some cranking, but the engine (KT-17 series 1) sounded pretty good. The mower 44" mower deck had rust on it, the seat was shredded, the paint was faded, and it had the wrong rear tires and mismatched front ones. It came with a rusted cart (behind me) and had a cub cadet utility box with a tow hitch ball welded to it. Although the engine ran pretty good, there was definitely an issue with the transmission linkage (cough(trunnion)), as the tractor wouldn't go slow, which made it a challenge to get it on my 4x8 flat bed without ramps. It goes faster than I expected, it's powerful and it has a beefy transmission which is what I was looking for in my next tractor. After a trip down the driveway, I was thrilled with the ride and I was sold.
