Garden Tractor Plowing!



    International Harvester first introduced the Cub Cadet 782 in 1979 and was the top of the line garden tractor available without upgrading to a Super Garden Tractor such as the new 982.  The 682 (manual lift version of the 782) and 782 were the first machines that International Harvester used the Kohler two cylinder engine (KT17) in a garden tractor.  The 782 replaced previous hydrostatic drive, hydraulic lift models such as the 1650 and 1450.

This particular tractor is another project that I am assembling from parts.  The frame is the 125th x82 series tractor built.  It was assembled on either October 2 or 3 of 1979.  I started with just the bare frame from a used part supplier in Pa and have acquired the appropriate period correct parts for this machine.   The transmission is from a 1450 and only differs from the original 782 transmission in that it does not have aluminum axle housings.  Upgrades which will differ from the original 782 is the Kohler Magnum 18 twin cylinder engine and an updated lift rockshaft from a later 782.
