Found this beauty on CL yesterday, went and looked at it and ended up picking it up (well actually talked him into deliverying it since I was in my Jeep). Has 1300 hours on a KT-17 Series 2. Deck needs a little work but is functional. Has been painted but tins are straight and there is no serious rust on the thing. I've had a thing for the red ones since I saw a 782D (of course they are out of my price range) so I settled for this 682 which I think will do me just fine!

The ol' fella had a few others in his stable, a 1200, a 1250 an MF7, an 8N and a really old JD covered up by piles of stuff.

I picked up a 782 last year and don't know how I ever got along with out it ! Your gonna love that 682. The only difference between them is the hydraulic lift which can be added to the 682. Now the 982 and the 782D's, ya those bring a lot more $$$. Congratulations on the new unit !

Thanks guys. I'm really looking forward to mowing with this machine. He said his dad bought the MF7 new, it was covered up but looked pretty decent from what I could see. The 1250 doesn't run, good compression but no spark and the deck needed at least one spindle worked on. He tried to get me to take it too as a package deal but I know better than to push the OL too far! (whisper) I might scrounge up the cash and go back for it (/whisper) The 1200 is his and his brothers backup mower so he wouldn't deal on it. I tried to get him to throw the moon caps in on my 682 but he wouldn't do it.

I was watching your posts the last couple of days, and knew you were headed after this tractor. Looks nice!
Good luck with it, and we love the pictures.

...and we love the pictures.


specifically why I took them.

started tearing into the deck last night. (I’ll get some pic’s ASAP) There is a little bit of repair work to be done before I'm going to put to full time cutting duty. I plan to strip it down and, clean, prime and paint it the way it should be done. Two of the three spindles were pretty bad but the worst was the center one, the pulley was pretty loose on the shaft. I can't find a SM for the 44C deck so I'm not sure if these assemblies can be rebuilt... I'm searching around but if anyone knows where to find a service manual for this deck let me know.

I believe the spindles are not rebuildable & have to be bought as a unit. Kind of pricey if I remember right.

Yeah, that is what I am thinking... and from what I've found, you are correct... about $180 for the outside and $188 for the middle.

I think I would just adapt spindles from another make, and some that are rebuildable. Shouldn't be difficult to do. Those prices are CRAZY!

:laughingteeth: I like the way you think Daniel, my thoughts exactly! I'm still going to look into it. I may be able to just replace the shaft/bearing part... this:

If that doesn't work... anyone know what rebuildable CC spindles that might have the same 3 bolt mounting pattern??

You might try some from a 48" or 42" deck some of those have cast iron housings and use Chevy wheel bearings. I rebuilt mine for about $20 a piece.
