I found these two tractors along with some less desirable trashed tractors at a dump site yesterday. Had one heck of time getting them in my truck. Thats a whole other thread in it of itself. But I wanted the Jacobsen for the motor and frame and transmission, I had an excavator idea floating around so I wanted to play with it a bit but the cub cadet hydro was sort of a had to grab it thing it appears like most of the hydro components are there. I'm not to familiar with hydro cubs you guys might be able fill in the gaps for me. The pump is there and steering assemble. Levers and hydraulic lines. The wheel on the tractor is still holding air I have the other tire in the shed, it leaks at the rim. It was flat when I found it. I think the rim is just dirty or rusty (I'm hoping) The cub I was thinking of parting out.

My vote is for treasure also. It sounds like the price was right and there are lots of parts there. You got it home, so treasure it is. Congratulations.

Those look like pretty good finds to me. That Cub Cadet looks a 2072 Super garden tractor. They originally had a 20 horse Kohler. It looks like the power steering is all still intact on it.

I can't believe someone would throw GT's away! They are treasures in my book.

Well, the real question is, did it belong to "One Man" or did it belong to "Another Man", cause you know how it goes, "One man's" trash is "Another man's" treasure.

I was at a scrap yard earlier this week, and there were a lot of "parts" of GTs and just lawn tractors, but nothing worth bringing home.
I told the guy I would be back to look again in a few weeks.

You, however hit "pay-dirt"!

Here something I find impressive about the cub, I was out giving the tractors a look over. I turned the steering wheel of the cub and the steering cylinder still extends and retracts. It seems to me like the hydraulics are all still pretty much there.

Awesome score for an even better price! The hydraulics on that Cub look to be in good shape! Lots of parts there...in fact the Cub probably just needs a power plant!

TREASURE! The power steering components go for over $200 bare minimum! If the hydro is good, that also is worth in excess of $200.
