Would like to know if the cub cadet diesel's are really worth the extra money. I have done some research on the monsters but I keep comming up with money verses overall performace ratio problems. So I thought I'd ask what I know are a group of informative and intelligent people unlike myself :bounce::confuse:

Which year cubs are you talking about ? Some of the earlier cubs ( 782D for example ) ,had Kubota diesels in them and of course they are good engines.The 5000 series had Daihatsu diesels,and the Yanmar cubs have Yanmar diesels.

I would talking the 782d. I pretty much stick with the older cub cadets being that of the IH made tractors. I have a chance from a local man to purchase it (782d)and I think its worth the money but it seems they are high and hard to find parts for and to be honest if I picked it up I would never really use it but would add it to my little collection. I take all mine apart replace and recondition all parts . I then remove all paint then I use a auto rust inhibitor primer followed by several coats of light grey auto primer to be followed by primer sealer. When I finish with the primers I then use what I can get from my local International case dealer (Iron Clad) finish coat white and federal yellow depending on year of tractor.
