The 1772 or 1782. I put rear end braces on this 1772 from Xtrememotorworks, converted to the later CV driveline, and a buch of other little upgrades. Very solid tractor and never lacks power.

That thing looks like a brute! Do you have any installed pics of the braces? Are they used to prevent cracking the aluminum transaxle case?

Thanks! Yup, the braces prevent frame twisting and cracking of the bolt holes that hold the rear end to the frame. Between them and the three point it makes the whole setup very solid.

Cub123, those braces look like a great idea. If I ever get a Super I'll probably add a set of those.

Queball, as far as I can tell it should pretty much tie for the title. It has one more cylinder but one less horsepower than the 2284.

It's no surprise my vote is for the kubota equipped supers as I own a 2182 with cab that has a 54 inch haban blade full time and a 1782 with a 54 inch model 324 deck for mowing duties. The steering brakes are great for winter in very slippery conditions, when the snow is wet and heavy, and turning in hilly areas. The diesel uses little fuel and can mow faster in high grass. The gas kubota starts easily and runs great in the coldest weather and both have been extremely reliable. Just realized I don't have updated pics of the 1782 used for mowing. I know the plastic front ends is an issue for some people but there is a solution for that. Stop running into immovable objects when using your equipment, problem solved.

I'm so confused! Can we have a pull off for the title of Biggest Brute? Winner gets bragging rights?
