I am new with Cub Cadet Tractors. I have one, an LT 1018 I bought with a blown motor, good deck but needing wheels and blades. Got it for $50 plus a 70 miles trip one way. Good running machine now and have a little over $300 with good engine, new deck wheel & blades plus some other odds and ends.
Coming up on an auction from a private owner are 3 Cub Cadet tractors, all non running. One nothing is said about it.
Another is a 1512, not running. Have found out it should have the d600 Kubota diesel and has a 50" deck. Believe it should have a 3 point also. Are these a good tractor when running and what would be a decent price to pay for one when little is know about it - other than it don't run?
The third is a 1872 with deck not running. It should have a Kohler 18 hp engine. Is this a decent tractor when running and again, what would be a decent price to pay for one with little known other than - not running?
Looking to possibly purchase one or both (depending on the price) as fix and flip projects. May even keep the larger one and sell the LT 1018.
A good friend is the clerk for the auction family and will find out what he can but would be helpful if he and I knew what questions to ask. Thanks much for your input.
