Been checking CL for a while for parts tractor, a hydro, or a 18hp Kohler.  Yesterday about noon a guy listed an 1811 that ran and mowed but had a broken front wheel.  FREE.  No name.  No address.  No phone number.  Only a town.  Said he was moving and needed it gone.  Looked like it had about 5 years of dust on it though it was inside.  Sent a message right away and offered him $100 if he would hold it till I got there.  Never heard a thing and the ad was gone this morning.

 

Back to looking on CL.  Spotted an 1810 that about 2 hours away at a real good price.  Called and owner said the tractor ran good and mowed good. They had bought a newer mower and this one needed gone.  We agreed on the price and I took off.  The tractor fired right up and ran good.  Little rough at idle but that is minor.  For a parts tractor it was a super buy.  He drove it onto my tilt bed trailer and I handed him 3 bills.  He handed me a Cub Cadet folder with all the original paperwork for the tractor since day one.  He bought it new.  Strapped it down and headed down the road.  Took a gravel; for about 6 mile due to bridge repair and the road was closed.  Another 4 mile gravel detour but both save me about 22 mils to stay on hard surface.  Tractor really picked up a ton of dust on the way home.  Nothing a good pressure washer batch won't solve.

what would teh difference be,between an 1810 and an 1811?  I'm not up on that era of cub cadet but besides color it looks like a 782 or 982.

The cost was not in with the papers.  Lot of tags from the engine, mfg numbers, etc.  Owners manual, attachment book, Deck manual.  Etc.  

 

The 1810 has manual lift,  1811 has hydraulic lift.  1812 has the front outlets for the hydraulic angle blade.  That is the way I understand it anyway.  1512 is the same as the 1811 except has a 15 hp diesel engine.

Yes this is another tractor.  It is in kind of rough shape and my 1811 is much better condition and had better care.  It is short a motor.  So the motor from th1810 one will get cleaned up good and dropped in the 1811.   My 1512  diesel has hydro problems.  Have another hydro coming but it that don't fix the free wheeling the rear end out of the 1810 will go in the 1512.  That makes the 1810 a parts tractor and fixes up two other much better and nicer tractors.  Still have a decent 50" deck or a parts deck.

UPDATE.  Got the 1810 cleaned up this morning.  What a bunch of crud, crap, dirt, etc. all over under the tunnel cover. 
Got all I could get at with it on its wheels.  Needs to be up ended with the chain hoist to get the underside good.  Cleaned the air cleaner up and a couple shots of carb cleaner, minor adjustment and it idles like a new one.  Hour meter shows 678 hours and it still works.  Ready to mow now if I have to use it.  Will start the clean up on the 1811 as the next project.
