Anyone own a Cub Cadet CC 760 Walk Behind

I just purchased a used CC 760 and was wondering what you guys think.
It starts up first pull and everything works. Just had to tighten up a few bolts.
Mine does need a new spindle and didn't think it would cost as much, are there aftermarket parts that could be purchased?

Parts are available online, and belts are the only real problem I've seen with them around here. Hope you got a good deal on it, and it shouldn't be hard to get it going again. Might want to put a new belt on it and grease everything you possibly can before you start using it regularly. Also check the condition of the cables, as they're a known issue as well.

The belts are all fine. Just need the spindle for only 1 belt to turn on.
I did notice the cables starting to come apart a little. Any easy, cheep fixes for the cables?

The guy that I am doing sub work for has one of these and at first I thought it would be junk but I have grown to like it...

It's actually lite enough to manhandle around as opposed to a Scag or Exmark of the same size...

The cables have given us a couple problems but as long as you are easy when engaging the tranny and the pto you will be fine...

It looks like there could possibly be an attachment if you remove the cutting deck. Maybe like for a snow blower or plow? Maybe not, just asking.

They have your model and diagrams showing the spindles, cables, etc.
I'm sure there are many more online sources, but this was first in the search results.

That machine is simply an update of the old Troybilt 33" machine. It actually mows pretty darn good. However, it is a fragile machine, not heavy duty in any way. Common, premature failure areas are: Spindles, cables, belts, and deck warpage.
Never turn this machine over to hired help. It will be trashed in a matter of days. For the owner operator who operates it with some care, it is a nice machine.
The cables are just plain cheap junk. Keep several spares on hand, you will need them.

I just installed the spindle I had to order. Installed the blades and got it all up and running. I think I need to order a new belt that engages the spindles that turn the blades because the blades go off timing. Is there an automotive belt I can use that's compatible?
Also I need the spring for the belt tensioner, any other suggestions I can use besides a spring to keep it tight?
