    18 year old Cub Cadet Model 1811 Hydro. Just picked it up today.

    It came complete with 48 inch deck, bagger, snow blade, and wheel weights. 950 some hours on the meter.

    The engine still runs strong. Its a 18 hp Kohler. Kohler no longer makes a engine that will fit it but Honda makes a 24 hp engine that will plop right down in the place of the Kohler and I hope down the road to be able to afford to put one in.

    It was a birthday present. I have been wanting one for sometime as when I was a kid I spent hours at my great grandfathers house driving it around his 2 and 1/2 acres.

    I plan on mainly using it to just push snow in the winter. My mother and step father have the one from my childhood and it is in much better shape body wise, but needs some mechanical loving to get it back in working condition. I plan to make it a project down the road.

    In the picture I have just given it a much needed bath.

    Maybe a mod will be kind enough to switch images and delete the first one.
