Default Cub Cadet 2518- ?s

I'm looking at possibly buying a 2003, cub 2518. Looks in worse shape than it really is. The rust on the body is surface, I took a brush too it and it scrapes to shiny metal in less than a mm. The under body is pretty damn clean; kinda the opposite how you would see most mowers. No real rust underneath, everything is clean...etc etc. is not perfect though, needs a thorough cleaning. Motor does not smoke at all, oil looked good, no visible leaks. Belts are solid and in good shape. Blades engage smooth and motor on bogs for a second or two, still doesn't smoke.


Has a 20hp vtwin kohler commad, cast front axle, cast trans, come with 3 bin bagger, and the snow blower pictured next to it. 44" deck. (wish it had the 48" deck, but oh well)

Can get it for $1,000.

Good deal, ok deal, stupid for considering it, but it right this second?

Anything more I should look at?

Seems like a good deal. Make sure everything is there to attach and run the blower. Sometimes it's harder than it should be to source some little brackets and things like that.

I was gonna see if they'd hook up the blower, at the least let me hook it up and make sure everything works on it.

Anything specific on the mower I should look at?

That looks similar to one we bought used for my Dad several years ago, it's been a good machine, just fluid changes and keeping the battery charged. For a grand with the bagger and blower? Seems like a good deal.

Pulled the trigger and took a chance on it. Looked it over again, was still impressed with the mower and how everything looked overall.

Ended up paying less than 1,000 OTD
