I first thought about 935 white for both and keep the white wheels on the tractor. I am now thinking about painting the deck and undercarriage semi gloss black same as the frame and paint the wheels on the deck and tractor non smudge aluminum like the 88 series farm tractors. What do you all think?

Tom you went above and beyond on this one!! Should make you proud everytime you look at her or run her!!

I like your idea on the deck and wheels! I think black and silver would look astounding.. always did look good on the big tractors!!

Hey, thanks guys. I am seriously thinking black on the deck and undercarriage and silver wheels.

Not painted yet as I am enjoying using the tractor to much. Maybe some time this coming week after I mow again.

First thing I have to do is work in the combine to get it ready to harvest wheat. We need to rebuild the cutter bar.
Later
Tom

Just a quick update on the 2882 project. I have not had time to paint the deck yet and will probably wait until winter. Still trying to get wheat harvested between the rains. We have had over eight inches of rain in the last two weeks. One thing for sure the grass is growing like crazy. I still cannot believe how nice this thing drives and the power that the EFI 28 hp Command has. The fuel economy is fantastic. Using the same mower deck on my other 1872 with the 23 hp Command it took about 3.5 gal of gas to mow my yards. I now can get it all done using about 2.2 gal. I did not build it just to save fuel but it is a plus. have a good one.

Well, that's all good Tom. Saving money is always good, especially on fuel.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
