Default Super Garden Tractor model 2086

Hey Folks,

Greetings from Asheville, NC. I'm so glad to have come across this forum.

Here's the scoop. I just bought a new home and my father is handing me down his Super Garden Tractor model 2086. I really know nothing about it. He says it has a 48" deck and is about twenty years old. He's serviced it every year and has the blades sharpened frequently. He has always been very meticulious with his things. Before he brings it down to me from CT, he is having it tuned up. I'm really excited about my first lawn tractor. I'm looking forward to it after all these years of mowing with my push mower.

I've read the forums about the Supers and really just want to know more about this tractor. It would be great if anyone had any photos of a similar one. Any info, ideas, recommendations, etc. would be appreciated. I'm not coming to you with any problems (yet) but am just curious about the tractor in general.

What can I expect from it? What accessories are must have's? I don't think it has a PTO. Also, does this model have a 3 point? What exactly are folks refering to when they discuss a 3 point anyways? Also, what do folks mean by a cyclops tractor?

Again, any info about this tractor will be read with great interest. I'll be getting this tractor around Thanksgiving. I can't wait!

Thanks for everything.

The 2086 was built 1996 to 1997 with a liquid cooled Kawasaki engine, power steering & dual brakes. Options were: Cat 0 three point hitch, front hydraulic outlets and rear PTO. I don't know if there were any issues with them or why they used the Kawasaki engine.

Cyclops series Garden Tractors have plastic/composite hood & side panels. They aren't as durable as steel ones, dahhh! The hood & sides come together to the grill & with the shape of the front lites look like a Cyclops. They have Idiot lites on the dash & have electrical wiring issues at times. I have a 1541 for a year & half to be used as a donor for my other Cubs, front super steer axle to 882,15/18Mag Kohler undecided,46" deck & sub frame went to Matt G. seat to seat from 582 to 882. Mounted 551 snow thrower on 1541,now to rebuild carb to withstand snow challenge! Cat. 0 3 point hitch is mounted on the rear to raise & lower a moldboard plow, a disk harrow,a rear blade, a cultivator, a rototiller, any Cat. 0 3 pt. attachment/ implement. Rainman

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.
