Default 1882 What's it worth?

Hey guys,

I've got an 1882 with a 60" Haban deck I'm going to be selling soon, and I have no idea what it should be worth.

Somebody gave it to me, I did enough work to make it run and mow grass but it needs a bunch of work and I don't have the time. And I have way too many trees to mow around; that big Haban is great in flat spaces but it's cumbersome around the trees. I plan on peddling it and getting a ZTR

The good:
New deck wheels
One new head gasket
New stator coil
Fresh epoxy on the flywheel magnets (that was fun)
Deck spindles are tight
New rear tires
Hydro seems perfect
44" snowblower that works (with some spare parts)

The bad:
Steering gear leaks, drips once it's warm
Steering cylinder seeps and has a mind of its own
Plastic hoods are beat, cracked and faded, missing grill
Rear fender paint is peeling
Front tires are bald
Wheels bearings, tie rod ends are loose
Wiring is kind of a mess
Kohler Magnum is tired, could use a refresh


Thanks for the thoughts, I'm not out to screw anybody over but I want to get what it's worth.

Disclaimer: I still have an 1811 that I'm never getting rid of, so don't think I'm getting out of Cub Cadets

First, . As always stated, pictures are helpful when assessing values. From what you stated, I would place the value somewhere between $800-$1200. Area and mechanical ability of buyer may also play a factor in the selling price (not necessarily value, though). Your Haban deck is worth around $400 with the undercarriage. That's not far from what I paid for one just about a year ago. Of course, piecing it out will always be more profitable than selling it as an entire package.

A lot of your bad is not THAT bad and could easily be fixed or overlooked, like the paint peeling can be overlooked as most of us have cubs with paint peeling or chipping. The front tires, wheel bearings, and tie rod ends are easily replaced for a benny, give or take. The wiring could possibly be cleaned up easily with some new wiring (and/or fittings). Does the engine just need a tune up or does it really need an overhaul? That could be the most significant part of money spent on repairs, so maybe a tune up might be all that it needs. If your cub is in "good" running shape, then in my area it would bring around $1200-$1800.

Glad you are keeping a cub back for your use.

Thanks for the info! Yeah if I was buying it most of the ugly wouldn't scare me. The steering gear is a pain and the steering cylinder is pricey. The tie rod ends, wheel bearings, etc aren't a big deal really. The old Kohler could use a hone job and rings I suspect, the hour meter is dead but it has a ton of hours on it, smokes a bit under load (I haven't bothered to check compression). I thought about keeping it, but I have too many trees to mow around. Your valuation was pretty much what I thought it would be worth, thanks for the confirmation.

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.
