After moving into our new house in the country, I realized that I needed a riding mower to be able to cut my grass in a reasonable amount of time and a way of clearing my 100 ft long driveway. After visiting a few local tractor dealers, I bought a Cub Cadet 782 on December 29, 2001 that was equipped with a tiller, 60C mower, and H42 snow blower. I also got tire chains and wheels for the winter.
I have a large property and it usually takes me about 3-hours to mow it with tractor and its 52" deck. I also use the tractor for towing trailers and this photo is of me while I was planting 239 trees provided to me by the Niagara Restoration Council on November 24, 2013.
