This is my Cub Cadet 2166, I bought it used in 2005 for $1,100. It had around 380hrs. on the meter. The deck bearings were wooped, it needed new front tires and the seat brackets were rotted through. The man that owned it used it to mow, blow snow and pull wagons of fire wood with. So with some patients and around $200 in new parts and paint I got a near new machine, it has just turned 500hrs. The stock rear tires were very weather checked and had no traction on the slopes around my yard, so I replaced them with a set of mounted tires from TSC 2 yrs. ago. Shaft drives are great and the hydro system has spoiled me.
