How do I adjust brakes on my 782

I had a scary thing happen to me yesterday while I was doing some yard work with my 782 and a cart. Most of my yard is hilly and while I was out working picking up branches and cleaning up the yard my 782 ran out of gas going up the hill. To my suprise the brakes did not stop the tractor from rolling backwards. How do I adjust the internal brakes on my 782. Thanks for any help with this.

Thanks Roland. I assume I can get to this adjusting screws if I take the tunnel cover off or do I need to get to it from under the tractor. As you can tell I really don't know where this screw is located.

This is a really easy adjustment. Everything is on the lower front of the hydro, if I recall correctly. Took maybe 5 minutes to do.

Thanks guys. I made the adjustment like you said and it worked like a charm. I also adjusted the 1711 that was also in the same condition. I tell you this site is really great!

Larry :) :)

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.
