IH built them in 1980-81. The same basic tractor began with the Cadet 76 in 1972, and progressed with the Spirit of 76 in 1975-76,, the Cadet 80 in 1977-79, Cadet 81 in1977-79, and the 182, 282, 382, 382 Special in 1980-81. Cub Cadet Corp built them from 1982-84 (both red ones and yellow and white ones) with serial number range from 70,000 to 100,000, depending on the year. About the only difference from the Cadet 76 through the CCC built 382Hydro was the color, the transmission, and engine hp. Other than that, they all looked the same.
