How do I move a non-running 782 to the shop for repair without damaging the hydro?

If the 782 is similar to the John Deeres, there should be a transmission release somewhere on the back of the transmission. On the Deeres, it is an L-shaped rod that pulls out.

Also, hand push it - do not pull it with a vehicle. Going too fast will cause damage to the hydro pump.

No release handle on a CC 782. Was always told the toddler rule: push it no faster than a toddler can walk. Do that and you’ll be fine.

There's no release handle on the 782 and newer Cadets. The hydro is "self dumping" meaning that it is not pressurized when the engine is off. You should be able to push it by hand without problem. I've towed them before, but slowly!! I've also seen where they hydro does not dump and it's locked up like an old style hydro. In that case, it's best to lift and move them rather than try to pull it.
