Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cmill Great mower
I just picked this up a couple weeks ago at the Depot, and I love it. I had a LT1000 craftsman that would just rip the yard up and leave grass humps all over the yard. I went over it with the new Cub, and it cut the grass nice and even. It also to the old grass clippings and spread them nicely where I could not even see them in the yard. It has a nice solid build and rides smooth. I have read a few reviews here that said they had belts break often on this mower, but you have to adjust the deck wheels to your lawn before you cut, or the deck will swing and that is what causes the belts to break. I really do love this mower so far, but I will update after a few more cuts.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dave A good solid machine
I've had the lawn tractor since the beginning of summer when our lawn care person kept blowing us off. Right off the bat I was happy with the way it performed. Runs well, no hiccups, enough power to tackle the acrea na a half of lawn on our property. So far the only above and beyond maintenance has been installing the mulcher kit, and replacing a bent mulcher blade after hitting a higher than expected tree root hidden in some high grass. All in all so far it's run without a hitch. For those thinking of getting one, you can't beat the quality for the price. I look forward to it serving the household for many a year to come.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TNTONY Most disappointing mower ever
I purchased a LTX 1040 about 3 years ago and I have about 75 hours on it. I've had to replace the PTO belt 4 times and the drive belt once. I been plagued with oil leaks and the vibration has caused parts to fall off and the bolts to completely back out of the exhaust. twice The bolts holding on the front of the hood have come off twice and and I finally replaced them with bolts and nuts drilling thru the hood. Wouldn't start once and the electrical lead to the bottom of the carb had broken off. The quality of this mower is horrible. I purchased Cub Cadet based on brand name. Boy was I fooled,

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dapnyiv most expensive paperweight I ever bought
Bought this tractor 5 years ago when I got a new house because my ex loved the old Cub as much as I did. Unfortunately I had no idea how much Cub's quality has declined. Nothing but problems from the start. Deck leveling bracket broke after only 1 year then was no longer available to replace. Unit burned up batteries, belts and blade (the 3 Bs) faster that I could buy them. Non-stop fixes and adjustments to keep it running. Mower deck had to have all the guide wheels re-welded. And finally2 days ago, with only 210 hours use on it, the steering gears went bye-bye. I can't even bring up the parts list on the website to replace them. I'm not putting another penny into it and it's by the road waiting for the scrap metal people. I went out and bought a new Craftsman. At least they are not made by MTD. To sum it up in one word - JUNK. I will never buy another Cub product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Boneman65 Good mower but skimped on some quality.
I've owned this mower for about 90 days now and mow about 1/2 acre of hilly yard which almost none is level. It seems to do the job well but will know more next year when I get a full season out of it.
The headlight assembly is pretty cheap. Water and dirt gets inside which reduces their illumination ability. I tried to seal the but stuff still gets in. The headlight bucket is just some very thin junk shiny plastic and the right bulb is burnt out. There needs to be a switch to turn them off because I mow mostly in the day and they aren't needed.
I DO like the "mow in reverse" feature but it has disengaged twice so far. The turning radius is great but you must go very slow. The hood should have a latch because going down hill it opens up so I put velcro on it to keep it closed.
The muffler should have been high heat painted because it's starting to rust along with the wheels and it's garage kept.
Great power and mowes great but I need the lug type tires for the hills. I'll post again next year!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Coltgunman Totally dissapointed in quality and service.
Had this mower just over 3 years, only 81 hours on it. Right at the end of warranty had to replace a spindle, it came back from the "authorized service dealer" with the blades out of time. (having a deck with a timing belt a totally bad design) Now, with 81 hrs (a lot of which is just the motor running), the whole deck shakes and makes so much noise the whole neighborhood can hear it. Based on this particular model year, I would NEVER recommend a Cub Cadet to anyone. Hoprfully they have improved the deck design, but that doesn't help my situation.
