LTX1045 46 in. 20 HP Hydrostatic Drive Front-Engine Riding Mower-DISCONTINUED is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 217.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and Reliable I bought my LTX 1045 five years ago to cut my 2 acre yard. Now that it has stood the test of time I feel I can give an accurate review. With five years and over 250 hours on my machine I have had absolutely no problems with it. I have had other mowers of which none have been in the same condition at this point. Usually I am looking for a new mower by this time. This machine is ready for another five years and 250+ hours. It takes me a little over an hour to mow the 2 acres. My rule of thumb is buy the size tractor that gets it done in one hour or less. The kohler engine is the best I have experienced even on more expensive models.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far Pleased other than...... Purchased 3-27-2014.LTX 1045 This will be my 4th yard tractor but first better grade tractor. In doing some basic research I was more please with the performance of the Cadet than the John Deere.Very pleased with the cut,comfortable seating and seat.(Note: I am 6'-2"). Getting better than 2-1/2 cuts on a tank of fuel.Turning radius is what they say. The only problem is that reverse cutting button went out and I can not cut with the blades engage in reverse.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3 years old, well maintained, cracked engine block...DO NOT BUY!!! I purchased a 2010 LTX 1045 from Home Depot 3 years ago that just exceeded the warranty period; over this time period, I have been meticulous about ensuring that all preventative maintenance had been completed routinely, including: oil changes, general mechanical inspection before each use, cleaning after each use, changing the air filter 3X, and properly maintaining the deck (sharpening the blades, changing belts, cleaning, etc). Last weekend, SURPRISE!!! a nice big crack in the engine block! Never again will I purchase a Cub Cadet product OR for that matter, a cheaply built piece-of-garbage tractor from Home Depot. Fair warning...please do not make the same mistake that I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mower Mower has been easy to use. It starts easily and has a great turning radius. Depending on the length of grass, I canowy acreage in no time. Then only problem I have had with it was my own fault. I hit a piece of rebar in the yard and bent a blade. I wasn't looking forward to pulling the deck and changing the blades. When I looked at the instructions it turned out to be easier than I expected. The instructions lead me through each step. They were easy to follow. It work great now. This is one of the best purchases I have made since moved into my new house.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Change the Oil Drain set up Has anyone from Cub Cadet even looked at the drain plug set up on the Kohler motor? After 5 hours , it was time to change the break in oil and filter. I read were others were having trouble with the yellow plastic cover that fits over the drain tube, that you turn and pull out to drain the oil. So I was careful. So I turned it and pulled, nothing. So I pull a little harder and yellow cover came off the shaft completely. By the time I was able to get it back on , with the drain tube on it, Oil was all over the place. On the deck of the mower, puddling on the pulley under the motor, soaking the belts, and all over the drive way. What should have taken 15 minutes ended up taking an hour. Someone needs to have Kohler change that set up to just a 3" long pipe coming out of the motor with a cap that screws on the end. Cheaper to produce and much more practical.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Engineered to Fail! Bottom line is that it is cheaply built with parts that are designed to fail and very expensive to replace! Check the part pricing before you buy! Keep reading if you want details on my experience. Check the part pricing before you buy! Initially I was happy with my purchase; however, after about 50 hours of use this mower began to show its faults. First the deck spindles gave out, and yes they were properly maintained. When I contacted cub-cadet about the warranty they said a service dealer would have to look at it and typically those were not covered because of normal wear. Well, living out in the middle of nowhere and the nearest dealer 50 miles away, I sucked it up and ordered new ones and again after about 50 hours those wore out as well. This was mostly the only problem, except for the oil drain plug, until I hit 200 hours (at which the warranty expired) when the muffler broke loose. At 210 hours a cheap bracket fell off which held the expensive electronic PTO clutch in place. This would not have been to big of a deal except that wiring harness into the clutch did not have a breakaway connector of any sort and the wire broke off at the clutch giving no way to repair it. An expensive part, which was fine otherwise, rendered useless because the self tapping screws that like to loosen up and fall out did just that. Upon fixing that my next problem occurred at 219 hours when the fuel pump quit. That has been repaired and now at 220 hours the engine is beginning to burn oil and cuts out after about 15 minutes of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tractor!! Unloaded off the truck, cut 2+ acres in half the time(hour & a half) of my old mower... Love it!!
Date published: 2014-03-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! Had this mower for 1 year now. Works great, throws clippings 15ft and distributes so evenly I never have clumps. With the rollers on the front of the deck i never scalp the lawn. I have a yard with a lot of landscaping features and was nervous about the 46" deck. With the turning radius on this thing i'm so happy i went with the bigger deck. It cuts mowing time and i can get in every tight spot imaginable. The reverse mowing feature is also great. Only problem so far is light bulbs. Ive blown 3 sets. Happy I went with the 1045. The seat upgrade and the hydrostatic transmission is a must have.
