Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 25, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Now that's a machine! 18" high wet grass. I was between rain storms and had to do something before it got any worse This mower/machine went through this field almost like it was 3" high grass- and not at even 1/2 throttle. The turning radius on the machine was almost as good as a "0" turning mower. The clean up was also very easy with the hose connection at the top of the mowing deck- I still did a little more since I'm fussy about that kind of thing. Much to my surprise I found that it also grease z irks so I can maintain the machine! Look at the others- they are "sealed" but for how long! A great unit allows the owner to maintain it- period! I don't trust anything to be "maintenance free"! May 23, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by does everything I need it to This is my first tractor so I don't have anything to compare it to but I have had this for about two years and have used it to cut grass, pull a trailer, bag and mulch grass and plow snow with the snowplow attachment. It has performed well with all that I have out it through. I would buy another one if it is every needed and recommend it to others. June 7, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Possible bad blade. First off, excellent machine. The only issue I had, was after mowing for about 20 minutes I noticed that a blade was either loose or bent. It ended up putting to big circles in the front yard. Took the box off and seen that one blade had bent downwards. Once swapping the blades, it has worked as it should. One little hiccup, other than that it has worked flawlessly! May 27, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mower blades excellent tractor standard mowing blades are poor. very thin, bend easily, don't stay sharp. as soon as possible replace with extreme blades (942-04290-x) May 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is the best Lawn Tractor. This is the best lawn tractor on the market I looked at all the other brands and none were as good as this one. I'm glad I got it I love riding it. May 27, 2015
