WHEN YOU TURN THE BLADE ON THE WHOLE HOUSING SHAKES.iS THIS NORMAL?

Asked by: WOODY
Woody, this is normal due to the large deck, three blades, and overall horsepower the engine puts out. There is a massive amount of air that is churned underneath the deck that causes the vibration.

LTX1050 50 in. 24 HP V-Twin Hydrostatic Drive Front-Engine Riding Mower is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 127.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great mower I just purchased my ltx1050 with 22hp Kawasaki. So far it is the quietest riding mower i have ever been on. hydro-stat will take some getting use to, but overall it is great. It is definitely worth the extra $100 to get the 50" cutting deck, it is alot heavier duty than the rest of the smaller decks and the extra blade makes the cutting much smoother. The only complaint i have is that 5.2 mph is just way to slow in my opinion for driving around the yard. But i guess all the models from all manufacturers have to cap it at that. Major bummer , i know the 1050 can go alot faster than that. But, i feel i got my moneys worth, and today that is few and far between.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mower This Cub Cadet LXT1050 get's the job done! It take's me about 2 hours to mow my yard . This mower is very comfortable, it doesn't beat you to death. It does really good mowing my ditches which have a fairly steep incline. This lawn mower cuts the grass very smooth and evenly at a descent rate of speed. It also cut's great in reverse. I'm very impressed with its power. The grass clippings spread out nicely as well, no clumping or "puking" out of the chute. It takes nearly no effort to raise and lower the deck, and you can't beat the many height selections. It has a great turning radius which saves on the weed eating. Very happy with this machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts my mowing time by a third! I purchased an LTX 1050 as a replacement for my 12 yr old riding mower. What a difference!! My old mower did not have overlapping blade cutting like the Cub Cadet and I'd have two little strips of uncut grass with each pass. I always had to over lap my previous cut to have a smooth cut. But not with the LTX! The 3 blades overlap 2 inches and cuts a full 50" with each pass! No re cutting needed! My 2.5 acres of lawn used to take me 6 to 8 hours to complete. With my new Cub Cadet, I'm finished in two and a half hours! It's easy to maintain, easy to access all the engine parts and easy to store for the winter. I actually look forward to the spring now that I have my Cub Cadet!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This mower was a 4.5 two weeks ago. Now a 2 I've had this tractor for 14 months. Last week, I replaced an Idler pulley, poor quality part, failed at 67 hrs of usage. A cheaply made stamped two part pulley wheel that separated at the bearing shaft. Today, the tractor just quit while mowing. The PTO hesitated a couple of times and then quit. I can see a loose wire. This not what I would expect from a name brand "quality" product at less than 100 hours. Of, course, the electrical problem shuts off the ignition system. I had to tow the tractor back to my garage from the far end of my lot. I was thinking about buying a snow thrower for this tractor, now I'm thinking about buying a new tractor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LTX 1050 KW This tractor is nice and packs a punch, makes short order of my 3 acres. Haven't had a problem with it yet, it really does a great job. I have some steep terrain that I thought it couldn't get up. I've waited and the grass got really high at least 3 feet. It made it anyway I could believe it i did I've pushed it really hard and it still cuts great. recently did its 2nd oil change and it was real clean. I would recommend this tractor and I'm looking forward to some great years with this one. Now to get some accessories...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great cut, but design flaws lead to extra $ & frustration I have owned this model since April 2011 and have no complaints with the quality of cut this mower provides. My main complaints are with the deck belt replacement. Pros - Four deck wheels ensures that you have a even cut with no scalping - 50 inch deck means I could cut my 3/4 acre yard in about 30 minutes Cons - Belt has broken twice with only 23 hours on mower - $50 to replace a belt that is not stocked locally - Deck must be removed to replace belt - Belt guards and sharp spindle edges make replacing belt frustrating and ensure that your belt will break again soon I recommend you check out one of these in person and have an associate demonstrate the pain involved in maintaining the deck components. If you don't mind the extra work and spending money on extra belts then you'll probably be satisfied with this mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased This is a replacement for my old, temperamental-starting '96 42" Craftsman, and I needed a tractor vs. a zero turn because I tow a lawn sweeper, watering tank, & broadcast spreader. I researched considerable amounts of reviews and blogs for many brands & models before choosing the LTX 1050 KW - due to the Kawasaki engine, the heavy gauge deck & the cloth seat. I have 3 acres of thick K31 fescue grass and at first use this mower plowed right through it, including some border areas of my yard that were 8" high and the motor barely even changed RPM! The cut quality was very nice, and everything worked like it should. I wish the plastic parking brake lever was more substantial, but the most important things - pedals, throttle, choke & PTO switch are all very solid. I would strongly recommend this to anyone buying a residential series Craftsman, Deere or any other competitor brand mower!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mower that preforms far beyond the price. I bought this lawn tractor in the early spring of 2011 and used it a full season. I mow 5+ acres and live in the woods. I don't rake the tons of oak leaves, I grind them up or blow them off the lawn with the mower. My lawn looks like a golf course now and I finish in one third the time. The short turning radius really saves time .If I could only change one thing it would be to put piviots on the front deck wheels so that you could turn faster without them scaring the lawn. Slow down on tight turns and it is no problem. Plenty of power for tall grass and an exellent cut. I have no doubt that I could sell these door to door by giving short demos.
