How do you remove the blades they are on so tight I cant remove them.

How do you remove the blades they are on so tight I cant remove them.
Asked by: willie
Hi! I just replaced my stock blades with mulcher blades. I have a half inch socket wrench, and I used a regular hammer on the socket handle. It only took about 3 strikes to loosen the bolts. Be careful and make sure the blades are wedged solid. This blades are SHARP!!!

Will it mow in reverse or do I have to turn the blades off each time?

Asked by: Blake
Yes it mows in reverse! read the manual. I bought mine last spring, and the winter has been long, I now have to reacquaint myself with my buddy. I say buddy, because taking care of the lawn was actually a way out of the house for a few hours, and with weedeating, and keeping the machine clean, I always worked up a nice sweat, but, that's why I bought a pool too, nothing like living the suburban life. You just have to know how?...I personally send the wife to bingo.

Will this mower fit through a 48 inch gate?
Asked by: Bob
Yes, I bought this one because I have 48 inch gates. I put the mulch package on it so the side discharge is not there and it fits with about an inch or two on each side. If you leave the discharge chute on you can swivel it up to make it through the gate.

can it mow in revers
Asked by: guven
Yes, I do it several times each mowing. Just set the key in the proper position and hold the button until the light comes on. However, sometimes the light turned off and when I reversed the engine shut down. Noticed last time that I sometimes bump my right knee against the key, so I don't think it's the mower's fault.

XT1 Enduro Series LT 42 in. 547cc Fuel Injected Hydrostatic Gas Lawn Tractor with Push Button Start and Cub Connect App is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 1839.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from BEWARE: Nowhere in the specifications do they bother to tell you that you must be a heavy person... BEWARE: Nowhere in the specifications do they bother to tell you that you must be a heavy person to use this mower. Because of the "safety features", if you are not heavy enough, the mower will stall as soon as you try to release the safety brake. I don't know what the limit is, but it is well over 110 pounds. When I called Cub Cadet for help, all they said was they understood my frustration and to look on You Tube for help. Really? I just paid $1600 for a mower and that is the extent of your help? Most of the You Tube videos are outdated, so if you have to go that route be careful. The easiest fix is to take the switch out from under the seat, depress the button, and fix it in place. A good strong tape would work, but there is one You Tube video which shows drilling a small hole while the button is depressed then using a pin to hold it in place. That is what I did and it works. Now that I finally got to actually use the mower, I can tell you that it easily mows knee high grass in the rain.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lemon and crate issues I like the second reviewer hot it but was told it would be assembled on site..nope they don't do that so i fought with getting it off the crate for a day and a half while putting together seat and hood, steering wheel..not to hard after i got it off the crate i waited till next day to assemble battery . Checked oil full, added gas no problem..and go it back ired once and didn't seem to have a lot of power..finished up lawn cleaned it up. Let it cool and put in garage. Woke up to gas fumes all the way into the house from the garage...it was leaking gas all over from the fuel filter. Called home depot ,said i would have to call a Kohler tech in my area cone out to fix even though i had the regular warrentee and the extended i had to pay more...nope set up for them to take there lemon back ..i will get something else cost 1699. Paid 2100.00 with shipping and no assembly and extra warrentee just to start out on a bad note..nope i will get something else

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lawn tractor This thing is great. Cuts even, good hydrostatic drive system, push button start, and above all, fuel injected. Starts perfectly every time (beginning my second season on it with last season’s gas). Steering radius is very tight, not quite a zero turn, but dang good for a tractor type mower. The ride could be improved, as it tends to transmit every little bump to the seat, but I came from a small zero turn that lasted 10+ years. My only complaint: check behind your store if they assembled it. The hood cover almost flew off on the way home (snaps into the top of the hood) and the belt was not installed correctly, leaving said belt in much poorer condition than it should be at this age. I only found the belt problem today, when the mower threw the belt while engaging the blades. Upset me enough to write this review. Great product, poorly assembled at the store.

After about 2 months (12 hours of run time) the engine began to run bad after it warmed up. The engine began to run slow and then speed up likw the choke was sticking ir something in the carb bowl. I drained all the gas out and put in new and it ran fine for another month and then started to do the same thing. After shutting it down for about 2 mins and starting it back up it ran good for a few mins but then started to act up again. This seamed worse when enguaging the blades and putting the engine under pressure and the the engine would die. I had BPS pick this up and repair it and they claim they couldn't get it to act up. After $145.13 cost from BPS i have a very bad taste in my mouth. I'm not happy with this purchase. Unless Cub Cadet fix's this problem i would tell everyone don't buy these.

First my pulley gaurds sheared off and then with about 50 hours on my LT42 mower the idler pulley froze up and ripped my deck putting my mower unusable. . Beings how it was only about a year old i figured Home Depot or Cub Cadet would warranty this item with the 3 year warranty.. I called Osage Beach Home Depot (3) times and finally got put through to a manager who informed me i needed to call Cub Cadet.. Now after having my mower hauled to Camdenton they say it's (surprise) my fault. Cub Cadet says (by photo might i add) That my blade broke and went through the deck and i should have changed them sooner.. It really seems i would have known if my blade went through the deck and its funny that it didn't hurt anything else beings so close to the blade tower... Who changes blades 2 and 3 times a year to mow their lawn??? Any way that was a $1600 experience i will never do again...

We used it a dozen times last year. We pay a lawn service for most mowings because they edge and weed whip. Mowed our flat front yard this week, and got 2 swipes on the back, when something made a noise (had noise blocking head phones on) and it immediately stopped. No mowing, no engine. My husband took a little bit of it apart and the engine is locked up. I am sick. I mean crying sick because we didn’t buy an extended warranty (hundreds of dollars) and we just wasted all that money on a tractor that only was used 12 1/2 times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best option for the money I bought this mower after my late 80's Craftsman started having a 2nd motor failure. I only have a 1/2 acre lot, but I also needed the mower to pull my aerator around a few times per year. I have used the mower for 1 season now, and REALLY like it. I haven't suffered from the bouncy seat issue, probably because I'm 300lbs. The reverse switch is no issue because, despite was some on here say, you don't have to press a switch every time you back up in order to cut in reverse. You just have to press it again if you do something like restart the engine or trip the seat safety switch. The lack of a headlight switch is no issue either because they are LEDs and will last almost forever. The only issue I've had is that I'm starting to get a little squeaking in the steering column when I'm turning. A little lube at the right point should fix that though. It had no problem at all pulling my big behind and almost 200lbs worth of aerator up and down my sloped front yard as long as it could get traction.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality. No warranty coverage from Cub Cadet Bought this mower in August 2019. I put a total of 10.3 hours on it, and after mowing last Saturday, it wouldn't start. I noticeda puddle of fuel on the ground under the mower. I called Cub Cadet and found the closest authorized service center is 35+ miles from my home. On arrival at the service center, I notice this company sells just about everything except for Cub Cadet. I ask why they service it, but they won't sell it. The service guy tells me they used to sell Cub Cadet, but had too many warranty issues that Cub Cadet wouldn't cover and this was driving their customers away. So, I left the mower for service, and they call me back and tell me there was "black powder" in the carb. Whatever trash was in the carb caused the mower to leak gas and oil into the crank case. I'm told that Cub Cadet doesn't cover this, even though there are only 10.3 hours on the mower, and the mower was only 9 months old. $106 repair on a mower that is 9 months old, that cost me $1600 brand new. MTD bought the Cub Cadet brand, and they're running it into the ground just like all their other brands. Stay away from Cub Cadet, and anything made by the MTD conglomerate. They have put profits over quality, and have entered the death spiral.
