How does it do on sloped yard i have a 20 degree slope and my older 54” cub cadet mower tires spin going up

Asked by Rush April 20, 2021
2
Answers

Rush = My older {54"} Cub Cadet's Tires "spun" while trying a 20 degree slope ...... will this Unit be different? {Of Course NOT! ....} a) - 100% of Current Tractor-Mowers ALL have and utilize Turf-saving Tire Treads. b) - YOU have been very fortunate w/ Older Unit on 20 degree Slope & only experienced spinning tires ... Unit might have "tipped-over" upon YOU, instead. c) - Mowing (back 'N forth) sideways is never recommended.

Asked by CRW July 17, 2020

Answers

I’ve had mine for 3 months & love it. The prefab deck is a plus & it’s solid. It feels rugged, it looks rugged, it is rugged. I mow down small trees, blazing trails in the woods. The basic parts (air/oil filter, spark plugs) are easily accessible. It rides nice. Handles nice. My biggest complaint is the lack of lower back support & the super sensitive safety seat. Just making minor adjustments can turn the blades off. If you stand up the engine shuts off. You can apply the brake to keep engine on while you step off but the blades always cut off. If you back up & don’t turn the ignition switch & push the button, blades shut off. This is may be a government mandate more than a manufacturing issue so all riding mowers probably have same annoying feature. The hydromatic transmission is very nice. No more clunky gear shifting. Check out the video to see it in action.

From my experience from different mowers, this one does fine. Pretty much same as most others. The larger rear tires seems to give you a slightly better lift for these types of terrains

Why doesn’t the top hood slide on? I lined it up and tried several times.

the hood is cracked and the hood hinge is broken. this may be a contributing factor in our mower.

Cub Cadet No More
Consumer lawn mowers are not complex machines and I expect to be able to repair most issues that arise. When a consumable item like a belt breaks it should be a fairly straightforward repair. The deck belt is very simple to replace, but it is a completely different story for the transmission drive belt. Almost like the engineers have intentionally done this to prevent consumer replacement. The straightforward method would be to remove the driveshaft bolt and slide off the PTO pulley and clutch. However, based on a YouTube video I found the geniuses have used red loctite on the bolt, making it nearly permanent. Also, the guides to prevent the drive belt from slipping off the pulley leave only 1/8” clearance between them and the pulley. Great! Except they are bent pieces of the motor mount and not adjustable. This disaster coupled with the idler pulley that has to be disassembled in the center of the machine to thread the belt through only serves to increase the irritation. I had to unbolt the engine from its mount and unbolt the exhaust to eek out the precious space needed to maneuver the drive shaft enough to barely force the belt between the guide and pulley. The second flaw of many with this lawn mower is the reinforcement welded to the front underside of the mower deck. It acts as a shelf to collect grass so it can rot and destroy the deck over time. No machine is perfect, but MTD seems to be purposefully trying to make things difficult for their customers

Good powerful lawnmower. Mows very clean and level. Using it to mow about two acres of uneven gound. The large engine does like the gas but it never lacks in power. No problems with the mower. The seat is comfortable but does make a lot of popping noise due to the large springs shifting. I like the electric blade engagement and the cruise control.

There is not much to say about this thing other than how freaking awesome of a well built mower it is, WHAT A BEAST!!! My last Cub Cadet lasted 12+years, and some of the same parts still work on the new one, as if I will ever need them, but still... nice!! The fabricated deck is phenomenal, its fast, cuts everything right the first time, stripes my lawn beautifully and makes a very quick job of it all. Man does that engine purrr, its just beautiful. I wish they still made chainsaws, would buy that in a heartbeat.
