  5 Questions
Q: What about the drive? Is it belt driven or shaft?
by Gene from Ohio on January 19, 2014

A: Gene - the drive system on the Cub Cadet LTX series tractors are a belt drive system. However, several components must be removed and special tools used in
order to change this tractor’s transmission drive belt. It is not an easy change out unless you really know what you're doing.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Is there a hitch, if so, type, included on this mower?
by Mike Kosydor from Mississippi on October 07, 2013

A: Mike - the Cub Cadet LTX series tractors all include a standard hitch pin style hitch. You would use the hitch pin from whatever tow-behind attachment you are towing - the hitch pin itself is not included with the tractor.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: do you have wheel weights available?
by Ted Melton from West Virginia on September 06, 2013

A: Ted - the Cub Cadet LTX series tractors do not use wheel weights. The LTX tractors require a rear weight carrier and suitcase weights. The rear weight carrier is part #490-900-M060, and the 42 lb suitcase weights (sold individually) are 490-900-M059. We have both the rear weight carrier and the wheel weight in stock.

Q: What is the correct bagger for the Cub Cadet LTX 1042 KW (42) 18 HP Kawasaki Lawn Tractor. Is a triple bagger available for this model?
by Jesse Scott from Georgia on August 09, 2013

A: Jesse - the correct bagger for a Cub Cadet LTX1042 lawn tractor is the 19A30003000 twin bagger: 19A30003000 There is no triple bin bagger available for this model.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Can you plow snow with this tractor ?
by Michael Hoskavich from Pennsylvania on April 18, 2013

A: Michael - yes, the Cub Cadet LTX1042KW can be used to plow snow. This would be the optional plow blade that is compatible with this tractor: snow plow blade

2013 Cub Cadet Ltx 1042 Kw
Only had it for about 2 months, but it was easy to set up and started right away. Has been very reliable...but it's new too. (I mow about 2/3 acre)

Has several bonus features, that weren't on my old Honda tractor. Gas gauge, lights, hour meter, front bumper etc etc.

Cut's smoothly, but needs a higher setting for deck. It's set all the way up, but still lower than my old Honda tractor. (also cuts better so you can go a bit faster)

Love the hydrostatic trans, and tighter turning radius.... more

Cub Cadet Mower
After using push mowers for many years then older lawn tractors I was blown away by this machine. I didn't try out any others but read many reviews. I chose the Cub over a Craftsman because of quality over time mostly. Spending $2000 every few years isn't much fun so I want something that will last. I hope this machine holds up with care and maintenance. The hydrostatic transmission is unmatched. I have a back injury and there is no jerking like my other tractors. It cuts fast and clean and my... more

Just Purchased
This machine arrived at my home in 5 days in a very well built crate, removed one support on the crate and rolled the tractor off the crate. I've only been able to mow the lawn 1 time as winter has started to set in but I am impressed with this Kawasaki engine. Very quiet compared to Briggs and Kohler models I've owned in the past. Start up is much quicker as well with the manual choke. So far I am very impressed with the tractor and my experience with Power Equipment Direct was seamless .

A Great Mower
My mower came exactly when it was supposed to. I was glad I got the tail gate lift delivery. I don't know how you could get it off the truck otherwise. I have a long narrow driveway that the delivery truck couldn't drive down. The truck driver was great and he brought the mower right to my door with a hand dolly. Very nice of him to do. The mower went together easily. After putting in oil and gas it started right up and runs great. It does a very neat job of cutting my yard and with the... more

Could Not Wait To Cut
This is the first time I have purchased an item of this price on the web. I was amazed how easy and quick the transaction was. I used the check option and had to wait for it to clear the bank but it was worth it. I have been flogging second hand and third hand mowers for years and decided to buy new. When the tractor came in I could not wait to pick it up. The weather here in PA can be quick changing in March and I actually took the tractor out to cut. Wearing a knit cap and VERY warm... more

Just Got It
I just took shipment on my 1042 and I like what I've seen so far. Had a chance to put the twin bagger on and do leaves and it was great. Started right up, easy to operate, and much quieter than the Craftsman I had before. Looking forward to summer and seeing what it will really do.

Waiting For Warmer Weather
I have not got to start or use it as it has been too cold. Just as soon as I can get it gassed I will let you know what I think about it. However I did like the way it was shipped in the crate as that protected it very good.

p.s. Does it already have oil in the mower??
Pros: Yet To Use
Cons: Have Yet To Use

Dwight,
The tractor should already have oil in the crankcase. It is important to check the levels, but the majority of these are tested at the manufacturer and rarely drained.

One Of The Best New 1000 Series Tractors
This is probably the best 1000 series tractors on the market. You could pay more for a heavier duty tractor but for someone with 1 acre or less this is the best. I saw where some were having trouble with the deck bearings. This could be a problem with any brand. It is my opinion that if you just blow the grass and dust off instead of washing, the bearings will last a long time. The times that you do wash. make sure water doesn't stand on the deck for an extended period of time. My... more

Did A Lot Of Comparing Before I Bought This Tractor.
First, it is everything that I expected, from its Kawasaki engine, the Hydrostatic Trans, to the High Back Seat and the Cast Iron front axle and welded 9 gauge steel frame. Best of all, its made right here in America. I don't know who says you can't get quality in American made products but they should take a closer look at this Tractor and Cub Cadets attention to detail.

Enough of that, now lets talk about the Pro's. The Kawasaki engine starts as fast and easy or even better than my... more
