  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.

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

Purchased At Lowe's New 2005
I have talked to factory tech's several times and they are very courteous and I have ordered belts and blades from them.

I have not had any problems with this mower and I use it on my lawn every week.

When it comes time to replace this mower I will buy another Cub Cad

I would recommend this mower to my best friend.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Reliable, Great Company

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.

"Hard to believe the ease with which this transaction was made with this large a purchase. Shipping was awesome with the tractor really protected and reasonably easy to unpack when it arrived. No cost shipping was tremendous. The extra discount for payment with a check is tremendous as well. When I had questions, everyone was very pleasant and eager to help."

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

Looked Long And Hard For The Right Mower
While looking for the mower I found out the the Home stores offer different models than the Dealers. This was true for the 3 top brands I was looking at, John D, Husvarna, and Cub Cadet.
Different engines, transmissions, seats and features.

So after knowing what features, engine etc. we wanted, it was clear we needed a dealer type model.
So then we started looking for dealers that had the model we wanted for a good fair price.
Between the 3 manufactures, the Cub Cadet had the features at... more

Good Machine
I had a John Deere LT150 with a 38" deck which worked well on my property, and I knew just how wide a space I could fit through between trees and on various walking paths. The 42" deck, though only 4 inches wider, is taking some cautious getting used to, but today after my first mowing, I am pleased with the Cub Cadet's smooth handling and smooth, quiet Kawasaki engine. This engine is an obvious step above what I had and came highly recommended by my local small engine repair and... more

"Mowers Direct has a great selection of machines. They shipped right on my requested schedule. The machine arrived surrounded by a fully protective and bolted together pallet and covered in easily removable plastic covering. The oil level was spot on. I added 93 octane gas with fuel stabilizer. The lawn tractor started right up on the first crank. So far, excellent all around."

Great mower and I would highly recommend the Kawasaki engine over the Kohler - I had a Kohler in my previous mower and from day one it was hard to start.....mower is great - my only complaint is the instructions to prepare the mower for the first using did not include to check the bumper to be attached correctly - my first 20 minutes it fell off and hit the blade and bent it.....it was not properly attached....other than that, great mower, quiet and rarely needs choke to start, even on the... more

My Cub Cadet
I've used my Cub Cadet for the last 9 years that now has 3800 hrs. Amazing machine with strong mowing power regardless of the height of the grass. I mow with it twice a week and it leaves the lawn in great condition at both of our farms.
