I bought a Cub Cadet once.... at about the three or four year mark the block cracked because all of the bolts backed out.

Hydraulic drives need oil. This means if you run the engine/pump slow you may be starving the hydraulic motor (transaxle) of the viral fluid it needs. This leads to mechanical damage.

I don’t know your situation or habits, but hydraulic systems should be run at a pretty good engine speed. Excess pressure and fluid is dumped back to the reservoir, as designed.

I'd sell the new one the very day they deliver it to your house.

You should have bought a Bolens. Here is a nice diesel:

Rather than that why not have them apply the full value toward a better one in the 2000 series line? I know more money but it'll save you money in the long run plus it'll be a nicer mower all around.


No car is as much fun to drive, as any motorcycle is to ride.

I tried to get him to buy a little Ford(Mitsubishi) tractor with turf tires and a belly mower off the PTO that was for sale.

After investigating the transaxle defect, Cub is delivering a new XT1 46 today.

They apologized and said that the drive was defective and should not have failed. The casting had a crack in it and it fractured.

They could have just replaced the drive, but chose to replace the mower.

I imagine that new XT1 still has the much-maligned K46 by Tuff Torq. My 6-year old Deere L130 has one too.

You can change to synthetic on those and it makes a big difference, I'm told.

I'm going to buy a spare complete unit and then rebuild the original with syn and the TT parts kits.
