Default Info needed on a Cub Cadet 1440, etc.

Hello Cub Cadet gurus. I have come across a neighbor who has a near mint 1440 for sale. I (and my bride) have missed having a GT since trading for our Deere CUT. I got comfortable on a CC 1811(Dad's) and a 782d (Grandpa's) as a kid. Any info on this 1440 would be helpful. Only intended use is a little mowing and towing carts/trailers. Is the engine (a Briggs I think) long lasting? Can a sleeve hitch, etc. be added? I've heard of some of the nightmares of the newer Cubs, I would guess this isn't included. Ballpark prices and ANY info would be much appreciated.

The 1440 was buit between 1992 to 1997. It had a 14hp V-twin Briggs avaliable in 42 or 44inch mowing decks. spring assisted mechanical lift and a electric PTO clutch a sleeve hitch wasn't avaliable but a Cat 0 spring assisted 3point was avaliable and you can still get it from MTD if not complete it can be gotten thru individual parts. The 1440 was Cubs Price point GT meaning it was the lowest price at the time and it had a Briggs and manual lift over a 16hp Briggs and Hydraulic lift found on its counter part the 1641 which is my favorite MTD made Cub Cadet. Never owned one but always want the 1641 I remeber at the time it was new back in the 1990's. For your intended purposes it should be fine. Hope this helps.

It does, thanks Sargeant. We'll see if we can convince the wife.

sorry i am late to the party on this thread. Here is a 1993 model 1641 i bought new and sold last summer, owned it 15 yrs and it never gave a lick of trouble. The front tires were shot and the seat was duct taped together was the only bad stuff on it.

Here is a price check for you...It had 660 hrs when i sold it and the buyer paid $750 for it. It sold within 3 days of when i advertised it and there were back up buyers waiting in case the first guy changed his mind.

My experience with the machine was very positive. I think a 1440 type model would be a good choice for your needs

I'm still using our 1440 we got in the 90's. Had to rebuild the 44" mower deck. Great mower and tractor...gas miser compared to the GT2550 imo.

I'm just very thankful I didn't trade it in like I did with the rest of my Cubs.

The 1641 is one Cub I would like to add to my collection. It's my favorite MTD made Cub Cadet.
