Re: What did you do to your Cub Cadet today?
Not acturally today, but about a week ago. I sold my last Cub Cadet GT2550. After having repowered it, adding rear bumper, oil cooler and all I realized that if I kept it, I'd have to purchase a new deck. The deck held up just as well as the 2146 I bought new in about 2000. Having purchased a 1994 John Deere LX 178 nearly ten years ago and seeing that the deck has held up so well, I decided to go all Deere now. I purchased a 1998 JD 445 and am loving it! Sorry Cubbers, but in the name of sanity it had to be done. Both Cubs were good to me, but the sorrowful decks made me leave.
