Re: Cub Cadet XT series

IDK about everyone else talking about spring, but I don't have grass... I have snow. More expected today as well.
Sadly, I think I'm going to be using my 24" walk behind snow blower another year unless I find a used unit that fits my lawn tractor in the off season. Just have other things I need to replace/get first.
This year, I'm planning on: repairing some potholes in my driveway and sealing it, repairing garage roof, painting trim, replacing some garage doors, and likely replacing my string trimmer. I'm also replacing my car, so that's most of the budget right there.

Re: Cub Cadet XT series

We already have blooms and sprigs of grass peeking up thru the weeds but our yard is like a mushy sponge from all the rain. I just got caught in a heavy thunderstorm going to the post office to get wife's medicine that arrived after I had gone mid morning yesterday. I guess the local postal workers had to take a break to get caught up on their facebook'n and texting before putting out all the mail before closing at 11:00. The NWS is predicting a low in mid 30's in the morning and lows in mid 20's for Tuesday & Wednesday then warming back to lows in upper 50's with highs in mid 70's, and of course more rain. It's beginning to look like I may can get on the yard to mow sometimes in late July, lol......

Re: Cub Cadet XT series

Getting some dry weather put down the bug control stuff. Has anyone bought any new attachments for their tractor?

Re: Cub Cadet XT series

Has anyone wired their lights to a toggle switch? If you have can you send some pictures of what you used? Thanks

Hunter I don't have a picture but did some wiring on my old Cub and what I did was determined the neg/grnd. wire to the device, spliced in a heavy amp rated toggle switch then mounted it on the dash. Good luck.

Got a new bigger spreader, the old one broke. This one is an Agri-Fab that holds 110 lbs and mostly metal parts.

Re: Cub Cadet XT series

I just fired mine up today to grind up all leaves from last year and cut the grass extra short before it starts growing. Have to do some serious greasing of the steering now. It feels a little too stiff from the last season.

Did you check the air in tires, maybe a bit low. Just a thought.

Re: Cub Cadet XT series

Anyone have the maintenance schedule on my XT1 LT46 with the 22hp Kohler? Plugs and gas filter. etc. I can't find mine because the old lady put it away...

Re: Cub Cadet XT series

Hey all. I am highly considering the purchase of an XT2 LX46 this spring. I recently sold a John Deere LX188 that had a solid drivetrain but the previous owner didn't take very good of other things. It needed too much money into it for me to hold on to it. Anyway, I have a little over 3/4's of an acre and it's relatively flat. I don't plan on doing anything else with the mower besides mowing in the warm months. No attachments planned right now but wouldn't mind having a blade to push a few inches of snow here and there. I don't want to stress the K46 trans too much though either.

Would the model I am interested in me serve me decent for many years? The XT2 LX42 is an option as well but I liked the idea of an electronic PTO, but maybe that isn't a huge deal? Anything else I should look for? For the price and quality it seems these Cud Cadets are hard to beat.

Thanks!

Does that PTO just have a cable that pulls a pulley arm to engage the belt? My old Huskee had that and it never gave me problems.
