The Courage engine scares me, also. I hope Joe Consumer has enough sense to upgrade to the Kawi.
i paid more for a 13HP with a Command engine 18 yrs ago than they want at the Tractor supply for the higher HP courage engines today. Just sold my old command engines tractor with almost 800 hrs on it no problems still didn't smoke or use oil. i ck'd the youtube vids on the Courage engines and ran the other way.there's a reason they are cheaper,you get what you pay for. ~~Oldguy

Re: Cub Cadet XT series

Thinking of buying an XT2 42" this week to replace my old 850 hour JD L110 that I sold at a moving sale rather than bringing to our new house. My biggest question is about the ease of switching from mowing with a bagger to towing a spreader or utility trailer. It looks like both versions of the bagger attach to the tractor hitch, and removal doesn't look any faster on the the fastattach than the regular. Is there at least a way to add a second hitch behind that connector contraption? Maybe I'm spoiled, but I could remove and reattach the entire bagging system on that old L110 in <30 seconds. Changing from mowing to spreading would seem to be a common enough use scenario that the designers would make it quick & easy.

I picked up my bagger used, and it doesn't have the see-through tube, so I can't verify the new ones are the same, but my bagger has a second hitch right behind the one that attaches primarily to the hitch on my xt2. I have only tried using my cart, and the cart would catch on the bagger, so no dice there, but I'm sure some items would work. I have the fold flat cart, and I know many others have lower sides, so if you took the bags off they would work.

Actually, it is one of the newer MTD Powermore brand engines and almost any servicing information on them just doesn't exist, or at least easily accessible online. Did find an Operator's manual, but that doesn't help you much.

Thanks. The fold flat cart is the one I was also thinking of getting. Does yours work with the bags off but the hood still on? Alternately, how much of a pain is it to take the bagger off so you can use your cart?

Cart doesn't work with the hood attached. The metal latch that sticks out furthest likes to catch on the cart.

It isn't a huge pain to attach/detach. It is just unweildy to do as it's difficult to see when also holding the bagger.

I've been thinking about getting the wheelbarrow handles for my cart to use in the spring and fall when I need to bag.

Hey congrats on the new Cub toys.
I'm sure you'll be very happy with the quality of cut from the 42" deck just as I am with both of mine.
Keep us posted on how they work out for you.
