  1. Mystery Bits - what are these? SOLVED & REVEALED !!!!

    What Is It ???
    Actually, isn't that what this "What Is It?" forum is all about? Identifying unknown objects? Seems like there should have been plenty other fun guessing games here after Mystery Bits. I know kbeitz has a pretty endless supply of odd gadgets and parts...
  2. Mystery Bits - what are these? SOLVED & REVEALED !!!!

    What Is It ???
    Thanks DJ! Not much new tractor-wise last couple years (part of why I wasn't on here much lately) but I did just inherit a Cub 3204 so I suspect I'll have something to ramble about again in the near future...

    And you wouldn't be the first!
  4. Old GT3204, but new to me

    Cub Cadet Forum
    @B.B. - yep 44" deck. @Oaktodd - Thanks for looking up the mfg date. I knew somebody had the secret decoder ring! I looked up the air baffle and it looks familiar.. I think it was detached so I piled it in the trailer with some other loose items. Hmm note to self - go locate it and put it...

    What Is It ???
    Anybody remember this thread? I haven't been on here for a few years, thought I'd dredge up something ancient just for fun. It's only 4 years old. I know, I'm awful. :hide:

    Greybeard - thanks! Hopefully she'll be even nicer once I get er running. Ray2 - you're saying the broken headlight assembly is a common problem? Any recall that you're aware of? That's great about adding to the hydraulic system. I'm sure there have to be a few threads about that on here...
  7. Old GT3204, but new to me

    Cub Cadet Forum
    Hi all. I haven't been on here in a while... I have a 2007 i1050, got it used in 2008. Has been my only tractor all this time - used the heck out of it, including stuff probably beyond it's intended use. The links in my signature line are about all that stuff. Well, FIL recently passed away...
  8. Folding 4x8 flatbed assembly [pics]

    Just curious, how do you get the tractor on the trailer? Do you tilt and drive on, and if so how do you make it stay tilted while driving onto it?
  9. Animal Dethatcher?

    Landscape and Yard Discussions
    Thanks everyone for the ideas. Seems like the consensus is probably skunk(s). I did lift the turf looking for grubs earlier and found none, but did see lots of fat earthworms. Doubt it's an armadillo. Looks like they don't range this far north. Plus those pictures of armadillo damage SonnyT...
  10. Animal Dethatcher?

    Landscape and Yard Discussions
    Rochester NY area... last week cut the grass, put the LT to bed... Got up next morning, found this had happened to my freshly cut lawn: Looks like a big 'ol dethatching, to the extreme - lots of turf completely ripped out at the roots. (But I don't remember dethatching...) Here's a...
  11. Just Venting: removal of mower deck is a P.I.T.A.!

    Cub Cadet Forum
    I'm embarrassed to admit I do the same thing.. I use an air wrench to remove and (ahem) replace blade nuts. It's just so easy. The tightening torque is, eh.. "more than a skosh and less than a heap". Totally unscientific. My compressor is set to about 90psi. Air wrench is a Husky, set on...
  12. Cub Cadet LT 1045 Please Help!!!

    Cub Cadet Forum
    espookid, I think rcbe probably has it right. From the i1050 owner's manual (not your model but close enough): "LCD Hour Meter Display The hour meter display is activated when the key switch is turned to either the “NORMAL MOWING” or the “REVERSE CAUTION MODE” switch positions. When the key...
  13. i1042 Electrical

    Cub Cadet Forum
    Wow, way to revive a 4-year old thread! Thanks for posting that, jimbir. I checked it against the "Cub Cadet Workshop Service Repair Manual for i1042 i1046 i1050". Differences are that the schematic in that manual has a 12v cig lighter outlet shown, includes circuit numbers, and has some...
  14. Add me to i Series owners

    Cub Cadet Forum
    Too bad it's a little worse for wear, but hopefully it'll perk up with a little TLC. I've gotten a lot out of mine so far. Check your PMs for a note from me about the service manual.

    Backyard Round Table: L & G Tractor Related Topics
    Hi McGilliski, I have the 2007 i1050 (bought used in 2008). One of it's advantages is a wider stance which makes it good on hills. I should point out I don't have steep hills myself so I can't attest to this personally, but I have read other i-Series owners comment it's very stable on hills...

    Hey Dwayne, thanks for the kind words! I'm flattered you'd join MTF just to say thanks. But having joined, I think you'll find it worthwhile to stick around and even post your own thoughts and fun projects. I certainly learned a lot from the other members over the years. What comes around...

    Welcome to the club Don! There are a few links in my signature for additional postings about my experiences with the i-Series.
  18. What will help keep grass from sticking to underside of deck

    Backyard Round Table: L & G Tractor Related Topics
    I definitely have the sand already.. my soil is almost 100% sand. For blades I use Gators. Sort of high-lift (well, lift and push to center). Unfortunately even with all the sand, I still get gunk. I think it's the moisture content that causes the problem.
  19. What will help keep grass from sticking to underside of deck

    Backyard Round Table: L & G Tractor Related Topics
    Hi James, Sorry for the slow reply. I'm not on MTF as frequently as I'd like lately... As you suspect, I've pretty much resigned to the fact that there is no way to really prevent this issue, only to treat it. Pulling the 50" deck off (and getting it back on) is a bit of a bear. I will...
