:howdy:Cub Cadet forum, recently, well last summer, I was given a Cub Cadet Model# 1861with only approx 450 hrs on it (garage kept). It runs well ,however the brakes seem to be sticking, any thoughts on how to remedy this. ALSO, another problem is.. the mower deck was going up and down. This yr I tried it and it stays in lower position and when I try to raise it it makes a noise as if it's trying to lift but dosn't. any ideas or remedy for my dilemmas. How can you tell what size mower deck you have? at what points do you measure from?:thanku: To all who reads and for any feedback received. info seeker

Nice tractor. My neighbor has one that I get to work on sometimes.

Regarding the brakes, the place to start is to check their adjustment. That will lead to the problem. Could be linkage frozen up.

For the hydro lift, check the fluid level, then the linkages.

For the deck size, you need to move the outer blades so they are both perpendicular to the tractor and measure between the outer tips.

Do you have a Owners Manual? If not, send me a PM with your email address and I'll send one to you.

That is a nice tractor you have! Hope you can get some help with those problems. I'm a IH Cub Cadet man, so don't really know much about your 1861.

Here are a few links to try. You might get better help there!

Thank You so much Cub Cadet Forum and especially, USA Tractor Joe for leading me to links about my CC tractor, I will use it often. And to G-1 for specific info about my problems with brakes and measurements of a mower deck...MTF members are such a valuable source of knowledge and info. Thanks again
