  5 Questions
Q: What about the drive? Is it belt driven or shaft?
by Gene from Ohio on January 19, 2014

A: Gene - the drive system on the Cub Cadet LTX series tractors are a belt drive system. However, several components must be removed and special tools used in
order to change this tractor’s transmission drive belt. It is not an easy change out unless you really know what you're doing.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Is there a hitch, if so, type, included on this mower?
by Mike Kosydor from Mississippi on October 07, 2013

A: Mike - the Cub Cadet LTX series tractors all include a standard hitch pin style hitch. You would use the hitch pin from whatever tow-behind attachment you are towing - the hitch pin itself is not included with the tractor.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: do you have wheel weights available?
by Ted Melton from West Virginia on September 06, 2013

A: Ted - the Cub Cadet LTX series tractors do not use wheel weights. The LTX tractors require a rear weight carrier and suitcase weights. The rear weight carrier is part #490-900-M060, and the 42 lb suitcase weights (sold individually) are 490-900-M059. We have both the rear weight carrier and the wheel weight in stock.

Q: What is the correct bagger for the Cub Cadet LTX 1042 KW (42) 18 HP Kawasaki Lawn Tractor. Is a triple bagger available for this model?
by Jesse Scott from Georgia on August 09, 2013

A: Jesse - the correct bagger for a Cub Cadet LTX1042 lawn tractor is the 19A30003000 twin bagger: 19A30003000 There is no triple bin bagger available for this model.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Can you plow snow with this tractor ?
by Michael Hoskavich from Pennsylvania on April 18, 2013

A: Michael - yes, the Cub Cadet LTX1042KW can be used to plow snow. This would be the optional plow blade that is compatible with this tractor: snow plow blade

Good Mower
I was in between a Husqvarna and a John Deere for quite sometime and was trying to decide which engine was the best choice. I started looking into Kohler and Briggs but then started reading up on the Kawasaki engine and how much better they were. After doing some research on Mowers Direct I decided on this Cub Cadet with the Kawasaki engine. It was shipped to my door within a few business days. I elected to pay extra to have it shipped to me in a truck with a tommy gate and I would recommend... more

A Great Machine
I've been struggling with a competitor's lawn tractor for 5 years and spent more time on maintenance & repair than I have on mowing, really. In one day I accomplished more with this new Cub Cadet than I ever did with my old lawn tractor. It's powerful, rugged and fast. The multiple features and ease of handling make it fun to mow my lawn. It also incorporates several features that make it safer to use than my old mower. Oh, and did I say it is comfortable and easy on both my back and my... more

2013 Cub Cadet Ltx 1042 Kw
Only had it for about 2 months, but it was easy to set up and started right away. Has been very reliable...but it's new too. (I mow about 2/3 acre)

Has several bonus features, that weren't on my old Honda tractor. Gas gauge, lights, hour meter, front bumper etc etc.

Cut's smoothly, but needs a higher setting for deck. It's set all the way up, but still lower than my old Honda tractor. (also cuts better so you can go a bit faster)

Love the hydrostatic trans, and tighter turning radius.... more

I have talked to factory tech's several times and they are very courteous and I have ordered belts and blades from them.

I have not had any problems with this mower and I use it on my lawn every week.

When it comes time to replace this mower I will buy another Cub Cad

Make sure you get tailgate service off the truck. It took some effort to uncrate, but well worth the time. I would sure purchase again.

Cub Cadet Mower
After using push mowers for many years then older lawn tractors I was blown away by this machine. I didn't try out any others but read many reviews. I chose the Cub over a Craftsman because of quality over time mostly. Spending $2000 every few years isn't much fun so I want something that will last. I hope this machine holds up with care and maintenance. The hydrostatic transmission is unmatched. I have a back injury and there is no jerking like my other tractors. It cuts fast and clean and my... more

This machine arrived at my home in 5 days in a very well built crate, removed one support on the crate and rolled the tractor off the crate. I've only been able to mow the lawn 1 time as winter has started to set in but I am impressed with this Kawasaki engine. Very quiet compared to Briggs and Kohler models I've owned in the past. Start up is much quicker as well with the manual choke. So far I am very impressed with the tractor and my experience with Power Equipment Direct was seamless .

A Great Mower
My mower came exactly when it was supposed to. I was glad I got the tail gate lift delivery. I don't know how you could get it off the truck otherwise. I have a long narrow driveway that the delivery truck couldn't drive down. The truck driver was great and he brought the mower right to my door with a hand dolly. Very nice of him to do. The mower went together easily. After putting in oil and gas it started right up and runs great. It does a very neat job of cutting my yard and with the... more

Could Not Wait To Cut
This is the first time I have purchased an item of this price on the web. I was amazed how easy and quick the transaction was. I used the check option and had to wait for it to clear the bank but it was worth it. I have been flogging second hand and third hand mowers for years and decided to buy new. When the tractor came in I could not wait to pick it up. The weather here in PA can be quick changing in March and I actually took the tractor out to cut. Wearing a knit cap and VERY warm... more

Just Got It
I just took shipment on my 1042 and I like what I've seen so far. Had a chance to put the twin bagger on and do leaves and it was great. Started right up, easy to operate, and much quieter than the Craftsman I had before. Looking forward to summer and seeing what it will really do.
