  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

Did A Lot Of Comparing Before I Bought This Tractor.
First, it is everything that I expected, from its Kawasaki engine, the Hydrostatic Trans, to the High Back Seat and the Cast Iron front axle and welded 9 gauge steel frame. Best of all, its made right here in America. I don't know who says you can't get quality in American made products but they should take a closer look at this Tractor and Cub Cadets attention to detail.

Enough of that, now lets talk about the Pro's. The Kawasaki engine starts as fast and easy or even better than my... more
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Features, Durable, High Quality
Cons: Expensive, Instruction Need A Little Work

Looked Long And Hard For The Right Mower
While looking for the mower I found out the the Home stores offer different models than the Dealers. This was true for the 3 top brands I was looking at, John D, Husvarna, and Cub Cadet.
Different engines, transmissions, seats and features.

So after knowing what features, engine etc. we wanted, it was clear we needed a dealer type model.
So then we started looking for dealers that had the model we wanted for a good fair price.
Between the 3 manufactures, the Cub Cadet had the features at... more

Good Machine
I had a John Deere LT150 with a 38" deck which worked well on my property, and I knew just how wide a space I could fit through between trees and on various walking paths. The 42" deck, though only 4 inches wider, is taking some cautious getting used to, but today after my first mowing, I am pleased with the Cub Cadet's smooth handling and smooth, quiet Kawasaki engine. This engine is an obvious step above what I had and came highly recommended by my local small engine repair and... more

"Mowers Direct has a great selection of machines. They shipped right on my requested schedule. The machine arrived surrounded by a fully protective and bolted together pallet and covered in easily removable plastic covering. The oil level was spot on. I added 93 octane gas with fuel stabilizer. The lawn tractor started right up on the first crank. So far, excellent all around."

Great mower and I would highly recommend the Kawasaki engine over the Kohler - I had a Kohler in my previous mower and from day one it was hard to start.....mower is great - my only complaint is the instructions to prepare the mower for the first using did not include to check the bumper to be attached correctly - my first 20 minutes it fell off and hit the blade and bent it.....it was not properly attached....other than that, great mower, quiet and rarely needs choke to start, even on the... more

My Cub Cadet
I've used my Cub Cadet for the last 9 years that now has 3800 hrs. Amazing machine with strong mowing power regardless of the height of the grass. I mow with it twice a week and it leaves the lawn in great condition at both of our farms.

Great Tractor
Great experience. I did a lot of comparing on this site and others and decided on the Cub Cadet. I sat on my couch and ordered my tractor on Sunday night and unloaded it off the truck on Friday. Took about 20 minutes to remove from the crate. Had to add a little oil, fill the gas, connect the battery and I was test driving it in no time. I have used it three times already to mow and a few times towing a trailer loaded with wood chips. Nice smooth operation and that signature Cub Cadet cut. Lots... more

Wrong Used Fuel Filter Put On This Mower
From the first time I used the new mower it stalled and then quit running. Called the company I purchased my Cub Cadet from and they said they needed to pick it up and bring it in to work on it. This would have cost $50 both ways. I then changed the air filter with a new one I purchased. This did not work, so I took the fuel filter off and it was FILTHY. Purchased a new fuel filter, that looked nothing like the one I had taken off, and my mower has worked like a charm since. Feel someone... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store
Cons: Bad Instructions, Part, Part From Other Mower Put On This Mower, Wrong Part

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
