  6 Questions
Q: I purchased this machine this spring and love it. What snow blower or plow blade will fit it. I cant seem to find one.
by Thomas Gingerelli from New Jersey on August 02, 2014

A: Thomas - click on the link at the end of this e-mail. Both of the attachments shown would be compatible with your Cub Cadet LTX1050KW tractor: Cub attachments
by Jose, Product Expert

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: Does the LTX1050KW model 13w193ap010 come with power steering
by James Mccoy from Georgia on November 10, 2013

A: James - the Cub Cadet LTX1050 lawn tractor is not available with power steering.
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.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Are your mowers assembled when they are delivered?
by Arleen from Iowa on May 26, 2013

A: The mowers would be almost fully assembled, the unit would need the seat to be attached, the steering wheel to be put on and the negative battery cable to be attached. This is all for shipping reasons and very simple, it would most likely take you longer to get it out of the crate.

Powerful, High Quality Mower Handles Large Property With Ease
First, I never write reviews online, but feel compelled to do so for this product. Currently I have logged 14 hours of use on this Cub. I have used it for mowing, leaf mulching, (with the attached triple bagger which is of high quality) and hauling a cord of fire wood.

Purchasing this mower is one of the best decisions I've ever made. After a lot of research, I was between this mower and a John Deere. I decided on the Cub because of the features and extra cut width I got for the price.... more
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Exceeded Expectations, Fast

Buyer Beware.
This is my second purchase from Mowers Direct. Good price, great delivery. I chose this mower rather than a zero turn for mowing around the shop. I wanted something less delicate than an expensive zero turn. It is much faster than my old John Deere but not as fast as my Toro zero turn. I wanted the quality and durability of the Kawasaki engine. In my experience Briggs & Stratton are good but two bad experiences with Kohler and I'll never own another one.

The front, non pivoting deck... more
Cons: Durability, Poorly Designed

Warranty Smarranty
The only way this review gets 2 stars is by the fact that the mower has many nice features, but based upon very limited experience I will be surprised if they work for very long. Consider this a less than 1 star review. Don't buy this mower unless you hate the person that will be forced to use and service it. After less than 10 hours the deck belt broke and I wrote a review. It was far too gracious. I replaced the belt and just a few hours later the deck pulley came apart. I contacted Cub and... more

Was Looking For A Replacement For A Sears Lawn Tractor
Great mower! Was looking for a replacement for my Sears LT3000 and really didn't want to go the Sears route again. John Deere was a consideration but I'm glad I picked the Cub Cadet. It has so many features that the Sears model didn't. Was sold by the reviews as well as some of my neighbors also having Cub Cadets.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Features, Easy To Use

Cub Cadet Ltx 1050kw
The Kawasaki runs smoother than all the others. Good on fuel also. The hydraulic tranny works so neat. The only thing that I think should be chained is the front casters (which I will do later). Other than that, I think anyone will be very happy. Swivel casters is the way to go.

Just In Time!
I need to have about 3 acres of mostly field grass mowed around my house and all of my lawn care equipment was basically unusable. I purchased this Cub Cadet to bail me out. It has exceeded my expectations! Right out of the crate, it performed beautifully - very happy with this purchase and the transaction was smooth and fast!
Pros: High Quality, Durable
Cons: Heavy, Bad Instructions

Nice Mower
I've had this mower for about 1 yr now. It replaces a 30 yr old John Deere which was a great mower.
The Cub has the Kawasaki motor which the Deere had and was a selling factor as the Deeres motor was a great performer for it's 30 yrs. The reason for the new mower was that many other things were starting to fail after all the years of abuse. The Cub has a wider deck and a really nice cut which has cut my mowing time down for which I am grateful.

Unfortunately the mower deck belt broke within... more

Mower Is Everything I Expected
After a few adjustments to the mower deck, it performs very well. I took some time getting it out of the packing crate, but this only protected the Cub Cadet mower so I couldn't complain. It certainly makes mowing the 2+ acres go much faster.

I hope to get the snow blower soon since the weather is acting up and that can mean only one thing - lots of snow.

Garden Tractor
My Gardner loves it. You have to be careful on a slope. I ordered it on Thursday and it was to me on Tuesday. I did not expect such a fast and great service. Thank you, my previous tractor broke and my lawn was not mowed for 3 weeks and it did a great job.
