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.

Great Mower - Added To My Existing Cub Cadet Collection
Very happy with my new Cub Cadet. I purchased this after owning a LTX 1045 for 2 years. I'm moving the 1045 to a rental property I own and upgraded to a 1050 for home. I agree with the previous review that the deck wheels tend to dig into the ground on tight turns. That's the only thing close to a complaint I have. A retrofit of a swivel wheel mechanism would make this fantastic.

The Kawasaki engine starts immediately, runs extremely smooth, and is a lot quieter than my 1045 with a... more

Great Mower
This is a quiet mower with lots of power. It has made short work of my 3 acres. The only issue I can find is the front deck wheels don't pivot and on tight turns they will dig into the ground. I have not had it long enough to attest to the duribility. But as far as I can tell it is a solidly built machine.

Love Our Cub Cadet
We have 2 acres of grass to mow, our new 50" blades mow the yard under 3hours, used to take 8 hours with the old mower. Also used only 1/2 the gas. This is really great. The mower was delivered on time and was crated very well. Easy to uncrate. We put in the oil and gas adjusted the blades and started mowing. My son loves the new mower. Our yard in Bradford R.I. looks great.

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

Great Lawn Tractor
I mow 5 acres of high desert pasture grass in Southeast AZ. This is a comfortable riding tractor with a cruise control that's easy to use and will only let you go at the fastest optimum cutting speed. The mowing height lever is easy to use and has a lot of height choices. I love the large tires and the reverse cutting option. Most of the time the grass I mow is dry so it does create dust. No problem, I wear a mask, glasses and clean the easy to remove air cleaner with the air compressor... more

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

Great On Hills
This is the 3rd lawn tractor we've had for our current property. We mow about an acre and approximately half of it is on a hill. All of the mowers have been the same horsepower, but this is the only one that takes the hills easily and with great stability. The braking is good for the downhill mowing. Have used the mower for about 6 weeks.
Pros: High Quality, I'd Buy It Again, Well Balanced With Good Stability

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

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
