What about the drive? Is it belt driven or shaft?
Gene 
from Ohio 
January 19, 2014
Answer
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.

Is there a hitch, if so, type, included on this mower?
Mike Kosydor 
from Mississippi 
October 07, 2013
Answer
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.

do you have wheel weights available?
Ted Melton 
from West Virginia 
September 06, 2013
Answer
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.
