Q: There are a number of snow accessories for sale on this model. Snow removal is a much more intensive hub than cutting...is that sort of activity going to shorten the life of this model I.e. is it designed to handle it?
by Chuck from Connecticut on July 05, 2016

A: Chuck,

The Cub Cadet lawn tractors are equipped to handle snow removal. The only risk you run with this would be if you do not remove the deck prior to using any of the snow accessories as this will cause rust and can damage the deck. Cub Cadet has maufactured snow accessories that will be compatible with this model such as:
- Cub Cadet (46") Tractor Snow Plow Blade
-Cub Cadet (42") 3-stage Tractor Mount Snow Blower
-Cub Cadet XT1/XT2 Tractor Snow Cab

Q: will a deck from a 1045 fit the lt46
by Donald Weimer from Ohio on July 03, 2016

A: Donald,

Unfortunately this is not information that we will have available. I would recommend contacting Cub Cadet directly at 1-877-282-8684, for further assistance.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: does this model have power steering? my husband has had a stroke & has difficulty turing the wheel on our cub cadet that we have now

by Cindy from Missouri on May 14, 2016

A: Cindy - sorry, but none of the riding mowers that we sell are equipped with power steering.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Is this mower assembled and ready to start.
by Howard from Alabama on May 14, 2016

A: Howard - all of the riding mowers we sell are shipped in the original factory crating, and would require some degree of minor set-up before you could use it.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Does this mower have cruise control?
Does this mower cut in reverse?

by Cathy from Mississippi on May 10, 2016

A: Cathy - yes, the Cub Cadet LT46 lawn tractor does have cruise control. This tractor will also mow in reverse, but you will need to activate an override on the ignition switch (where the key goes in) each time you wish to mow in reverse.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Will it mow in reverse?
by Charles McCaffree from Texas on May 10, 2015

A: Charles - the Cub Cadet XT1 and XT2 series tractors all have a Reverse Mode setting on the ignition switch where the key goes. If the key is turned to this position on the ignition switch, the tractor can be operated in reverse with the mower blades engaged.

Great Mower And Smooth Transaction All The Way
I am NOT a 'small engine mechanic' or even very mechanically inclined so I cannot give a very 'technical' review but...I've been using an old rear engine riding mower the last 8 years, so of course this was a huge upgrade but, it really exceeded my expectations. The mower was fully assembled and crated expertly. I just added some gas and it cranked right up. It was easy to get off the pallet by just pulling out the trans disengage lever and pushing it off slowly.

The engine is powerful and... more

Great Mower, Shipped Fast, Packed Well!
This mower is easy to start, easy to use, and worth every penny so far. Mowers Direct was fast to ship it, it was packed well, and the shipping company folks were also very nice. It couldn't have been a better experience getting it to the house.

Mowers Direct had the cheapest price on the mower, even if it was just by a dollar. I did buy the bagger from home depot because that was cheaper there, but it's also a great addition.

As with my cub cadet push mower it seems to blow leaves to... more

"Yes, I would just say that the prices on accessories need to come down a bit, but the mower was the cheapest deal I could find and the service and shipping were perfect. The mower was put together, packed well on the crate, and got here fast. I couldn't have asked for better."

Cub Cadet Lt46
I chose this model because it had a Kohler motor to cut about 2 acres of grass. It was ready to go right out of the box.
I came close to buying the next size up for another $200 but eventually decided that this was enough tractor for the job.
This is a nice little mower and I like the fact that the piston liners are cast iron.

Just Amazed At How Nice Yard Looks
I have three lots. Been mowing with a 21" push mower. Took about five hours to now. Now with my Cub Cadet ONE HOUR TEN MINUTES. To me that is AMAZING!

Good Product
Powerful and simple to use. My wife says it's the easiest mower to operate that she has ever used. Starts instantly, runs very smoothly and does a great job on the lawn. We mow approximately 1-1/2 acres and can finish in about an hour.
Note * mower was delivered with TOO MUCH engine oil and within the first 15 minutes of operation, I had about 1/2 quart of engine oil all over the engine, deck and my feet. I was quite displeased with this situation and want to feed back to the supplier.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Fast, Features
Cons: Improper servicing at factory, Oil level too high on arrival, Dipstick looks to be not calibrated

This Cub Is Better Than I Expected!
I have two acres to mow and maintain. The cub with its hydro-static transmission is fast and very controllable, makes it easy to go slow in rough areas and speed up in the smooth areas all by foot controls. Also has ignition key setting which allows the operator to mow wile backing up.

This mower has cut mowing time by 30% when compared to 60 inch brush hog finishing mower pulled with Mahendra tractor. I have had the Cub Cadet for almost three months and have mowed my property three times... more

Great Product!
Do your research, I almost bought a John Deere d130 and read too many bad reviews about it glad I didn't. The cub cadet has exceeded my expectations it arrived on a crate and packaged well. After getting it uncrated I added gas to it and cranked right up. The 22hp Kohler is quiet and very powerful. I have 10 hours on it and it cuts great so far I have no complaints. If you're thinking about getting this unit don't hesitate to buy it.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable, Durable

The Cadillac Of Riders
First off, let's start with Mowers Direct. What an easy-to-navigate website, with simple formatting and easy to read unbiased reviews. The purchasing options are great, and certainly appreciated! The delivery of my LT46 was nothing short of flawless. The crate, packaging, and weather protection were just as I hoped for, with a brand spankin new Cub Cadet underneath the wooden skeletal system.

Now for the tractor! I absolutely love this machine! I have quite steep incline prone property to... more

Great Mower! Best Buy For The Money
Bought this to handle 3 acres on a newly acquired property, which had been bush hogged. I cut this once a month, so it is high each time I cut, and there are a couple of very good slopes. Machine handles it, frankly am using it to the limit, but it has not failed me yet. Really like the reverse mow feature that you can leave on, not have to mess with every time you want to back up.
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, Exceeded Expectations, Price
Cons: Traction at times, but that is not the mower's fault

A Tractor For All Seasons
Did a lot of checking to see who had liked or disliked this tractor, and I checked on brands and value. Cub Cadet came up as what I needed for mowing a good size lot.

My daughter and husband want to add the plow for the winter snow. This is in Pleasant Vally N.Y. It snows, the driveway is long, and you need to plow it.
