Cub Cadet AGS 2130 Specifications
Weaknesses Poor traction on hills
Overall Purchased new in 1994 when Shaft Drive was first introduced, the one I have is actually one of the first 500 made.
Strengths Durability. I've owned since new (1995) and have over 900 hours on it. Yes, I've had to replace suspension parts and blades along the way; rebuild the starter; replace the battery ONCE; and replace the idler pulley and spindle bearings once. However, I've also changed the oil AND filter every 25 hr (rather than the 50/100 recommended).
Overall Great machine! Last of the Internationals.
Strengths Excellent lawn mower and reliable
Weaknesses The transmission started to slip and the service to restore the trani was poor. It was not satisfactory after the clutch job was done, it was only a little better and there was a 2 week warranty bad customer service. Can't anyone do the right repair?
The engine still has a run-on but if lowered to slow speed and idled for 1 minute it would not back fire. Still a good unit after 10 years and 500+ hours.
Overall I would buy one again but with another trani and larger HP.
