Cub Cadet LT 1024 Specifications
Strengths Smooth ride
Weaknesses Deck does not follow the gound well, digs in on dips and the Briggs and Stratton engine exploded with only 41 hours and had been regularly maintained, now waiting to see if warranty will come through. A bit slow
Overall Other than engine and minor deck issues, seems to be OK
Strengths power,turning radius
Weaknesses I wish it would go faster
Overall I have put 215 hours on this thing and it can't be beat. Also it is good to know that it is backed by a dealer who stocks the parts and knows the mower inside and out.
Strengths GOOD SMOOTH CUT WHEN IT'S RUNNING CORRECT
Weaknesses I bought this mower in April of 04 and mowed with it about three times before it started giving me problems. I've mowed my yard with it twice this summer and the rest of the time it's been in the shop being fixed . The picked it up yesterday after a five week stint in the shop and it still isn't fixed.
Overall My advice .....save your money and buy a KUBOTA or JOHN DEERE.
Strengths So far this mower has been very strong and realiable. It is able to cut overgrown areas with ease. I am also able to cut 2.5 acres in about 3.0 hours.
Weaknesses Lowes didn't deliver an owners maunal or a parts manual. I have not been able to get one from Cub Cadet by using the serial # and Model #.
Overall So far it has been a great mower!
Strengths Good as any other mower so far. Plenty of power for residential lawn mowing. Easy to use. Cruise etc... mows low or high. $1999 at Lowes. Got it for $1799 because of scratches from show room floor. (Check Lowes web site - I hear they have 10% off coupons)
Weaknesses PTO shuts off when you go in reverse. Turning radius is a little bit wide. Only had it a short while.
