Strengths Power. Easy Start & use.
Weaknesses Freakin Transmission. The first unit I purchased Thursday 4.22.10 (Serial #: 1C100K40155) kept popping out of the 'REAR' tine mode. This happened every 30-45 seconds. I returned it and received #2 on 4.23 (Serial #: 1C100K40152). Started the unit after work and it was a monster for the first 10-15 mins. Chewed up everything...until it popped our of 'REAR' tine mode. After the initial failure, it repeated itself every 2-3 mins. After 15 mins I shut it off. I spent more tine cleaning, loading, and returning this unit than I have using it.
Overall If Cub Cadet / MTD could figure out what the problem is with the transmission (and fix it) I would be happy. However, having two (2) seperate units fall in 2 days - I will not purchase another Cub Cadet RT-65.
