Cub Cadet Lt 1045 Reviews

  • I had a problem with the belt. The CubCadet team was extremely helpful and quick in getting the part I required. The transmission is reportedly idle at a high rate and I can be able to hear it “whine” when I pay attention however, after reading reviews, it appears to be a frequent problem.
  • I own a professional rider with zero turns. I recently switched from a Toro to a Cub Cadet. Toro was my first choice, but I came across a used model that was available at a reasonable price. The Cub is a powerful engine and cuts well.
  • Purchased this on the basis of pricing and the five-star rating. We have a big yard, but no slope and this mower will work for us.
  • I purchased the Cub Cadet Ltx 1045 second used and it was in excellent condition. It is extremely efficient in cutting and I love the pedal that is easy to operate in reverse. It’s a great mulcher. The only thing I dislike is the fact that it’s difficult to tell where you’ve mowed and leaves a somewhat unclean finish. However, it’s a small price of a top-quality style machine.
  • This beast of a mower can be free-reign over grassy hills and rolling fields. It can rip through the tall grass, without issue. The largest mower I’ve used yet, with amazing power!

Final Words

Should you purchase the item or do you not? That’s the topic on many of minds. This lawn mower is constructed with a powerful capability and power that permits greater use, as well as the use of various attachments.

It’s at a which makes it an automatic purchase in the event that you purchase a tractor that is in good condition.
