Not sure about the Husqvarna,but my cub is two years old,and it's the last one I will buy.(I've had four in The last 25 years) my humble opinion? POS! Bagger keeps falling off while mowing,battery failed in first year(got a new one from dealer) I bought it from a cub dealer,not a big box store. Next one will be a Deere!

Mick, I bought a John Deere and won't buy one again. John Deere rips you off big time on parts...can't get them anywhere else but at JD. Set of three high lift mowing blades are over $150.00.

Not sure if this still applies, but I bought a 20hp Cub about 6 years ago after comparing it to Husqvarna and Deere and the Cub won out. Bigger bang for the buck. Cast iron vs steel axles, much sturdier tranny, thicker gauge steel on the deck and better engine (mines a Kohler though). Im not a fan of Briggs and Stratton. Unlike Mick, I have had no problems with it. Two of my friends and my father-in-law also have fairly new Cubs with no problems. This is Deere country, but more people around here are getting sick of "paying for the green paint." Mine is made in the USA. Don't think all Deere's are. Good luck, John

Well I've had my Deere LT155 for 15 years. Kohlear's blowing oil and I've had steering problems twice because of a slop I have to mow. But it's been a good tractor to me. Maybe I should look at the Deere's again to.

Anybody else ?

Thanks

No offense guys,But mowing grass really sucks! Thats why I put down blueberry sod all around my new house lot, All you have to do is burn it every two years. That frees me up too drink more beer!

Nothing but Deere for me for the last 20 yrs. I have their industrial equipment as well. I stuck with John Deere as the parts are readily available when I do have a break down. Nothing more frustrating than waiting for parts to be shipped in. Also when the mower is 10 plus years old they don't discontinue making part supplies.

I have a Cub tank commercial model purchased from the dealer new 11 years ago. Never had any trouble, one deck bearing in all that time.


Thanks, Phil

Cub cadet Z FORCE zero has the commercial pumps,mine has 21.5 kaw. Nothing but good things to say. Grease pulleys ever 10 hours,and keep it cleaned out underneath.

I won't pay for the green.

Cub Cadet zero turn with the Kawasaki. Great little unit. Had it for 3 years now and no problems. Do not wash the deck out with the water jets (will rust according to the dealer. I checked out all the brands I could find and they seemed like the best for the money.


Looking for Canadian Imperial and Canadian North Star.
