Cub Cadet LT1050 riding lawn mower

Our LT1050 was purchased in 2008. We have over 400 hours on it. We use it to cut our high school's two baseball fields and drag the infields. We have gone through 3 cutting belts and one clutch and I am on the internet looking how to change a drive belt.

We have learned how to quickly re-install the cutting belt. We found that if you raise the deck before you turn the blades on, you won't jump the belt. Also check the bolt that holds the tension pully. If it loosens, there is more play at start up.

Also, to protect the clutch make sure you are at a dead stop when you engage the blades. I think we damaged our clutch by turning the blades off and on too much.

Bad Investment
by: Jeff

I just bought a LT 1050 last year 2011, after 6 hours of mowing the tractor got hot and wouldn't start. I called cub and they told me to take it to a authorized dealer, they changed the shear pin, fuel filter and charged cub a big price and it still does the same thing. Cub won't take it back but i tink it's a ground or coil problem and it looks as if they techs are not smart enough to figure it out. I will never buy another one as long as i live. When you see one run the other way with your money.
