The Cut Cadet LTX Lawn and Garden Tractor offers many unique features to help maintain a crisp lawn. The wide mowing deck reduces the amount of passes you’ll need to make over the lawn. The heavy-duty twin blades ensure an even cut without an unbalanced run. A controlled position of the deck prevents the blade from cutting too close. The powerful engines provide the necessary strength to move the tractor and tackle the grass cutting workload. With manual and electronic PTO clutch control options, this series allows for several different attachments and swift control over the deck operations.
The size of your yard is one way to determine which Cub Cadet LTX Series is the best for your lawn. A small yard may not require the largest model. The width of the mowing deck may lower the number of passes, but it may cause difficulties in tight spots. The operation of a lawn tractor may also require attachments in a larger area to limit the clippings left on the lawn.
There are many factors that should be considered when deciding on the best model to meet the owner’s needs. One factor is the cost of the equipment compared with the needs of the lawn. A lawn that only requires some occasional clipping may not require a top-dollar lawn tractor. Another factor is choosing a model that comes with the proper attachments necessary for the lawn. Certain grasses grow quickly and increase the need for frequent cuttings. Lastly, it is important to purchase equipment that one can easily operate and troubleshoot if necessary. Fortunately, the Cub Cadet LTX Series comes with the support needed through their website and their standard limited-warranty. Peace of mind assures the owner that the correct model has been bought.
