Got my new Cub Cadet zero-turn mower today.

    What a nice machine! 42" deck, so it can sneak around my little fruit trees better than that old John Deer 318 with its 50" deck. Plus, the Cub is pretty zippy and ought to cut mowing time, even with the smaller deck.

    I'm going to park the Deere out by the road with a sign offering it for $800. That should be attractive to somebody, since I can't find one on-line for less than $1000. Very tough old tractors with frame-members heavy enough for a pickup truck.

    I have a Cub Cadet tractor, the twin cylinder Kohler engine model. I've been riding mowers since I was ten and it is really nice, IMHO the best I've had.

    Enjoy yours!

    Thanks. It's been raining since I got it, but the sun is peeking out now. I'll have to police the yard and mow tomorrow.

    My nephew bought the Deere for the "street" asking price - no problem. It is a very nice tractor. I still like the Cub Cadet better, though it can be tricky in the corners. The lever-steering/speed control can be a bit hard to contend with.
