Default Is Cub Cadet Riding Lawn mowers Any Good ?

Well my Old Mtd gave up the ghost the other day . Cam lobes wore out on the motor. And I can't find a good used motor to put on for a replacement with out just having to do it all over again next year been down that road before . So I been in the Market looking to invest in a new Riding lawn mower . The one that I keep coming back to os a Cub Cadet Enduro Series looking at least with no less than 22 hp . My question is has anybody had any experience with the Cub Cadet recently.? Need to get the place mowed getting to be getting away from me since the Big Red 1 has been down . And looking to make a investment very soon.

Dont see many of'em around here. Not a good reputation I'm told.
I got 16 years out of a Craftsman, but Sears left here, and I'm now riding an Arrian I think its called. Good for last 2 years, and has adjustable wheels on all 4 corners.
Don't care for the zero turns. They cost too much, are expensive to fix, and suck mowin ditches.

Several of my neighbors have cub cadet riding mowers and seem to like them, We have a husqvarna that's been a good one for the past six years.and we have a cub cadet rear tine tiller that's been very reliable.

All I know is the Cub Cadet have Kohler engines which is my first choice. They also seem easier to get on and off over the JD's.

I think it's that little Kohler V4 isn't it? If so that is a good engine. On generators they can push about 15kw
prime power.

Yes I like the Kohler engine over Briggs here lately . Up here in my Neck of the woods all you have is Cub ,JD , and the rest is MTD at the other stores.Wanted to Check because I know MTD owns Cub Now. And My Last Craftsman I had didn't impress me . I cant do a zero turn because I have some hills on our property . One thing is for sure don't don't build them like Sherman Tanks anymore. Wish they bring back the Craftsmanship. But I guess that ship has sailed .

The Kohler on the Cub has the 24 and 26 Hp V twin and the other one has a Single Head 22 Hp But I gearing more to the V Twin. The only thing I didn't care for on the 22 hp Single Head is that it is fuel injected and I dont know of if it would be worth it on the long-run over a carb.
