History of Cub Cadet Tractors
Cub Cadet is a brand from the USA with a history spanning more than one decade. It was founded in 1960 and introduced its first garden tractor a year later. According to the company representatives themselves, a lot has changed since then, including the lifestyle and needs of customers, but the company itself has changed. At the same time, its main goal is not innovation for the sake of innovation, but technological changes solely to improve usability and usability. Despite the fact that a fairly large number of competitors have moved their production facilities to China, Cub Cadet remains true to its original course and continues to produce high-quality gardening equipment in the United States.
The garden tractor is the ideal choice for owners of large areas that require periodic maintenance. Due to the wider mowing deck, work is done 2-3 times faster, and simple machine control is much less tiring than routine work with a manual lawn mower or trimmer. Garden tractors of this brand are distinguished by high speed of work, simplicity and comfort of control and extremely reliable, well-thought-out design. The entire modern model range of tractors is divided into 2 series: Force and Enduro. In general, they are similar, but they also have a number of important features.
Features Proprietary Steering Technology - Advanced Precision Steering Transmission makes the unit docile and manoeuvrable, especially useful in areas with flower beds, benches or gazebos.
Large grass catcher - rear discharge tractors are equipped with a dedicated nonwoven grass catcher that allows air to pass through efficiently. Its volume can reach up to 240 liters, which, coupled with a simple and convenient evacuation system that does not require leaving the seat, allows you to avoid distraction from work.
Two types of transmission - tractors are equipped with proprietary transmission systems Transmatic and Hydrostat. The first provides gear shifting without the need for stopping, and the second - smooth acceleration and stopping without using the clutch pedal.
Simple adjustment of the cutting height - the models have a positional height switch, which allows you to select and set the optimal cutting height within 3-9.5 cm. The ability to mow in reverse - you do not need to turn around to mow the missed areas.
Reliable materials - critical structural elements such as the frame and axles are made of steel and cast iron and are protected from corrosion.
Serviceability - The tractor hood is a one-piece design and can be easily tilted forward without the use of tools for easy access to the engine. Additionally, it is worth noting a couple more points related to "ordinary" tractors. Firstly, these are the installed engines - they use Cub Cadet's own products or engines from the well-known Briggs & Stratton company. Power, depending on the model, varies from 7.8 to 12.5 kW. Secondly, it is the cutting width that directly affects the working speed. In the most productive machines, it reaches 107 cm, which is almost 40 cm more than that of a manual lawnmower. Separately, it should be said about the Cub Cadet CC 1022 KHI model. It features an even more powerful Kohler engine (14.1 kW), larger, deep tread wheels and, most importantly, a purpose. Its main task is to mow tall grass, which other units simply cannot cope with. As for the aforementioned Enduro series, the machines presented in it are designed to perform the most difficult tasks. This is reflected in the significantly higher engine power (Kawasaki up to 16.9 kW), an enlarged grass catcher (up to 360 liters), a modernized control system that provides a minimum turning radius of only 17 cm and even a socket for charging a smartphone during operation.
