  • WHY, can't I leave things alone ?

    I was offered such a good deal on a cub cadet & when I saw the built in cup holder I had to have it.Well, in one week I had started jacking with it.I always seem to be doing this to things I buy.Does anyone know of a cure for this or is it hopeless ? And please don't laugh at the welds.
    thanks

    What Model Did You Get?

    I bought a last year model 1046 and love it. With the Kohler v-twin, it's like i'm riding a harley-davidson inspired mower!!

                    yup, definitely you are bitten by the bug and are now "past the point of no return" On ours, we beefed the frame, added 400lbs of weight over the rear (plates and calcium in the tires), chains on the rears, plumbed and installed hydraulics with an electric clutched hyd pump and put a plow on the front and we built a hydraulic dumping wagon good for about 1000lbs with a pivot hitch and quick-catch tailgate, plus some extra flood lights on the hood and rear red tail lights, and I'm sure there's stuff I'm missing

                        Spoolup89,

                        While I applaud the workmanship, I'm pretty sure that the intent of those little yard tractors is to miss the trees? And, I have to wonder what in the world you would need a hitch like that one for? I suppose one could jockey a boat trailer with it.......

                        Alas, there is no cure for the disease! As long as one has scrap around, things tend to get stuck on other things!

                        My next yard muncher is definitely going to be one of the Z-turn types. I get tired of trying to bend that Toro around obstacles! Yardman, how does a zero-turn like uneven terrain? My property is by no means level, and the dogs keep trying to mine the gophers, so there always seems to be a new hole to run over each time I mow!

                          Hank,

                          I have a Toro Z with a vacuum and thatching rack for our place upnorth, big hill and very uneven terrain. It's much more stable than my New Holland tractor is.. Plus, for cutting grass which is pretty much all the Z is made for I don't know of any other design mowers that are as quick as zero turns for cutting the lawn.

                            Better invest is Loctite for things that fall off from the vibes.
                            It could be bad with blades spinning.

                              Pete,

                              Thanks for the info. I may have to visit my Toro guy soon. I run a 266H Wheelhorse with a 38" deck, and I have to maneuver around a lot of oak trees. I mow 2.5 acres regularly, and this time of year all that needs to happen for the mix of grass and weed to pop up 3" is for the sun to come out for 4-hours or so! Until irrigation season (and the drier weather) get here near the end of May, I have to mow once a week! Seems like pulling those handles would be a lot less tiring than twisting that wheel!

                              I'll even pay extra for the beverage holder.....
