They commonly forget to grease fittings, if they bother to install them, before shipping. Many misaligned decks, pulleys, belts, etc.
Parts availability was terrible as a rule of thumb. Common parts could take weeks, or months to get.
The only machines I saw in their lineup that had any commercial duty design were the commercial walkbehinds and the Tank series. They were solid machines, but still poorly assembled.
We told Cub to get their junk out of our shop at the end of the first year.
this is what i like about this site thanks for the info maybe someone will listen

I've seen a few Cub Commi's in my area and they do leave a nice stripe and they look well built however that IS not enough for me to even start to dissect their line up and consider it for use. Why, simple there is too many other mowers out their are are just better for all the right reasons. I feel like their not in the game to be the best like Toro, Scag, Ferris, Walker, etc.... I dunno why i feel that way, more than likely its because i don't see allot of them and i know thats no reason to X them off the list .but if they were all that i would see more of them

I'm at the point now that if a mower doesn't have full suspension i wont even consider it. Thats how happy i am with Ferris. Cut, comfort, build quality, its that good.

Craig, i know your problems with Bad Boy. I can't believe you painted it yellow. Is that true or did you photo shop that chit?

I'm thinkin' PS. You noticed the color, now take a close look at the fruit in the decal on it. I'm pretty sure that BB doesn't put that decal on their machines

Oh.. I wasn't trying to change anyone's mind, just wondering the reason why the slamming...
The Tank's are of a cobby design just like DC but people still like them.
