My first post is a good one

15 plus years in the industry and I have my first " can't seem to give it away mower" CUB TANK M60. After 490 hours im just tired of this thing beating the crap out of me day in and out. I just bought a new Scag Cheetah and my back is thankful for the ride Are the Cubs that bad you cannot sell them anymore?????

Any help or info would be great.

Thanks.

Yes they are, but at least if you ever sell or trade the Cheetah you will have something with a resell value....

That is just sad, it shows Cub cadet is no longer a big time player in the market. I should have known better and will not make that mistake ever again.

I bought my Cheetah with cash and got a great deal on it, iv had the cub listed for 3000 and not one phone call or email on it.

Ill say this, my cheetah has the 36hp briggs and I could not be more pleased with it. The 31hp Kawi felt under powered for the mower during my demo, has any one else felt that way about there's???

cheetah engine

I tried the 27 and 31 kawi. I opted for the 31. The 31 has plenty of power for my needs. The 27 seemed to labor going up small grades. Didnt try the vanguard, understand they have a following, just like the kawis. I just happend to prefer the kawi. Cant beat the ride though, can you. Saves the back, and other parts
