    Hello all! I have been comparing all the major manufacturers ZTRs... Have gotten some great advice on many types but have found out very little on the Cub Cadets. I can save a couple thousand dollars on a Lesco which I understand is EXACTLY the same as a Cub. Do any of you use the Cubs and Lescos? Do they cut and hold up as well as say exmark, hustler, toro, scag, etc?

    Hey bud, I have got a new demo CUB TANK 54. I have used it only this season, so it runs great. No prombles at all yet. Cuts find and it bags find. I also was looking at new zero turns and found the cub was built find and price was right. Also make sure you find a good dealer because you'll go back for parts and what not. Good luck and I know there are alot of choices. But I think just about any name brand might be fine because there is alot of company to get your buss. so they will build a good mower. Find yours and make some money payup payup

    i used a cub commercial ztr this year for about 1 week. i was impressed with how comfortable it was and the manuverability. but it didn't mow worth crap. it was a 44" and 15 kawi. my 15 kawi 48" gravely wb had 5 times better mowing quality. the cub left clumps and missed blades of grass constantly i sharpened the blades and still no difference. it had less than 40 hours on it. my advice is stay away and spend more money for a quaility mower.

    Hey Dig-it landscaping, I dont know where you got that 44" Cub with a 15h.p., but that must not have been a commercial mower because the smallest one cub makes is a 48" with 18 h.p. They do have what they call a residential mowers that are smaller and cheap made, but again they only make a 44" with 20 h.p. Im not busted on you man, Im just trying to get some facts out to other people. If im wrong please someone let me know!!!! :cool2:

    Beer is on me Dig-It Land :drinkup: :drinkup:

    You're correct Wriken, Cub Commercial doesn't make a 44" Z. :dizzy:

    He must have been looking at a ZForce or RZT which are homeowner models.

    My Tank has a great cut and stripes extremely well also. :waving:
