    I asked a similar question before with not much response but now I'm thinking of buying this unit, it's a Cub Cadet 4818R (walkbehind) it's an older unit but in good shape... does anyone own one of these or had one of these???? My biggest concern is can I get aftermarket blades for this machine???

    And last time I asked about this machine someone asked if it was a "Tank" I don't think it is but it might be....

    I think that mower is produced by Lesco. You shouldn't have any problems finding after-market blades for it. I dont have a link to one of the after-market parts sites, but there are some pretty good ones out there. J-thomas comes to mind.

    I had a 48" with a 16 b/s motor, was a hydro. I did'nt use it much, because I have 3 ztr riders, but when I did, it did just fine. Blades are cheap, lesco/scag will fit, get the from j-thomas.com. I think thats the address.

    I bought a 36hydro MTD PRO new in 1998. Same make as your CUB. Still runs like a champ.
