    they are terrible, at least the one i had was. problem after problem after problem. when i ran right it was great, but i don't think the pos made it through a whole week running well, if at all. i was so frustrated, i threw it in a creek by my house and felt good about it. let the catfish use it, cause i darn sure won't. buy a redmax, they're bullet-proof.

    oh yeah, did i mention that they're a total p.o.s.?

    My best friend bought one and HATES it, he's had so many problems with it that the dealer is trying to get him his money back!

    I believe the model you are talking about is a homeowner class. I have 5 st26 models and they have been good to me.

    incidentally, the one i had, don't remember model #, had "cub cadet commercial" on the shroud.
    maybe i can go ask the fish what the model # is :)

    you must have gotten the only 2 good ones made. you should play the lottery, you'll probably win:usflag:

    THANK YOU! we ran cub cadets about three years ago. horrible, horrible, crapy p.o.s's. Went through 4 of them before we decided to switch to redmax. All 4 of them broke within 3-5 months.

    Now we have a redmax bcz2600s. AMAZING. it really is bulletproof. Strong engine, great, sturdy build, and probably more power than you will need.

    Been using a cub cadet for almost a year now and zero problems!! If available buy the 4 stroke engine. I don't know about you but I hate mixing gas! With the 4 stroke you use the same gas as you use in your mower! :clapping:

    I've had two (both commercial).

    1st one last 3 weeks.

    2nd one lasted less than a day.

    At least I got a full refund on both.

    you did better than me. i couldn't get the time of day out of my dealer (ex-dealer now). it got to the point where i would fix it myself even though it still had warranty on it. if i listen closely, i can still hear the cub cadet people laughing at me like a ghost from the past for ever buying it ("haaaaaahaaaaaahaaaaa, aaaantoherrrrr suuuuuuuuucker" said with a phantasmic accent:cry: :cry: )
