Check all the blade spindles for seized bearings. also check the pulley alignment, those issues can cause premature belt failure. Also proper tension can give you consistent long term use.

Why would my belt on my cub cadet 1046 mower keep popping off?


Did you put all the belt keepers back on? I find a lot of DIYers usually leave one off thinking it is not important.

Cub Cadet ZTR will not start


Is the blade engagement off? If that is ok, does the solenoid even click when you put the key to start position? If the solenoid doesn't even click check the battery connections and make sure they are good and clean. If the connections are good, are you sure the new battery is fully charged. If the battery sat around for a long time in the store it could need charged. If all that is good and then you don't get the starter solenoid to click when you put the key in start position, then it is either the seat switch, parking brake switch, handle switches, or mower engage switch keeping it from starting. If all that is ok maybe you have a bad starter solenoid. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

Problem with left side hydrostatic transmission


This is a well documented problem with cub cadet ZT transmissions. They tend to go bad after 200 hours of use. Sometimes having the dealer change the transmission oil will help (they need to remove the transmissions to do this!). Most times, the transmission is gone & must be replaced ($800-$900).

Sound to me like a design defect. My ZT-50 lasted only 4 years. Needless to say, the replacement was not a cub cadet.
