New transmission on cub cadet LTX1050

My Cub Cadet LTX 1050 is having difficulty shifting from forward, to neutral to reverse. It takes several attempts to get it into gear. Of course the warranty expired in April and the problem began in May. I took it to a local small engine repair guy who claims I need a new transmission. As a single mom of 4 kids with no knowledge of engine mechanics, I am worried that he may just be trying to make money off of me. Could this really be the source of my problem? It is very expensive to fix but I cant afford a new tractor and my lawn is 1.5 acres with only 4 trees. Any advice or input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Jen

Cub Cadet LTX1050 Has difficulty shifting between gears - could it really need a new transmission?

This can be a trans problem, but it can also be because you are not pushing the clutch/brake in far enough to ease shifting. bad clutch adjustment can also cause this as well.

Does the transmission otherwise work properly. (move freely in all the gears when it's in the gears without any grinding or bogging or burning smells? Does it stop properly when you push the clutch and engage properly when you release it. If so the transmission itself is probably okay but the shift mechanism where it shifts going into the transmission may need work. Most of these tractors all use the exact same transmissions (even different manufacturers often are using the exact same motors and transmissions as other brands. So Craftsman, MTD, Cub Cadet, even John Deere may all have a briggs and stratton engine and the exact same 5 speed manual transmission or hydrostatic transmission under them but then just have different looks and features up top. Sometimes the shift points on the common manual transmission get a little rusty inside the transmission. It's basically a small spring loaded ball that pushes from one rounded hole to the next and each hole is a spot where it holds the trans in whatever gear you set it at. This can get rusty and sticky and inhibit shifting. If you are not a big do-it-yourself person, then this is probably not an easy fix as it requires pulling the transmission and opening up part of it to lubricate/clean where the shift lever moves inside the trans or replace that particular mechanism.

However, one thing that you can do that may help SOME but only as a temporary thing is to shift it back and forth rapidly between forward and reverse while stopped (the motor doesn't need to be running even). This is kind of like swinging a rusty door back and forth to break down the rust. it's not a true fix per-say, but it can help loosen up those shift points enough to get you through a season or so if you just need to keep it going for a while till you can find a cheaper more honest repair person. . On the other hand, if it's really bad, it could break that ball loose and just make the tractor inoperable until you get that fixed. The parts for that are much cheaper than the actual transmission though.

This situation is just a clogged fuel line IN the tank. It happens. Yeah, stuff that gets In builds up in the line an elbow and plugs it up. Just pull the connection out of the tank and clean it out. I have even found plastic bits clogging the line on mine. I have a LT 1050 also. And a Cub ZT I just love.
