SOURCE: cub cadet LT1018 won't start or crank

It might be a saftey problem. But before you start changing swithches or whatever try this. If you have to lift a lever to engage the PTO for the blades try wiggling it up and down a little bit while sitting on the tractor and the brake pedal depressed and turning the key to start it.
Sometimes there is a little wearing and it won't be in the right spot on its own.

Good luck and let me know if this helped.

SOURCE: Cub Cadet lt-1050 can't steer

If you purchased this unit from a home center etc. they never set them up or grease them ... if you can not steer this unit it was probly never greased at set up . you may need to remove the front spindles from the axle and remove the rust. before you reassemble be sure the grease fitting is not pluggedd up with rust as well , reinstall replace retainingclip( you will need to get a new ones) and grease your machine, also the mower spindles have grease fittings as well that need to be greased but the spindles need to be taken apart and the inner bearings seal removed to allow grease to enter the bearings

Steering wheel is hard to turn on cub cadet riding lawn mower seems locked up

Start buy checking from steering wheel down the shaft , to gear that does turning, to shaft underneath mower that goes to steering tierods , to tires. Oil and grease will do wonders on any parts that look rusty, or may be tight. Definately check air preasure in your tires. You should be fine.

I have a 2 year old Cub Cadet and I find it very hard to steer the wheels during mowing.

First grease the the axles and all steering components associated with steering, there should be grease fittings where you can pump grease into, then make sure your tires are all filled to proper psi. Good Luck...
