Question about Garden

2 Answers

I have a cub cadet Big Country. The person I got it from supposedly just had it serviced. It lost power and began to smoke after driving it for a bout 10 minuets. The oil seemed to be over filled so I drained a filter full and it seemed to do fine the next time I used it. However, the use was alot of starting and stopping. The next day I drove it down a dirt road and after about 2 miles, the oil light came on and it began to sputter, backfire, and die. After towing it home and letting it set, it crank. What could be the problem?

Check the oil level again. You may have a carburetor problem allowing fuel to get into the oil.

What does the blinking h on the cub cadet hour display mean?

What it is and what it means is absolutely nothing. What it was suppose to mean is time for service when flashing but it has never worked and there is no way to reset. So that being said, if you are having it serviced every so often (25 to 50 hours) depending on the type usage just don't worry. It truly means nothing. Hope this helps you.

I have a cub cadet LT1042 and it is 3 years old...we have replaced the pto 2 times and replaced the belt 7 times what is the deal

You have to have something rubbing under there that isn't supposed to be, crawl under the tractor and watch the belt go around by hand, if you can turn it. Maybe see what is frozen up, in the wrong place, Gotta be a belt guide is rubbing or a pulley is not spinning. The PTO should last 20 years, all i can think is they got it too tight to start, .010" min, that is tight, and you must be in Florida picking up a lot of sand? If it was under any kind of warranty, I would raise a big stink about it. Those PTO's are not cheap. And the belt has got to be $20. I wouldn't go to a dealer for the belt, unless it is really special, just match it up at the auto parts store, for half the price of dealer. Hope this helps.
