Cub Cadet has five models in their new Series 1000 lawn tractors, all
powered by Kohler engines. Cub Cadet models -- as several other lawn
equipment brands -- are manufactured by MTD Products.
Cadet LT 1045 has a 20-hp Kohler single-cylinder engine, with an
aluminum block and cast-iron sleeve for longer life. It has a
full-pressure lubrication system with spin-on oil filter for easier
maintenance. This engine is not as powerful or as long lasting as the
Kohler V-Twin OHV, which is available in other models in the line, but
the LT 1045's engine is still solid enough to provide years of mowing.
The hydrostatic (automatic) transmission is a good match with the
engine and provides sufficient grip to cut grass on moderate inclines.
Power is transferred from the engine to the transmission by a heavy-duty
Kevlar belt rather than a more expensive shaft drive. A Kevlar belt
also drives the three cutting blades.
The mowing deck cuts a
swath of grass 46 inches wide at one pass, and is removable for service
and cleaning. Four anti-scalping wheels help keep the deck from scalping
grass on uneven ground. The cutting height is manually adjusted from
1-1/2 to 4 inches. The turning radius is 18 inches, which standard for
lawn tractors. This model is intended for use on 1- to 2-acre lawns
without many turns or small obstacles.
remove the starter...use jumper cables to "run the starter manually...red to big lug, black to body (anywhere is fine) should torque hard at initial run and continue to run smooth...if it buzzes or vibrates, it's bad...replace...
There are a few possibillites: a bearing is starting to go on the quill assembly or idler pulley; the PTO on the engine is heating up and quitting to work until it cools off; or you may have a switch going bad. I would look at this first. HTH Good Day
I have the same mower. The wires do need to be connected. It is a safety feature on the cubs. The engine will not start if the electric PTO is engaged. I just went into the garage, pulled the pto lever out to engage, pushed down brake, tried to start and it would not start. I suggest reattatching the wires and trying it. Hope this helps.
