There is probably more than a single fault that probably has a root cause of bad or ineffective maintenance and/or misuse.

The steering system should have a close and thorough inspection and repaired, overhauled and adjusted as required by a suitably experienced person. The steering of any vehicle is an important safety feature even on low speed vehicles.

Steering skips


Three things need to be checked. The steering shaft for play, the pinion gear on the end of the steering shaft and your stationary gear at the bottom. Raise the hood, turn the wheel back and forth so you can see where the play is coming from.

Steering gear slips


You have the steering shaft the pinion gear on the end of the shaft and the stationary gear at the bottom on the frame. Either the gears are worn out or the steering shaft has too much play in it causing the gears to slip.

Cub cadet lawn mower steering wheel will not turn all the way to the right. It turns all the way to the left, but not the right. Checked the teeth on the fan gear, all are okay. what next?


Even though the teeth on the fan gear are ok, they may have skipped past each other a few teeth. My tractor has a bushing that the end of the steering rod passed through before attaching to the fan gear. The bearing was worn, allowing the steering rod to move, and the fan gear would then to lose it's grip from time to time, eventually making my tractor perform much like yours. See if you can replace that bushing, your issue should be solved.

Craftsman Lawn tractor - When turning to the left the Left front wheel turns much farther then the right front wheel does on a hard right turn. Almost perpendicular to the tractor. Busings are brand new....


I've noticed this on other Craftsman and MTD mowers. The ones with the one main steering rod from the steering wheel to the left wheel and a connecting rod from the left wheel to the right wheel. I think that since we are advised to mow in a counter-clockwise direction, they design the mowers to turn tighter towards the left. It's in the design just like you suspected.

Cub cadet LTX 1045 steering problem......... Only 10 hours on a new tractor. Steering became gradually harder to turn wheels. Now when steering wheel is turned left, both wheels point in toward the center.


Probably a bent "drag link". See your owner's manual about checking for damage adjusting the steering. For the LTX 1045, it is "Maintenance Section 6", Page 22. If it is bent, repair or replace as mowerman1857 indicated.

You should also lubricate at the two grease fittings (per side) shown on Page 20 -Lubrication - "with a #2 weight Multi-purpose grease". It may have been skipped at the factory or may have been stored at high temperature before you got it, and dried out. (Text in quotes are from the manual)

Won't turn right


Had this on my riding mower. The steering rod going to the wheels from the steering assembly was bent. Take it off and straighten it and re-install.

Look under the front between the wheels at the tie rod that connects the two wheels. It is probably bent up and should be straight. If it's bent, remove it a straighten it.
