    2008 Cub Cadet Yanmar SC2400 and one very tired JD 318.

    Default Re: New Yanmar-Cub CUTs

    I've got one of the 24 hp units and have put about 10 hours on it so far. I really (REALLY) like the layout of the machine and the overall quality. I considered getting the 32 hp machine, but with my knees I would have been really hurting climbing up and down all the time. The SC2400 is very easy to get on and off.

    The loader design seems to be well thought out and so far has moved some nicely sized boulders around the property. I've filled the rear wheels with Rim Guard and have a 300# cement ballast for the 3 point. It seems very steady on the rolling ground around here.

    Not terribly impressed with the traction of the R4s in the mud though, and will be picking up a set of chains for the rear wheels this week.

    What would I change? Coming from a JD 318, everything is taking some getting used to. So far I find that I very much miss having split brakes. My JD 318 had them, and there have been a number of times that I've already needed them, most noticeably when back-dragging with the loader. Even a slight lift on the front end does away with steering ability, and being able to lock one of the rears would be nice. Apparently it's common on the SCUTs to not have the split brakes, but it would be nice. The other thing that's apparent is the lack of a toolbox. They should have found a place to store all the necessary pins, clips, etc. My solution so far is to use a soft-sided toolbag shoved under the seat.

    I've added a rear-facing work light and a beacon for the top of the ROPS so the cars don't smack into me when I work along the road frontage.

    I'll post some pictures as soon as I figure out how.

    Yanmar Ex3200

    Default Re: New Yanmar-Cub CUTs

    I've had a SC2400 for about a month now and I'm very pleased with the machine. It has enough hp to do what I need done, is very manueverable in tight spaces, and the ergonomics for the driver's area was well thought out, especially for a guy my size (I'm 6'3", 245lbs). The only thing I'm having problems with is the top link of the 3ph. As it sits now, I must have the top link totally wound in to hook up to the blade but in doing so, that allows no more than 4 inches of ground clearance for the bottom of the blade. I've brought this to the attention of the dealer were I purchased the machine and he contacted Cub Cadet about it. In the research I've done, on another forum and on other brand machines, it appears to me that the top link should be mounted lower on the rear of the tractor which would allow it to be opened up when it's hooked up to a 3pt implement. If anyone has any ideas, Please don't hesitate to pass them on. All ideas and/or thoughts are appreciated.

    See if you can find a shorter top link, maybe TSC, local Co-op, etc., or search on the internet. Maybe your dealer can provide one.

    I've noticed the same thing on my SC2400, not much ground clearance under some implements when they are raised. I decided against a shorter top link though after using the box blade. When doing the final passes with the box blade I had the top link all the way out. A shorter top link wouldn't have worked for this.

    I think that the problem has nothing to do with the top link. I think that the problem is that the machine is a SUB compact and sits low to the ground. I have noticed a huge difference when using implements designed specifically for sub compacts machines, like the XB line from King Kutter. If your blade is meant for a CUT and not a SCUT, there's not really much that will help.

    Of course, even with the XB implements there are still limitations. Take the middle buster for example. In order to have any usable depth to the cut, there is a limit to the height it will raise up. We have a lot of hills, and the only way to transport the middle buster without scraping the ground is to either take off the blade in for transit or just carry the whole works in the FEL until I get to the garden.

    I've got an XB 5' blade, and it sits plenty high for transport in the center position. If I angle it all the way though, the bottom corner catches on even a slight incline.

    All that being said, I love how low the machine sits for two main reasons. 1) My knees would scream constantly climbing into anything larger, and 2) The lower height means more stability on all of our hills and slopes.
