No Longer made by Cub Cadet/MTD Posted by Brad Vanek on 01/10/2013

Has actually been a very dependable tractor, but the 2008 merge with Yanmar has left the compact tractor market of Cub Cadet as non-existent. Yanmar has their own tractor line (with their famous diesel engine) but it still has very limited sales in US.

The Cub Cadet 7260 tractor was an MTD parent company with a Mitsubishi 3 cyl. diesel. No dealerships in my area and was bought new from a fledgling enterprise In Woodland, WA. that is no longer in business. Not a good scenario and thank goodness the tractor has been a tough and dependable performer.

ITEM INFORMATION
Model year: 1998 Date Purchased: 05/14/1999 Number of Hours: 1148
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Very durable and also trouble free Mitsubishi engine. Simple but excellent design and good floor space enables you to get off from either side. Cons: Issues with electical glow plugs went out (possibly due to relay) the glow plugs were off the chart expensive and one of a kind. also the loader is very strong (Cub Cadet loader) but there is a bolt mounting issue whereas the front bracket extends forward along the frame and the mounting bolts actually end up being the motor mounts as well. I have since removed the longer bolts that go through the loader and into the frame/motor as they are not really necessary and the main portion is attached to the loader mounting frame on the tractor. Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 Acres Location: United States Oregon I also considered buying: Kubota L3000
