This is my 2nd Cub tractor. First one was 5000 series model with a Kawasaki engine that was so bad that my dealer took it back after 2 years with full refund. That should have been my heads up regarding CC tractors.
I love my 7284 when it works--which is seldom. The Perkins diesel engine is great and is the best thing about this tractor. I mow with a 60" mower, snow blow with a 54" blower and mow pastures with a brush hog.
The design of this machine is horrible, the electronics quit after 150 hours, muffler has been replaced three times as it falls off due to vibrations. The throttle cable loosens every 50 hours and is impossible to get to to tighten without taking everything apart. Would not buy another CC but not sure what else is out there that is any better.
