    Lost Power steering on 2016 SZ60 KW

    So I found the Manufacturer on the pump/module and I was pretty sure the module was bad. I was happy to hear I could buy the module for $250 with a 30 day return window. Picked it up yesterday, 15 minutes to reinstall and I was mowing with restored power steering. $250 is pricey but I was just...

    Lost Power steering on 2016 SZ60 KW

    Thanks Richard, I noticed this company sells the control module separately and have also discovered my module has an LED that can be used for diagnostics. I'm still trying to get inf from the MFG. My module has power in, no power out and when you power the pump directly, it works...

    Lost Power steering on 2016 SZ60 KW

    I was doing my first spring mowing a week ago and the first issue was a dead battery. It had been on a tender all winter and showed green, but didn't even turn over. I replaced the battery and off I went mowing. I realized the power steering wasn't working, still usable but tight turns will wear...

    Mowing  Transmission problem

    OK, This is yet another disappointmet in a 5252 I bought in 2006, I'm guessing this is the death knoll for this tractor. I'm trying to get some mowing done and I hear a transmision whine and then no drive. I'm guessing it's the dreaded 5000 series tranny fail. I can see the driveshaft spinning...

    Mowing  5252 Deck

    I took my deck off this weekend to clean and sharpen blades. I noticed the original belt tying the three spindles together was a little worn , so I thought i'd get a backuo at a local belt shop. It looks like you need to loosen the gearbox to get the belt clear for removal. I discovered the nut...

    Case 235/245/255

    Hi, I just picked up a 1990 Case 245 in great shape. I have two questions. First, has anyone used the 72F Case blade. This came with the blade and frame but appears to be missing parts, no hydraulic cylinder or any other mechaism to lift. I searched without success for a diagram or picture...

    5252 electrical problem

    My Cub 5252 recently had a failure of the hourmeter, tach and fuel gauge. The tach and hourmeter are blank, like no power. I was hoping to find a 3A fuse blown but no such luck, I checked, unplugged and plugged the harness to the dash, pushed wires around, still no go. I thought someone might...

    Buying Advice  Cub M48S Tank

    I looked at a 2004 M48S today with 120 hours. Are there any known issues with this model. It had the Kohler Command 18HP, ran good, sounded good, asking price was $3300. It also had the stamped deck, which looked solid/well made. Thanks for any insight anyone might have. Curt

    eBay/Craigslist  54" blower on Ebay for 7000 series

    I saw this browsing Ebay today, if it would fit my 5252, I'd buy it. $1500 for a new blower, hitch and hydraulic kit and free shipping. Maybe someone else here could take advantage? I'm still using my 1872 and 451 blower but neither of us are gettin any younger. Curt NEW CUB CADET SNOW...

    1872 No spark

    My 1872 wouldn't start yesterday, no spark. I removed the ground lead from the ignition module, still no spark. Is there anything else I should look at before I pull the engine and replace the ignition module? Thanks, Curt

    Cub Deck Wheel

    Hi Guys, I was mowing tonight between rains and my deck wheel turned sideways when it caught on the edge of the drive and knocked this tire off the wheel. Any tips to get this tire back on? It's hard to see in the picture, but there is a ridge around the inside of the tire thats really going...

    1872 Carb problem

    This weekend, I attempted to start the 1872, (Kohler 18HP Magnum) it sounded odd and only turned over slightly. It actually sounded like something was locked mechanicaly. Short story, the cylinders were full of gas and the oil was contaminated. My assuption was the float stuck open and allowed...

    Another hitch idea!

    Here's what I think is the perfect hitch. It's on my 1872. The upper ball works well moving my 16 foot landscape trailer. The lower works well on the smaller trailers and the drawbar work on those devices that don't have a coupler, like my broadcast spreader that's going to get a workout today...

    Uh Oh!

    I was throwing some snow last week, it was about a foot deep and close to zero degrees and I heard a loud bang from the tractor. The tractor is an old 1872 SGT. I was able to back up to see some odd looking parts in my path. Seems my hydro cooling fan exploded... I figure I'm good on that till...

    Hot spark?

    It seems like whenever we have really cold weather, below zero, I have a hard time getting the Cub to start. This particular model is an 1872 with the 18HP Magnum. I keep a trickle charger on it and it turns over fine but there is no evidence of spark, then I end up flooding it. So my question...

    Price Check  Tire pricing

    Hello, My 20 year old tires on the front of my 1872 are dryrotting and need replaced. Cub wants $147.14 per tire, plus shipping and maybe tax, I didn't get that far. They are 18 x 8.5 x 8. I can buy Carlisles on Amazon for $61 delivered, each, so thats $121 vs $298 + shipping and tax. I...

    Cub compacts

    Let me start out by saying I'm a huge fan of Cub products, but have some concerns about their marketing of the CUT products. Other folks who have experienced the problems I'm about to mention can either confirm or deny the accuracy. My problem is that Cub doesn't seem to be able to decide on a...

    2150 won't crank

    My brother in law called yesterday and said after a couple hours of mowing, he took a break, when he returned to mowing the tractor would click, but not turn over. The battery and started were removed and tested and some relay was replaced. No change. He tried connecting the + side of the...

    Cub snowthrowers 450 and 451

    Good evening, Does anyone have experience with the 450 and 451 blower that could tell me why they wouldn't be interchangeable on a SGT (1872). I have a 450 I've used for five years or so and I bought a 451 at an auction in the spring. I mounted the 451 today on the 1872 and all appears normal...

    Oil & Fuel  5252 starved for fuel?

    I'm having problems with my 5252, it appears to be fuel starved. It's a 25Hp Kohler Command. I'll be mowing and it will start sputtering and may even stall, I can usually keep it running by choking but not with enough power to mow. I changed the fuel filter, what a poor location for that...

    PTO kills engine

    I did some work on my mothers 1641 last weekend and got her running again. My best guess is the float stuck or she left the key on (assuming this tractor has a solenid shutoff) and gas got in the oil sump. I changed the oil cleaned the plugs, took the carb apart and cleaned it and it started...

    1872 ignition and hydro problems

    I have a recently purchased 1872 that has two problems that I've spent a fair amount of time on, with limited success. I'm intermittently losing spark. My neighbor loaned me a in-line spark indicator and the tractor will start 90 percent of the time, on that tenth attemp, no spark. I'm leaning...

    Cub hydro system

    Is there a website with good service info on the Cub's hydro system. My latest 1872 project (auction) is leaking a bit, I believe from the hydro relief valve. I'm hoping to power wash and isolate the source, but then what. I noticed in the parts diagram there four different relief valves or...

    5252 60" Deck gearbox slipping?

    I was mowing tonight and took a break after an hour or so, had a beverage, got back on the tractor and started it up. When I engaged the PTO it didn't sound right and I noticed the blades were turning at maybe 1/4 speed. Engaging and disengaging didn't create that jolt I'm used to from the load...

    5000 series snowblower

    1872 PTO problem?

    We had a bit of snow overnight in NE Ohio, I got out the trusty 1872 with the 45" blower it was right on the edge of being too wet to blow, sorta throwin slush out the discharge. Near the end of my cleanup the PTO wouldn't engage, drove back to the shop, turned off the tractor, looked for any...

    Price Check  Price gouge?

    I picked up a number of supplies today for my new 5252. I was surprised they didn't stock an air cleaner or pre filter but more surprised at the cost of the suggested hydraulic fluid. $31.64 per gallon for part # 737-3121, just not acceptable. I bought 1 gallon because the 25 hour service...

    Mowing  Strange mowing issue

    I've seen a strange scenario from he 60" deck on my 5252. I'm mowing dry grass but for some reason, the left rear wheel on the deck loads up with grass and then flips off a 12" x 2" patch every 100 feet or so. nothing accumulates on the other three wheels, weird. I'm thinking of swapping wheels...

    Septic system

    Great service!

    I bought a 20" PTO shaft to connect a Yanmar tiller to a Ford 1220 Tractor from Agri-Supply in June or July, cut it to length and used it a couple of times this summer. I had a 10 X 40 area on my property with a couple large mounds of dirt and a trench. Don't know when it was dug up that way...

    Backhoe hydraulic problem

    I've noticed increasing jerkiness on the boom on my 756C backhoe. Anything simple I can look at. It's well lubricated, there doesn't appear to be too much play in the joints. All the other motions work fine. If I feather it really lightly, I can get it move smoothly, but that's way too slow...

    Yanmar tiller

I cut down a new one this weekend and also made a shorter toplink out of an old piece of steel. It tilled really well but I...

    A little off topic maybe but.... I bought a Generac gas powered generator, Model 7000 EXL in August 2003 from Home Depot, it failed in the first use (power outage) after about 1 hour. It just stopped producing power. It was exchanged for a new one that I readied for use and it has sat since...

    SGT 1872 frame problems?

    I recently had two of the bolts that hold the frame to the rear end of the tractor snap off. I first thought they had just come loose and fallen out, I wasnt that lucky.

    Tiller parts

    Hello, Due to a serious cockpit error, I'm in need of the cross kit for the PTO shaft on a Yanmar 1301 tiller. It measures 1.045 across the bearing cup and 2 3/4 overall length.

    Tiller PTO shaft

    I recently purchased a Yanmar 1303 tiller to use with my 1220. Everything is about what I expected with a little hitch. The PTO shaft is only engaging about two of the six inches on the splined shaft and if I add a 4" PTO extension the shaft is at too extreme an angle when raised to rotate. It...

    Tires  Calcium filled tires?

    Based on the old theory that there are no stupid questions, when I check the rear tires on my 1220, they read somewhere in range of 15 LBS. They don't look low and they are filled with some type of fluid. The tire calls for 30 LBS I believe. I tried reading them with the stem on top thinking...
