Was wondering if anyone out there has one of these and what is your opinion? 22HP Kawasaki. Thinking about buying one.

Thanks, Mike

I have a 2010 LTX 1045 and it's been absolutely trouble free.

I do maintain it properly, and I don't use it for things that it's not meant to do.

IF I had to replace it today, I would get the LTX 1042 KW instead of the 1046 KW. That's because the 1042 has a MANUAL engaged PTO instead of the electric one on the 1046. Replacing a failed electric PTO clutch costs more $$ than I'm willing to put up with.

When MTD decided that they wanted to compete with Deere in the low end lawn tractor market, they chose the CC 1000 series as their 'weapon', and they did a good job of doing so.

In that market the CCs are a better mower and a better value than the low end Deere.

Just be sure to go with one of the KW models which are dealer only.

We've got a 1045 with the kohler. It is a throw away mower, of course. It has been very good for us with only routine maintenance. It cuts like a million bucks. My only complaint is that the blades have so much lift that you can easily cause a dust storm here. Like any other mower if that style, the traction sucks pond water. It is easy to get stuck around the farm.

We use ours about 6 hours a week. I would buy another. It will get relegated to sprayer duty before too long. It isn't worn out in any way, but that engine grenades with 500 hours or so. Or so I hear.

You wanting to get it from a dealer or box store? The reason I ask is that some CC products use heavier spindles on the Dealer units than the box store units. The Box store unit is pretty much identical to a Troybilt except for the paint color.

The Kawasaki engine is about the best there is. Keep fresh clean ethanol free fuel in it and you should have no problems.

The mower itself will probably have belt and pulley issues.

I have a Cub Cadet LT 1050.
Mine has a 22hp Kohler .
Bought new in 2008 , so far it has been a good dependable machine.
I do change the oil and all filters every year grease the entire machine EVERY cutting because I cut about 2 to 3 hours a week with it.
I did replace the tractor drive belt and adjust the valves in 2011.
