The Cub Cadet 1000 Series accounts for 11 different lawn tractors. The tractors are some of the best performing mowers in the entire industry. The 1000 Series can easily be used for lawns up to three acres in size and are able to maneuver over and around any obstacles that may be present. They also feature a high-pressure deck-washing system and a wider discharge chute to prevent clumping. With their professional quality engines, 12 inch turning radius, and superior cutting quality, these lawn tractors can’t be beat. Finally, all Cub Cadet 1000 Series lawn tractors come with a 3-year/ 120-hour warranty and a 5-year/500-hour limited warranty.
All of the Cub Cadet 1000 Series lawn tractors feature a fully pressurized oil pump with a spin-on oil filter for easy maintenance. In addition, all models include cruise control, QuickAttach deck, and patented high pressure deck washing system for removing debris that may collect beneath the deck. All models except for the largest have a tight 12 inch turning radius. All models also come with an oil change reminder, parking brake, digital hour meter, battery voltage monitor, and PTO start sequence LEDS. Finally, all models in the Cub Cadet 1000 Series possess several safety features including operator presence, neutral start, a brake pedal lock, reverse safety switch, and reverse mowing capabilities.
The most basic of the 1000 Series is the LTX 1040. It features a 19 HP Kohler single cylinder engine, an automatic CVT transmission with cruise control, a 42 inch QuickAttach™ deck, and a Cub Comfort mid-back seat. The next model in the lineup is the LTX 1042, which instead has a 20 HP Kohler single cylinder engine. In addition, the LTX 1042 includes hydrostatic transmission and a Cub Comfort high-back seat. It retains the 42 inch deck, however.
The next model in terms of price and features is the LTX 1045. The LTX 1045 retains all of the same specifications as the LTX 1042, except for the size of the deck, which is 46 inches instead of 42. After the LTX 1045 is the LTX 1046. This model comes in three different variations, all of which are the same as the LTX 1045 with the exception of their engines and their attachment control. The first variation is the LTX 1046 M, which has a 22 HP Kohler V-Twin OHV engine. The second variation is the LTX 1046, which features a 20 HP Kawasaki V-Twin OHV engine and adds electronic fingertip engagement in place of a manual level for control of the attachments and deck. Finally, the third variation is the LTX 1046 KW keeps the electronic fingertip engagement and includes a 23 HP Kohler V-Twin OHV engine.
After the LTX 1046 model come the LTX 1050 KH, LTX 1050 KW and the SLTX 1050. These models are the same as the LTX 1046 KW except for their specific engines, deck size, and a slightly larger rear tire. The LTX 1050 features a 22 HP Kawasaki V-Twin OHV engine and a 50 inch deck with a triple blade. The LTX 1050 KW keeps the larger deck and features 24 HP Kohler V-Twin OHV engine. The SLTX 1050 is the same as the other two 1050 models except for its 25 HP Kohler V-Twin OHV engine.
The final model in the Cub Cadet 1000 Series is the 1054, which comes as the SLTX 1054 or the GTX 1054. Both of these models have 54 inch decks. In addition, the SLTX 1054 has a 26 HP Kohler V-Twin OHV engine, and the GTX 1054 has a 27 HP Kohler V-Twin OHV engine. It should also be noted that the GTX 1054 is the only lawn tractor in the Cub Cadet 1000 series with a turning radius of 18 inches instead of 12.
