Cub Cadet GT1554

The Cub Cadet GT1554 garden tractor lawn mower is part of the 1500 Series of lawn tractors. The engine powering the GT 1554 is a Kohler Courage engine. This is a twin cylinder model with overhead valves and a max power output of 27 hp. Each of the cylinders has cast iron sleeves for longevity. The engine uses a fully pressurized lubrication system to keep everything working smoothly. The lawn mower is key started by a 12 volt battery which supplies 235 cold cranking amps. This battery is recharged via a 15 amp alternator. The engine on the GT 1554 transfers power to the wheels through a belt drive system that uses a heavy duty Kevlar belt. The deck is engaged electronically.

The mower deck on the Cub Cadet GT1554 tractor mower has 6 different operating heights from a low 1.5 inches above the ground to a high of 4 inches above the ground. The height is adjusted in increments of 0.5 inches. The deck that houses the 3 mowing blades is made from 11 gauge steel. For dealing with the grass clippings on the GT 1554, the operator has 3 different choices. The cleanest and neatest option is to use the optional 3 bag bagger attachment to collect the clippings. Unfortunately though, this is very time consuming, so a lot of people tend to either just discharge the clippings out the side of the deck or use an optional mulching plug instead.

The top speed of the Cub Cadet GT1554 is 8.4 kph (5.2 mph) going forward and in reverse it can reach 3.7 kph (2.3 mph). The rear wheels which drive the GT1554 each measure 23×10.5 (23 inch diameter, 10.5 inch width). The front wheels each measure 16×7.5 (16 inch diameter, 7.5 inch width). You can also use this garden tractor lawn mower during the winter thanks to the fact that you can attach a 42″ snow thrower to it as well as a 46″ dozer blade.

    Negative all the way.
    This machine appears to have been engineered by accountants and is an absolute piece of junk.

    Year of Manufacture: 2007
    Pros: None
    Cons: Kohler engine compression release doesn’t work very well causing the engine to crank slowly (hard on the starter & battery)
    Battery had to be replaced every other year
    Drive belt had to be replaced every 50-60 hours
    Deck spindles lasted well as did deck drive belt
    Plastic bushings on the front wheels is a non funny joke
    Frame cracked at the dashboard at 350 hours
    Not sure what I’ll buy next, but I’m certain it won’t be a Cub Cadet
    Attachments: 54 inch mowing deck
    Modifications: None

    Year of Manufacture: 2005
    Pros: non
    Cons: it has been a piece of junk since the day we purchased it.it has been in the shopmore than not, we purchased it new from Tractor supply, with the extended warranty, We are living on social security, and this purchased was something we had to save for, It was a huge error in judgement, You have never been able to fix this tractor and since we are not under warranty anymore we have spent hundreds of dollars trying to keep it running to no avail, we got it out of the shop last week mowed once and it quit again a new problem, most everything has been replaced the only thing that has always worked is the motor.
    Modifications: none
