Cub Cadet GT2544

The Cub Cadet GT2544 lawnmower is an upgraded but similar version of the Cub Cadet GT2542 lawnmower. It gets it’s power from a 22 hp V twin cylinder engine that is designed and constructed by Kohler. This gasoline engine has an oil capacity of 1.9 liters of engine oil. The engine is key started by a 12 volt battery that is then recharged once the engine is running using a 15 amp alternator. The transmission box that directs power from the motor to the wheels is a hydrostatic one meaning that the GT 2544 is an automatic. Controlling the speed of the lawnmower is very simple, you just need to press down harder on the pedal to speed up and ease up on it to slow down. The top speed of this garden tractor lawn mower is 9.3 kph (5.8 mph).

The mower deck on the Cub Cadet GT2544 lawnmower has a cutting width of 44 inches and has been fabricated using 11 gauge steel. Power from the engine is transferred to it by a belt reinforced with Kevlar which gives it a very long life. The mower deck is highly adjustable making sure that the operator always gets the cutting height he wants. It can be adjusted from as high as 4 inches above the ground to as low as 1.5 inches above the ground in half inch steps. The raising and lowering of the deck is controlled by a manually operated, spring assisted lever.

People buying the Cub Cadet GT2544 should know that it’s a very heavy machine, tipping the scales at a whopping 363 kg (800 lbs) which means it’s not for your average small garden. It’s much better suited to gardens that are from 1 acre up to about 5 acres in size. Although if you do have to use it in a small, confined garden, you’ll be pleased to know that it’s minimum turning radius is fairly low at just 0.53 m (21 inches). If you are looking for other similar models in the series, have a look at the Cub Cadet GT2550 lawnmower.

  1. Bob says:

    Poor for money paid.

    Year of Manufacture: 2007
    Pros: Handles well. Engine great.
    Cons: Leaves uncut strips of grass. Dealer, Triebold, Whitewater, Wi says grass too thick – they think I am stupid. Horrible product – Cub wont return any phone calls. In addition to poor cut, headlights keep falling out, exhaust melts hood, belts hard to install.
    Attachments: Snow blower

    terrible

    Year of Manufacture: 2006
    Pros: none
    Cons: the customer service was terrible.
    i was not told that i did not weigh enough so it kept cutting off on me.
    the hood is plastic and fell apart, have taped together, the headlights never worked, it clogs up with grass constantly, now the steering is bad, wont steer, the pto belt kept breaking when i got it, it would come off the turns, it broke over 10 times, a piece of junk, for over 3500.00. would never have a cub cadet again

    Year of Manufacture: 3
    Pros: koler engine
    Cons: weak deck bad design, hanging type of deck . front falls off all the time especially while backing up. not what i expected for 3200.

  4. Don says:

    While I originally loved this tractor, the problems I’ve had should not have occurred on a machine of this cost. I feel I would have done just as well buying a cheaper tractor. Original cost was $3499

    Year of Manufacture: 2007
    Pros: Very powerful engine, good lawn cutting, good traction, smooth shaft drive, comfortable seat and arm rests
    Cons: Original deck belt went after 2 months of use, plastic fender broke the first year after rubbing mildly against a tree, plastic hood becomes extremely hot and melts the connection holding it on, the support pistons that hold the hood up are too strong for the design and force the overheated hood to break, tires constantly lose air, oil change is a chore even with the supplied hose extension because the oil outlet is positioned too close to the frame, after 3 years of grass cutting on a 1.5 acre lot the tractor is dead due to an electrical problem
    Attachments: none
    Modifications: none

    I love my CC 2544….this is a machine. You can’t beat the Cub Cadet line up for the money and options.
