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.
