Cub Cadet LT1050

The Cub Cadet LT1050 garden tractor lawn mower is powered by a Kohler Command CV730 engine which provides it with a max power output of 26 hp. This engine is a twin cylinder model that has a total displacement of 0.725 liters. The engine is kept running well using a full pressure lubrication system which keeps everything oiled and free moving. The oil reservoir has a capacity to hold up to 1.9 liters of oil. The starting set up on the LT 1050 is similar to a lot of other tractor lawn mowers from Cub Cadet, like on the Cub Cadet SLT1554 and the Cub Cadet SLT1550 garden tractor lawnmowers. It uses a 12V battery in a key starting system that gives the engine 235 cold cranking amps.

Power from the Kohler engine on the Cub Cadet LT1050 lawn mower gets to the rear wheels thanks to a hydrostatic transmission from Hydro-Gear. This transmission system means that you don’t have to ever change gears, making the LT 1050 an automatic. The Hydro-Gear transmission allows the lawn mower to reach a top speed of up to 8.4 kph (5.2 mph) going forwards and up to 3.7 kph (2.3 mph) when it’s moving backwards. The fuel tank can hold up to 13.2 liters (3.5 US gallons) of gasoline.

The mower deck on the Cub Cadet LT1050 lawn mower has a total overall width of 54 inches, even though the cutting width is only 50 inches. The total weight of this machine is 238 kg (525 lbs). When using the disc brakes, you are able to get a minimum turning radius of just 18 inches, which is quite reasonable for tractor mower this size. The mower has a total length of 68 inches and a wheelbase of 46 inches. From the ground to the highest point on the tractor is 43 inches. You’ll be glad to know that there is cruise control on the LT 1050 as standard.

One Review of the “Cub Cadet LT1050”

  1. Tom Branum says:

    Poor. I should have stayed with John Deeres.

    Year of Manufacture: 2009
    Pros: Powerful engine, cruise control
    Cons: Mower deck clogs up easily, cuttings accumulate under pulley covers,
    Water hose cleanout fittings are worthless, hard steering, belt cannot be tightened as it stretches because the idler pulley is all the way back against the passing belt when it is new, bolts holding spindles work lose,
