Cub Cadet SLTX1054

The Cub Cadet SLTX1054 lawnmower is one of the most powerful garden tractors in the 1000 series from Cub Cadet. It has a massive twin cylinder Courage engine that needs it’s oil level to be kept at a consistent 1.9 liters. This engine which has been made by Kohler has a power output of 26 hp which turns the blades on the 54 inch mower deck with ease. The wheels get their power from a hydrostatic transmission that makes the SLTX 1054 an automatic, meaning there is no annoying gear stick that you need to use to change speeds. Instead you just need to either press down on the pedal harder to speed up and ease up on it to slow down. The top speed of this Cub Cadet lawnmower is 8.4 kph (5.2 mph), making it quite nippy when it needs to be. Smaller models than this one include the Cub Cadet LTX1050 tractor lawn mower and theĀ Cub Cadet SLTX1050 ride on lawnmower.

The Cub Cadet SLTX1054 lawn mower tips the scales at 257 kg (567 lbs). This weight is transferred to the ground through large turf tires that prevent large threads from forming one lawns when the SLTX 1054 drives over them. Each rear tire measures 22×9.5 (22 inch diameter, 9.5 inch width) while each front wheel measures in at 16×6.5 (16 inch diameter, 6.5 inch width). Without any attachments the lawnmower measures 1.75 m (69 inches), but this will obviously increase depending on which implements are attached.

Cub Cadet have a long tradition of making quality machines that they are proud to stand behind. The Cub Cadet SLTX1054 is no different and that’s why it comes with a limited guarantee of 5 years or 500 working hours (whichever comes first) to all those purchasing a SLTX 1054.

  1. Harry says:

    Hate it will buy a John Deere or a Kubota next. I have never dislike a mower more!! They are all pretty much by MTD now a days

    Year of Manufacture: 2011
    Pros: Good Engine
    Cons: Can’t mow its way out of a paper bag. And then unless the grass is short and dry it build up in the deck starts howling and then will not mow even. I was excited when I first bought it but the transmission went out shortly after I got it had to fight with the Cub Cadet warranty people to replace the transmission they just kept replacing parts and not the unit even though there had been issues with this models transmissions. Spindles are non grease able I have replaced all three now now the idler pulleys are going out and the belt rolls over! I HATE THIS TRACTOR!!!! I will never buy one agian
