Cub Cadet Tank M60-KW

The Cub Cadet Tank M60-KW zero turn lawn mower is very similar to both the Cub Cadet Tank M60-KH and the Cub Cadet Tank L60 zero turn lawnmowers as all machines have a cutting width of 60 inches. Practically everything about the M60KW and the M60-KH is exactly the same except for the fact that the M60-KW has a much more powerful engine. This engine is a Kawasaki that produces 31 hp. The engine is gasoline powered and has a total displacement of 0.852 liters. The engine uses a heavy duty, dual element air filter that purifies the air intake of dust and other particulate matter before it’s allowed to enter into the combustion chambers of the engine. The Kawasaki engine has overhead valves and a full pressure lubrication system.

The engine on the Cub Cadet Tank M60-KW lawn mower transfers power to the wheels through a Hydro-Gear/Parker wheel motor system. This means that you never have to worry about gear changing. Instead there is 2 lap bars in front of you to control the speed and direction of the lawn mower. To make a zero radius turn on the lawnmower, you just need to push the bars in opposite directions. The top speed of the lawnmower comes to 19.3 kph (12 mph).

The wheels through which power is transferred are fairly large, each measuring 24×12-12 (24 inch diameter, 12 inch width, 12 inch rim diameter). The front wheels, whose main job is to make sure that the deck is kept above the ground are a lot smaller. They each measure 13×6.5-6 (13 inch diameter, 6.5 inch width, 6 inch rim diameter). The deck itself has a cutting width of 60 inches. This 3 bladed deck is raised and lowered in 0.25 inch increments from a low of 1 inches to a high of 5 inches above the ground.

One Review of the “Cub Cadet Tank M60-KW”

  1. john mauersberg says:


    Year of Manufacture: 2008
    Pros: big cut
    Cons: hydro pump didn’t make it to the first oil and filter change 408 hrs, book reccomends 500hrs. I did the first 25 hr change and checked level from day 1. I maintain my equipment! 1,400 repair bill, on it. bearing exploded on it. Repair by my dealer was unsatisfacory. I brought it home and with the help of my 25 dollar an hour helper, we had to clean out the reservoir tank and replacing the $30.00 a pop oil filter and new oil finding metal shavings and a ball from the bearing. Now my concern will be the drive unit….Called cub customer service, got contact with a smart ass fillie, I got no satisfaction as I know I am out of warranty.Just felt it would be right for a company to stand by their product better. This is something that happened as to no fault of mine. My money on a mower will be from another brand and dealer!!!!!
