Cub Cadet® 42 in. 19 HP* LTX 1040 Lawn Tractor is rated 3.5556 out of 5 by 72.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tractor I recently purchased the LTX 1040 Cub Cadet and have been very pleased with it thus far. I also bought the bagger kit and will be buying the mulching kit as well. It has given me no trouble so far and runs very well, and does an outstanding job on our lawn. About the only complaint I have with the tractor is that the head lights are always on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding performance at a good price I needed a tractor large enough to mow our open field but small enough to mow some landscaped areas with lots of features to cut around. This mower is fast in the field and precise around the landscaping. Plenty of power. User features are intuitive and the controls have great ergonomics. The hydrostatic drive is smooth and response is linear; no surprise jerks and starts. Even with the HS drive there's enough engine braking to keep the tractor at a crawl on descents. Service points are easily accessible. The cockpit is comfy and noise, vibration, and harshness are low considering it's a single-cylinder engine. If I must gripe, it's the piece of vinyl hose included to facilitate oil changes. A longer oil drain pipe from the engine would have been a tidier design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second Season This is my second season with this tractor so far, and I have to say, I like it. It sat just fine over winter and started right up in Spring. I kind of wanted a John Deere, and I have to say those have a few more same-brand attachments, but given the 12" turning radius and extra 2 HP on this one, I couldn't pass it up. The Deere has a more sturdy hood, but that hasn't been an issue, and that HP came in handy in very tall grass once. I can mow my 2/3 acre in about 15 min if I drive it fast enough and the cut is carpet-like. It also mulches leaves very well, so I don't have to rake. The stripes in the photo are from the roller.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't cut it My best advice would be to pick a different mower. I bought this mower Sept 3, 2009. I have 68 hours on it. I have changed the oil and filter every year I have owned this mower, including the first year when it had under 5 hours when I finished cleaning up my leaves in the fall. The first full year I used the mower the hood bolts vibrated off and the hood came off scratching the hood. This was covered under warranty new bolts were fixed but the damage to the hood remained. The second full year the tractor started smoking for about 40 to 60 seconds on initial startup. I noticed the muffler bolts had also completely vibrated out. This weekend I started it up and waited the 40-60 seconds for the smoke to clear out so I could begin mowing. I drove the mower about 50 yards and hear a nasty grinding sound. I shut it down immediately. Turns out the engine is shot. This mower has been used on a small yard of less than an acre. Seasonal oil changes and only 68 hours and its toast. You have to be joking??? This mower is garbage.
