Cub Cadet Riding Mowers Complaint - Blown engine after 95 hours service
Purchased the Model 1042 four years ago in April. After mowing my fairly samll yard for the past four seasons and maintaining the mower per company specifications, the engine head cracked after only 95 total mower hours, oil was lost and that was the end of the mower. If this is all the service you can expect from a Cub Cadet mower, I suggest you consider a different brand with something other than a Kohler engine. Guess what brand of replacement mower I did not buy.
