The 2015 Cub Cadet XT1 LT42 is a 42 inch belt drive two blade lawn tractor built by MTD and has a MSRP of $1499. The XT1 LT42 is the entry point of a newly redesigned Cub Cadet lawn tractor line for 2015. The new XT body design is interesting with it’s bold yellow body and what we call it’s big rig hood shape this machine is sure to stick out on your nice green lawn. Fitted with a 12-gauge 42″ stamped side discharge cutting deck the deck is very easy to remove and re-attach for blade sharpening and replacement. The deck engagement is a manual PTO type lever tension system. Cub Cadet is touting a unlimited hour warranty with the new XT Enduro Series mowers but we all know this comes with small print and these units will have plenty of failures that aren’t covered by warranty.

The Kohler Courage Series single cylinder engine is a questionable choice of an engine that has been riddled with quality and performance issues.

Expert Conclusion: The 2015 Cub Cadet XT LX42 in my opinion is not up to par for a true long life lawn tractor I would strongly recommend that anyone considering this model consider the XT2 LX42 that features the much more capable Kawasaki FR Twin series engine as an alternative. Keep in mind while selecting a lawn mowers in the $1499 – $1699 price range you really have to consider your options as there are numerous options available like electronic PTO, fabricated decks, locking differentials and so on so do you homework and look around before making that decision. The XT1 LT42 mower is an interesting redesign of the LTX series but I’m not sure that after a few years of ownership of this mower that you’ll be bleeding Cub Cadet yellow unless it’s at the local dealers parts counter.
