The 2015 Cub Cadet XT1 LT46 is a 46 inch belt drive two blade lawn tractor built by MTD and has a MSRP of $1,699. The XT1 LT46 is the entry level of the 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 46″ stamped side discharge two blade cutting deck thanks to the QuickAttach™ (no tools required) feature 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 the best warranty in the industry with it’s 3-year Unlimited Hours (includes Powertrain) & 5-year Chassis & Front Axle Unlimited Hour warranty 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® 7000 Series 22 HP professional-grade V-Twin OHV is a good engine that has held up well in it’s short time on the market with minimal issues with quality and performance.

Expert Conclusion: The 2015 Cub Cadet XT1 LT46 in my opinion is a good entry level lawn tractor that should hold up to 3 to 4 years of good mowing. I would still consider that anyone considering this model consider the XT2 series that features electric PTO and additional engine choices. Keep in mind while selecting a lawn mowers in the $1,699 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 LT46 mower is an interesting redesign of the LTX series a few years of ownership of this mower will be required to know if this redesign has truly fixed all the issues that the 46″ cub cadet decks have have in the recent past.
