The 2013 Cub Cadet LTX 1050 KW is a 50 inch belt drive three blade lawn tractor built by MTD and typically sells for $2199. The LTX 1050 KW is fitted with a 12-gauge stamped deck that is a bit thin but comparable to many other lawn tractors at this price point, the deck is very easy to remove and re-attach for blade sharpening and replacement. The original blades are really light weight and should be replaced as soon as possible with a Heavy Duty version. The Heavy Duty blades will make a significant difference in the blade life and cut quality of the machine.

The Kawasaki FR Series engine is a solid performing engine with very few issues across all the brands it’s on and has more than enough power to keep this mower cutting and moving at full speed.

    Great mower. Lots of power. Sharp turning radius. 50″ cut makes short work of 1 acre lot. No problems as of 2 years.
