    Well in all fairness this guy is retired, charges a FAIR price and always comes through so no we won’t get a new repairman. Until this year we push mowed so this is just a good reminder to appreciate things. Besides we leave for the beach Friday so I’m good with him fixing while were gone.

    Engine surges when PTO is engaged!

    Ok so I cleaned out any remaining grass and took it for a spin. Didn’t make one round and I believe the spindle belt is what broke. Called our tractor repair guy and he’ll take care of it - just not tonight. When he said we would have to take the mower deck off and PTO belt I said I’m out - it’s...

    Engine surges when PTO is engaged!

    I was mowing along last week when all of a sudden the tractor sounded like a jet engine ready to take off! I cut the PTO and surge stopped. Im afraid to use it now. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Yes. Hubby is a paraplegic and I know this is beyond my realm!

    Where to buy brake pads for 1863

    Probably too mechanical for us. We just want to buy new pads and have someone install them…

    Cub Cadet 1863 brake pedal issue

    I just had my dad’s 1863 CC serviced and am thrilled that soon we will be able to use it for our yard. There are still a couple of issues; it needs new PTO pulleys which will be here this week. More frustrating is the brake pedal. It’s so “tight” and needs to be really pushed down hard. But...
