The 2014 Cub Cadet TANK LZ54 zero turn I bought April of 2014 has held up really well. I do have an idler pulley on the deck chirping at me the last half of last summer with 250 hours on the machine. No broken belts, replaced the primary air filter 3 times in 6 years, oil & filter change before the first mow every spring. Even the small-ish 12V motorcycle battery is original. The 27 hp Kawasaki engine just runs and runs, the Eaton hydraulics are as good as it gets. Heavy fabricated deck shows no signs of giving up. It's every bit as good as any of my vintage Cub Cadet tractors have been, and BY FAR better than the B48G Onan under the hood of the 982. When I was shopping back in 2014 I was surprised the TANK actually weighs more than the 982!
