I bought my first Cub Cadet just the other day. After doing some research, I decided on getting a CC because of how popular they are, and how functional they can be. Now that I own it I see the potential, and am really excited to put it to work. I have needed to tune up several things to get it running, but overall I feel like I found a good deal on this 129. So far I have adjusted the carb(still needs fine tuning), worked on the hydro trunion a little bit(the spring was standing vertical in the channel, not horizontal like it should be), and most recently I've been working on making attachments for use around the home. I have the mower deck off for now so I can fabricate a little scraper blade similar to how a grader looks.
