I have both bending beam and click-type and will use both for different things. Click-type gets used the most. 40-200 in-lb, 200-1000 in-lb, (Both Snap-On) and 20-150 ft-lb (Harbor Freight- Pittsburgh). I think both of my bending beam ones are fairly old Craftsman.
If you want the click-type and don't want to spend tons of money, I'd recommend this
one. Should cover all the torque ranges for a Cub Cadet. Haven't personally used it, but it is highly rated and a brand that is halfway decent for other things I've bought.
I would avoid the Pittsburgh one from Harbor Freight...you do really get what you pay for at the low end of the scale. It feels like the mechanism is full of sand, the English units scale is clearly an afterthought to the Metric one, so the English scale is a bit difficult to interpret. I was torquing a wheel lug with mine once, and something bound up internally and it failed to click. Thankfully I was not at the final torque value yet when I discovered this or I'd have probably twisted off the wheel stud.
