Cub Cadet 1045 or 1046

3 posts in this topic

I had pretty much made up my mind to purchase a X model John Deere, probably the 304 or 320. I backed off and decided that I did not need to pay twice the money to have twice the warranty. I started looking at the 100 series and realized fairly quickly that I then had to include other brands in my search.

Right now I am looking seriously at a Cub Cadet 1045 or 1046. they are $1650 and $1850 respectively. The 50 has the twin (Kohler) and I am leaning towards that.

Any arguments for or against this purchase? I appreciate any and all comments. This purchase is not coming at a good time for me, so I sure want to make the right one.

I cross posted this on the Equipment-Expert INformation forum also.

I too just made the same jump. Was looking at the jds, but in the end picked up a cub zero turn. I sure like it so far. Less money and a three year warranty instead of two.

good luck

Had a Cub Cadet, will be the last. Mower deck does not compare to a JD and the parts are not the easiest to find. There always seems to be a JD dealer in most larger towns. Just purchased a JD LA175. Great mower.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
