My New Ride !

Well sort of. The old Craftsman riding mower was a 1999 and too many deck parts were worn out. So, went out and got a replacement.
Cub Cadet XT2 w/ 25 hp Kohler and 54" fabricated deck.
Wish me luck because my wife will expect me to cut the grass more often than I used to.

Nice little tractor there George!
I assume it has a tow hitch for accessories too?
I switched to the Zero Turns a couple of mowers ago, now rocking an Exmark 54"

That Cub is sexy and the seat looks comfortable.

Cool... I use Cub Cadet mowers. (Yeah plural, with 8 acres and a bunch of trees one mower just doesn't cut it... Pun intended)

I actually only mow about three acres out of the 8, very little is wide open lawn though. I probably cut a circle around a few hundred trees each week. I have a zero-turn and two garden tractors... At least one is broken at any point in time.

Well, I guess the cord that I've got tied from the grass chute to the seat. This mower is a lot wider than my other one. Have to pull the chute up to squeeze by the Kubota when going in and out of my shop.

I should look this up but I won't.
What's a fabricated deck ?
Is it a composite ?

Me, I use a self propelled walk behind that takes me two hours to cut my lawn. Lol.

A fabricated deck is welded together out of thick sheet steel... Most decks are stamped one piece units of much thinner steel.

They do have cupholders!
Don't know about George, but Bluetooth Headphones are the only way to go for mowing.

I use these noise-cancelling ones, fantastic sound.
