Cub Cadet 3X
Superior quality that handles winter's worst.
Cub Cadet's 3X snow blowers offer excellent removal speed, plow-pile removal, and throwing distance. Move snow up to 50 percent faster than a Cub Cadet 2X snow thrower, with a powerful engine and larger clearing width for an even faster snow removal experience.
Want to know more about proper operation, storage, and care of your Cub Cadet? Read on for best practices in keeping your Cub Cadet running smoothly and in good working order for years to come. Make sure to use the right fuels, attachments, and parts for your unit, and you'll always get optimal performance, reliability, and efficiency from your Cub Cadet.
To prevent ice from accumulating on your machine during storage, clean as much residual snow off of the equipment after use. Use a dry method, such as a snow brush or compressed air, before storing a warm machine in an unheated area
Use the following tips to ensure proper storage of an internal combustion engine for periods of non-use longer than 30 days. When an engine is stored over a longer period of time, contamination can result from fuel and oil stratification, which can then cause fuel system blockage or other engine damage.
- If the engine is a four-cycle engine, change the engine crankcase oil with fresh, clean oil (follow engine manufacturer's oil service instructions). Properly dispose of all old oil.
- Add a fuel stabilizer to the last tank of fuel.
- Run engine five minutes; let cool.
- Pump or drain excess fuel from tank. Properly dispose of all old fuel.
- Start engine, run until out of fuel.
- Prime or choke and attempt to restart.
- Repeat until all fuel is used and none is left in fuel lines or carburetion system.
- Perform routine maintenance for storage of the unit per the operator's manual.
- Store in a dry area.
- If your machine uses a DC (battery) starter system, remove the battery in very cold climates and recharge it approximately every 30 days for optimal performance and longevity.
During periods of non-use, a battery can lose power. Although Cub Cadet riding mowers do have self-charging systems, the battery will discharge during down time. This may cause shortened battery life. Charge the battery between two to six amps per hour. Do not charge any battery at more than six amps per hour.
If you have a battery with removable battery caps, you can use a hydrometer to test the battery acid. The hydrometer should read a minimum of 1.260 before putting the battery back into service. Take special care of the battery during any period of non-use that is expected to last for more than a month (during winter, be sure to remove the battery and store it in a warm, dry place).
The "service rating" is the age range of engines for which that oil is appropriate. The rating is at the top of the "donut" and is indicated by a two-letter combination (e.g., SN, SM, SL, SJ). The further down the alphabet the second character is (S_), the more current the rating.
Riding mowers are prohibited by law from mowing continually while the operator is shifting into reverse. However, manufacturers may allow a riding mower operator to cut grass in reverse by manually performing a few "acknowledgment controls" that place the responsibility of mowing in reverse on the operator of the machine.
See your operator's manual for specific instructions on how to activate this feature.
This chart approximates the average cutting time required to mow two acres of lawn with a riding mower under optimum operating and mowing conditions.
|Cutting Deck Width||Est. Mowing Time - Two Acres|
|38 in.||Four hours|
|42 in.||Three and a half hours|
|46 in.||Three hours|
|50 in.||Two and half hours|
|54 in.||Two hours|
