I was wondering if the led headlights on the 2017 xt3 tractor can be installed on the 2015 xt3 tractor. If so, is it a simple bulb change or does the wiring and socket have to be changed. Thank You, Paul D.
Hi Paul, If it’s the same hood then you’ll have to change out the headlight assembly. It will plug into the existing wiring.
Thank You. The hood and grill have the same part numbers but the 2017 xt3 shows a headlight assembly part number 925-06095 and the 2015 xt3 shows a bulb part number 925-0963 and a lamp socket part number 925-1649. I’m trying to find out if it is just a bulb switch or what I have to change. If it is a bulb switch, what led bulb do I use?
Hi Paul, You have to change out the entire headlight assempbly.
I was wondering how the transmissions do in these compared to the Husqvarna LGT2654 that I have the transmission replaced in twice once under warranty and once out that has now gone out again. I have a bank I mow but the rest of the yard is flat or slight grade on an acre and a half.
I am wanting go away from a 54″ deck all the way around and am looking for a good 42″ to 48″ deck mower and I was think the Cub Cadet Enduro XT1 LT46 might be the way to go. I am also going to do away with the bank and fence that section off for our goats that seem to do better on the bank than I do with a mower. So what is your take on that model of the Cub Cadet XT1 Enduro LT46?
Hi Douglas, It’s been a good mower. it cuts well and all around it’s one the best mowers on the market right now for under $2000. You can’t go wrong with it.
Thank you for all your help… And I will recommend your insight to all my friends.
Hello again Paul. I had talked to you on a ztr thread and got your recommendation on a CC Z-force S48, unfortunately I missed the Z-Force S48 Commercial carry over unit that a dealer friend had. I am a proficient diy maintenance guy but looking at the menacing drive belt replacement on both Cub & Toro steering wheel ztr’s (and you know it will break when the dealer is closed) I have turned my attention back to a lawn tractor similar to my 13 yr. old shaft drive CC 2166; which btw is spring serviced and mowing great. The new tractor that has my eye is the CC XT3 GS which is the no frills shaft drive model with no electric lift or electric power steering. I called CC and was excited to hear a 48″ fab deck can be purchased with the GS model although the web site shows only stamped decks available for that specific model. I forgot to ask if all the new decks, both fab & stamped, are e-coated for better protection but will verify that with them. My 42″ stamp deck has been plagued with paint peeling and rusting but other than that the machine has been great. I would appreciate any input you can give on the new CC XT3 tractors particularly the GS model. Thanks again for your great articles, Rudy.
Hi Rudy, I don’t know the XT3 machines. I will bet that they have the paint issue fixed though. It’s all about cleaning the metal before it is powered coated and all the brands have figured this out now days.
I bought the Xt1 46 inch cut with the 22hp kohler from my local Cub Cadet dealer about a month ago. The mower does an excellent job, it mows quckly with a sharp turning radius, all while doing a great job. When I was buying it the warranty was a big factor, I know we probably wont put over a 100 hours on it over the next few years, but the no hour limt tells me it must be very well built. Good job
I think they look better then the yellow and white tractors. I’m curious about what they will cost also. It would take a lot to get me away from the tried and true craftsman tractors
@Shayne, I’ll get pricing Oct 23rd.
