Cub Cadet SLT 1554 garden tractor

I recently bought a Club Cadet SLT 1554 garden tractor. I had a John Deere 455 diesel garden tractor. When comparing the two tractors there are a lot of things that I like about both.


But some things that I dislike about both. I liked the power steering on the John Deere where as the Club Cadet I don't know if it was offered or not does not have it.

Another thing comparing the two tractors is the option of the mower deck. On the Deere you could lift the mower deck up with a lever where as on the Club Cadet is on one level unless you want to manually move it.

Which means you have to stop turn it off and move the mower deck manually. On the positive note for the Club Cadet, I like the quick attached mower deck. If you need to take it off for any reason, It is much simplier than the John Deere.

It also has the deck washing system which is very helpful cleaning the deck instead of either taking the whole deck off or putting it up on some blocks to clean it.

The diesel verses the gasoline engine is the diesel (of course) had more power then the gas engine. But for all practical uses the gasoline engine for what I am using it for is just perfect.

I haven't had it that long but over all I would recommend the Club Cadet to anyone for the price and the performance.

Cub Cadet 22 H.P
by: Anonymous

I purchased a brand new Cub Cadet 22 H.P. with
Hydrostatic transmission and it has run without
any problems other than normal maintenance like
oil changes, sharpening the blades, etc.
The deck still looks new as I had it sprayed
with the bed liner spray material underneath
before I ever used it. It is gasoline, but I
hate the diesel smell of diesel engines. I have owned this tractor for 7 years and it still starts right up. I only wish the carburator had
adjustment screws so that I could get a golden brown colour on the spark plugs, the engine runs a bit rich and this makes the plugs turn black, and requires you to clean them more often.
