In my opinion, probably one of the best Cub Cadet models ever built. The 14 hp engine gives it tons of power and the wide frame makes it easy to work on. Also, it has the solid mount engine, manual PTO clutch, and no side panels or all the stupid heat shrouds on the engine like all of the Cadet models built after it, so it's simple to work on.
