The Cub Cadet LT1050 13RQ11CP is part of the lawn mower & tractor test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, lawn tractor models like the LT1050 13RQ11CP are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Side discharging:
A combination of evenness, which is how close the tractor or rider came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how evenly clippings were dispersed from the side-discharge chute.

Mulching:
Reflects a combination of evenness, which is how close the tractor or rider came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how completely the mower distributed its clippings over the lawn's surface.

Bagging:
Denotes a combination of evenness, which is how close the tractor or rider came to even, carpet-like mowing, and a measurement of the effective capacity of the grass bag, determined when the bag was full or when the chute clogged and stopped collecting clippings.

Comment:
This mower is advertised for tight turning, but when turning even moderate turns the front wheels dig deep grooves in the lawn. I contacted Cub Cadet & they said, yes sometimes that happens... but no solution. A mechanic where I purchased the mower saids the front wheel camber cause the wheels to plow up the ground while turning, but there is no adjustment. Recently a tie rod fell off while going straight ahead. The front wheel design & engineering could not be worse. Sorry I sold my Craftsman (10 years old).
