Cub Cadet - Fail to start again
by SpuriousAlbatross952 #14926293.0
This is the second year that the XT1 mower has failed to start in the spring for my first cut. Had it repaired by Land & Coates in Virginia Beach, I was told it was a loose grounding cable that was not tighten Properly by Club Cadet and work was done under warranty.

I purchased a 2013 Ariens lawn tractor and it has been a piece of *** After 1 1/2 years the seat pan broke off from the shell. I only weigh 175 lbs.
fell backwards seat laying in the grass. I have done regular schedule maintenance faithfully. The another day would not start drop it off a repair shop that sells them was told that the cam shaft was broke. That should not happen.

Shame on them for selling a *** pour AMERICAN product. I will never purchased anything associated with Ariens.
