Ok, I`m off work today, already bored . So I have some questions. I have two tractors : a 2003 Husqvarna YTH1542XPG, 15 HP Kawasaki twin, 417 hours, and a 2004 Cub Cadet LT1022, 46 deck, 22 HP Briggs ELS , 265 hours . The Husq I think was made by Husqvarna, the Cub by MTD . Seems MTD is referred to as a ( lesser ? ) manufacturer , is that so ? The listed weight of the Husq is around 575 lbs, whereas the Cub is around 510 lbs.- does that indicate a sturdier chassis in the Husq ? General opinion, with equal maintenance, the Kawasaki should be a longer lasting engine , correct ? Ultimately, it does not make sense for me to have two tractors, for my 5/8 acre lawn . ( My favorite feature on the Cub is the yellow frame ! ) What ya think ?
