Default This thing is a beast

Last fall I bought a 2072 to use as a mower so I could retire my 1572. I cut once or twice last fall but started to have running issues. Long long long story short it was the carb ended up taking the carb off my other 2072 and doing a switch. This thing now runs amazing. I have had about 27 supers none have ever run like this it will spin the wheels and through stones 10 feet in the air and lift the front wheels off the ground if your not careful. Not sure why it has so much more torque than all the others. Does a great job mowing. I thought about selling but this on is a keeper. Now my problem is where to get a good carb for my other 2072.

Oh, I was thinking you traded your Stang in on a Camero.

Just kidding. I noticed too that my newly rebuilt 982 with the Onan P220 has a ton more power than my diesels do.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
