Default Guide to new Cub Cadet owners

Maybe start a FAQ thread with links to good threads for diagnosing trouble with Ignition, carbs, gears, etc. I know some forums I am a part of have this for new people. Might reduce the number of same questions over and over.

Possibly send this link as well as some instructions to any new member?

Just an idea.

Your theory has merit........BUT you are under the assumption that these people will want to look and read.

I think you will never get the ones who just come here for a quick answer
to read what you are suggesting. The ones who will read it will be the ones that
are wanting to get into this as a hobby.
So while it would be of benefit, but maybe not to the way you thought it might.

We have all seen this hundreds of times, where someone asks a question and some us point them to the Technical Library to where their answer is.

To take it a step farther, there are posters that refuse to go to the Library and simply want to be spoon fed.

I have said this before, and still remains true today. There are people that.....

Want someone to come to their house, diagnose the problem, run to the parts store, buy the parts, return to the project, install said parts, make any and all adjustments, then when you are done, leave a $20.00 bill on the kitchen counter.
Then and only then, will they be satisfied and happy.

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.
