Hello all,

Just joined after purchasing a used GT 2186-48 from a friend of mine. So far I love it. I have run into one issue though, and also have a couple questions.

1) It has broken the last two deck drive belts rather quickly, first time I could smell rubber right before it broke, second time i did not. All of the pulleys move freely, bearings seem fine, no noise, no play, etc...

2) There is a little bar in front of the two lower pulleys that moves, from research I see it is a quick latch assembly..what is it for and what does it do?

3) Only the lower front pulley on the right side has a belt guard. should there be one on the left pulley as well?

I searched the forum for the latch assembly answer, but couldn't find anything, same for the guard.

Other than these 3 things, I am very happy with the tractor and look forward to fixing the belt issue and using it for years to come. I also look forward to using and enjoying the forum seeing what others use their tractors for and how what they do to them.

This should be the model number for your 48" deck 190-301-100. Go to the website in the link and you can download the manual.

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.
