SLTX 1050 Lawn Tractor


25 HP* Cub Cadet® Professional-Grade Kohler Courage® Engine

Twin cylinder design for peak power performance.

Full pressure lubrication gives you reliability and smooth operation.

50" Heavy-Duty Triple-Blade Mowing Deck

The overlapping blades ensure that no grass is left uncut. A wide discharge chute spreads grass and clippings evenly - providing a manicured lawn without clumping or uncut grass.

Heavy-Duty Hydrostatic Transmission

Easy to use, provides an infinite amount of speed settings.

Dual pedals control both sped and direction without having to shift or clutch.


Cub Comfort™ deluxe high-back seat with armrests provides comfort on rough terrain and over large acreage.

The soft touch steering wheel reduces vibration and gives a premium feel.

Easy to read system monitor on dash.


The 12" utlra-tight turning radius allows you to easily mow around obstacles, reducing the need for trimming and backing up.

Grab handles allow for easy on and off, and provide stability on slopes.

Automotive-Style Rear Axle

A tough-built tractor uses tough parts. We use four-bolt hubs with lug nuts for added durability and ease of maintenance.

Cast-Iron Front Axle

Heavy-duty cast-iron with dual grease fittings.

Patented Smart-Jet™ Deck Wash Systems

Attach your hose directly to the deck to wash away clippings and improve deck performance.
