This highly versatile garden tractor from Cub Cadet offers three cutting-modes: rear-discharge, collection and mulching. As a result, it’s equally at home on the sort of long, rough grass you’ll find in orchards and outlying areas as it is on the ‘bowling green’-style formal lawn that’s so popular amongst UK gardeners (the mulch-kit is included).nnMaking it tick is a twin-cylinder OHV engine from esteemed Japanese manufacturers Kawasaki. Thanks to its advanced V-Twin cylinder-layout and OHV formation, the engine is clean-burning, smooth in operation and exceptionally fuel-efficient. Noise levels are also significantly reduced when compared to lower-spec side-valve units.nnThe 106cm twin-bladed cutter-deck on the Cub Cadet XT2 QR106 allows for a fast cut over very large areas and has been offset so you can mow flush against walls and fence-lines.nnTwin anti-scalp wheels ensure you’ll be able to achieve a smooth, gouge-free finish on undulating ground; while a wash-nozzle means you can attach a hosepipe, spin the blades and be sure all the debris has been cleared from the deck’s underside.nnChanging the ground-speed on a manual-shift tractor can be a complicated operation and takes up a great deal of time as you have to stop each time you want to change gear. Cub Cadet have circumvented this problem by equipping the Cub Cadet XT2 QR106 Garden Tractor with a hydrostatic drive; a premium feature that provides smooth, gear-shift-free acceleration (forward and reverse) via a single foot-pedal. A cruise-control function allows you to lock the ground-speed when undertaking long, unbroken passes.nnThe Cub Cadet XT2 QR106 employs MTD’s RevTEK technology, whereby you can choose to keep the blades engaged when undertaking reversing manoeuvres (providing you’re totally sure it’s safe to do so).nnComfort features include a convenient step-though frame, a deluxe high-back seat and effortless light-touch steering.nnThis model boasts a class-leading turning-circle of just 17mm, so you’re certainly be impressed by the way it handles awkward corners and other space-restricted situations.
