Cub Cadet Tank Sz — Flawed steering design
If you bought a 2013 Tank SZ, your steering will stop working. The gears appear to be cast, which is a joke. What's more is that the bolts that hold the gears to the caster pull down on unsupported areas of the gears, causing them to snap. After 25 hours and meticulous maintenance, both sides of mine are broken, preventing use altogether. Simple spacers would have prevented the problem, or a properly designed gear. Is any company reliable anymore, for any cost? This is a $10k+ machine.
