 Cub 7195 Mowing problem

I have a Cub 7195 with 5' belly mower and front loader. This is a great workhorse machine and performs really great, except when mowing.The suction on the diesel engine is so powerful that it draws grass to the side and front air grills and clogs them up after about 20 minutes of mowing, causing the engine to heat all the way into the RED. I stop, dust off the grass and go another 20 minutes.The dealer has tried desperately to solve this and even went as far to put a new deck on it. Cub, themselves, haven't shown much interest, as I guess they don't want to admit a mistake.When not mowing the machine performs flawlessly.Any suggestions, ideas, comments, like expierences?

 Cub 7195 Mowing problem

How does the buildup of grass come on the front of the tractor? Something is wrong here as mowing with the ones we have out we have not had your problem. Where is the grass coming from that is blocking the screens?

 Cub 7195 Mowing problem

Art, it has to be coming from the front of the deck. The 7195 has an air vent on the left and right front and across the front, just below the hood.

It's interesting that you say that none of the ones you have out has this problem; The dealer siad they've never encountered this with any of the machines they've sold?

The dealer was so unconvinced that he took the machine home with him and mowed. He called me back and said, "Your absolutely corrct, I had to clear the vents every 20-30 minutes."

Man, this has me stumped. Cub recommended high lift blades, tilting the front of the deck, all to no solution?

 Cub 7195 Mowing problem

We are a Cub Cadet tractor and have never seen this on any tractor and we have sold many compacts. I know bush hogging in tall grass can require a screen to be cleaned every few hours. What type of grass are you cutting is it very dusty and dry ? What height are you cutting at ? I assume this is a side discharge deck. Does grass discharge from the deck at a reasonable speed ? I would run the tractor with side panels off to allow free air flow and see if grass is still sucked up. Give me more details and maybe we can help.

 Cub 7195 Mowing problem

David, I really appreciate your interest. More interest than Cub Cadet themselves have shown in 2 years.

This is a side discharge unit and seems to eject grass at a rapid rate. Again , yesterday I fought this problem. Part of my area is very dusty and quite naturally the problem accelerates in when mowing that area. In the more heavy green areas I can get probably an extra 10-15 minutes of mow time before it's heated to the red.

I most normally mow at about 1/2 position, as my grass is fairly thick in the open field areas; bermuda and field mixture.

It's amazing to watch, as once the blades are engaged debri begins to fly from under the front of the deck, flowing freely to the side and front air vents.

My dealer, in the past, installed high lift blades, tilted the front of the deck and installed some type of metal flange that Cub suggested. All that might have bought me an extra 6-8 minutes.

Am I getting to concerned with the gauge hitting the red? It's always been my expierence that when an engine guage get's in the red one should solve the problem.

On the last deck, I installed some RV brush skirting along the front of the deck; It helped somewhat, but did not solve the problem. I have ordered some skirting to put on this new deck to buy a bit more mowing time.

This matter is totally connected to mowing. When not mowing, you can use this thing with the loader all day in 100 degree weather and never heat it up.


Should I trade it off for a Kubota, although I love this Cub!

This sounds too simple to be the problem, but is it possible that one or more of those high lift blades is installed upside down. Just a thought. Dave.

I guess that could be a possibility, but it's now, since last week, got a brand new deck on it. I'll check out the blade positions.

Thanks for your input.

I sell both cadets and Kubota and would help you trade I wonder if the front of the deck might still be to high.

 Cub 7195 Mowing problem

I don't understand the 1/2 position for mowing that could be causing some problems because mowers are meant to be run at full throttle.

 Cub 7195 Mowing problem

Art, I wasn't clear on the 1/2 position. I run the throttle full; The 1/2 position is on the deck height adjustment; About middle height. Sorry for the confusion.

Your probably located too far to trade; I'm in Arkansas. This 7195 is a great machine. except the mowing problem. I love the Cubs and maybe should go to a 7265 and possibly that would eliminate the problem.

I truly feel it's something in the manufacturing of this particular unit. It's a 97 and only has 135 hours on it and is garage kept.
