 Cub Cadet 3235

I am looking for some opinions on the Cub Cadet model 3235 (25hp Kohler, 60" deck, shaft drive).I have just over 2 acres of flat but rough ground (former farm field, hasn't been graded for future building yet) to mow...would also like to use cultivator and other ground-engaging implements for gardening.I am willing to pay the money for a quality product; already looked at JD G-100 series at Home Depot and that is my distant second choice, also considering Toro LXi series or perhaps used Cub or JD.Also, if anyone has some thoughts on the Cub dealers in the Louisville, KY metro area feel free to post or email me privately.Local dealers selling these tractors around $5895 without the deck (another $1300 for 60"Wink yeah right.Any and all comments appreciated.Mike in Marysville, Indiana 47141

lawn and garden tractors will do some ground braking , but won't hold up to much. If mowing will be most of your work it will probly be ok although 2 acers will take some time. if you plan on much ground braking you should buck up for larger unit, in turn you'll double your speed with mowing.

You should try and compare the comparable models from brand to brand. A garden tractor is going to be the best for a more effortless tilling.

Hi Code3,

Out of fairness you need to compare equal brands and models.
The Cub cadet 3235 or 3000 series compares equally with the Gx series from JD. Execept when Liquid cooled or diesel are need, JD offers that, Cub dosent...The Home Depot models are not in the same league and most likely will not handle your reguirements...Garden Series tractors are what you are asking for.

I have a 2002 Cub Cadet 3235 lawn tractor. Had one transmission replaced by the local dealer under warranty (with some whining on my part required) early on. At 630 hours it's now due for another one. I will fix it and sell it, but I have only used it to cut 2 acres of grass weekly in the summer months. I don't think it should have broken down (again) this soon. After reading the forums about the hydrostatic trans troubles and speaking with other owners, I've decided to go a different way for my yard. I bought a new 2014 60" cut Hustler Raptor Super Duty zero-turn mower for $4500.00. The build quality is quite robust for the money spent. It has a 3-year warranty, a very good reputation, great local dealer support, and many positive recommedations in my area. And it's fast and relatively quit when mowing my lawn. I know, I know, this is a tractor forum. But this was what I decided after having lived with my tractor for a number of years. Take it for what you think it's worth, but maybe take a look at them before you spend your own hard-earned cash.
